Italian Style Spinach Recipe

Healthy, fresh sauteed tender baby spinach, delicious any way you serve it!
Spinach sauteed in garlic, extra virgin olive oil, red pepper flakes, salt and pepper, on Italian bread. This happens to be a night when my husband works late. I decided, since I am trying to eat healthier, I would have this spinach in a sandwich instead of making this as the usual side dish. I love to make spinach like this, use this recipe with Haddock or even mixed with Lasagna. But when I eat alone, I really don't make much for just myself, or skip dinner all together. So here was my healthy alternative. I love spinach this way, and why not in a sandwich? I use the same filling for spinach calzones. So viola! Here is my dinner tonight.

The smell of the fresh garlic frying in the house, hits you right in the face when you walk in the door, besides chocolate chip cookies baking I don't know a better smell cooking!
Italian Style Spinach

1 bag of baby fresh spinach

Pile high with spinach onto the Italian bread and enjoy!
