Serves 4 servings

2 pounds (10 cups) fresh spinach (yields 2 to 3 cups of cooked spinach)
1 tablespoon butter
1 garlic clove, smashed
1 cup heavy whipping cream
1/2 cup parmesan cheese
Salt and pepper


Sauté the spinach in the butter. Once it wilts by half, add the garlic. Sauté until the spinach is fully wilted.

Add the cream and cheese. Reduce for 2 minutes, until it’s bubbly and perfect. Add salt and pepper to taste. Serve alongside a ribeye.
