Number of Servings: 6


    2 10-oz packages fresh spinach
    1/2 tsp salt
    1/2 tbsp butter
    1/4 cup minced shallots
    2 cloves garlic, minced
    1/4 tsp ground nutmeg
    1/4 tsp black pepper
    1/4 cup half & half


Add salt to a pot of water and bring to a boil. Add spinach and boil for 2 minutes, and then drain promptly. Squeeze as much moisture from the spinach as possible, and then chop and set it aside.

Melt butter in a sautee pan over medium-low heat. Add shallots and garlic, and cook slowly for about 3 minutes, until soft (but not browned). Add chopped spinach and sautee until the spinach releases its liquid, then add the seasonings. Cook until the liquid is mostly evaporated, and then add the half and half, and cook until thickened.

Share and enjoy. Makes 6 small servings.
