2. Spinach, Italian style

1-2 bunches fresh spinach
1 tbsp olive oil
1 clove garlic, minced (1/2 tsp if you are using the bottled kind)
1 tsp salt

Wash spinach in a solution of salted water, let soak for a bit, to get all the ickies off. Prepare a kettle of water, when it comes to a boil, put spinach in for 2-3 minutes. Remove spinach & drain thoroughly. DO NOT throw out all of the spinach water. Save about a third or a quarter (depending on how much was in the pot originally) and bring that to a boil with the oil, garlic, and salt. When it's simmered for 15 minutes, return the drained spinach to the water and simmer for another 20. Remove spinach from water & enjoy.

(I used the leftover spinach broth to make vegetable soup)
