“I love sauteed spinach with garlic, and one day I got creative and threw in some shredded cheddar cheese (Tilamook is the best). Yum! Yum! What a delightful treat my surprise turned out to be! :-) This may even appeal to non-spinach lovers because of the wonderful cheesy taste it brings. Please note that, when you first start to saute the spinach leaves, it will appear to be too much spinach, but once it begins to wilt, it becomes a much smaller quanity. Best of all, this dish literally takes about 5 minutes to throw together!”
