Popeye here to tell you to eat your spinach!  It’s good for you, ya know?

Also, do you know that when you cook spinach, you must start with A LOT of fresh spinach?  As in, you will think you are putting way too much spinach in the pan and then suddenly – POOF – it shrinks!

I generally use 3/4 of a bag of fresh baby spinach for this recipe.  The good news is that your family will have consumed a whole lotta spinach if you eat it all.  And, that’s a good thing.
