Tuscan Style Garlic Spinach

I was never one of those kids that hated spinach. I watched a lot of Popeye, so maybe that had something to do with it, but spinach has always been one of my favorite vegetables. I'm also quite partial to broccoli.

I also love the combination of spinach and garlic, so when I saw this recipe, I knew I had to try it. It combines the two perfectly, and would make the perfect accompaniment to any meal.
