You can also make this in the microwave by combining the spinach (don't squeeze out the water), artichoke hearts, onion, bell pepper, and garlic in a microwave-safe bowl and cover with plastic wrap. Poke a couple holes in the plastic and microwave everything on high for 6 to 8 minutes, until the spinach is tender. Stir after every 2 minutes.
