Ingredients:

  • 3 tbsp Unsalted butter

  • 4 cloves Garlic (minced)

  • 10 oz Baby spinach (chopped; about 16 cups)

  • 1/2 cup Heavy cream

  • 3 oz Cream cheese (cut into small pieces)

  • 1 tsp Italian seasoning

  • 1/4 tsp Sea salt

  • 1/4 tsp Black pepper

  • Parmesan cheese (optional, for topping)

Directions:​

  1. Heat butter in a large saute pan or wok over medium heat. Add minced garlic and saute until fragrant.

  2. Add spinach. Saute for 2 to 4 minutes, until wilted. If the pan is too full to stir at first, cover it for a minute or two, which will let the spinach at the bottom wilt. Then you can start to stir in a folding motion.

  3. Add heavy cream, cream cheese, sea salt, black pepper, and Italian seasoning. Stir constantly until the cream cheese melts, then cook a few minutes until thickened.

  4. If desired, sprinkle with Parmesan cheese for serving.
