My entire Italian family has prepared spinach this way for generations, so this "recipe" is classic. Shallots or onions are a nice touch, but certainly not necessary, but fresh garlic, on the other hand, is. Also,if you're going to be making a lot of spinach, don't add it to the pan all at once. Add more spinach to the pan as each addition wilts, which will occur rapidly. Substituting butter for the olive oil is not a good idea, as butter has such a low burning temperature. So if you'd like to add butter, do so at the end. This is a simple and delicious way to prepare fresh spinach!

Use a combo of butter and olive oil...add some crushed garlic to the shallots and add some fresh mushrooms...When done, sprinkle with grated parmesean cheese...remember, spinach cooks down to pratically nothing so if you want a lot, you definately need to cook a lot.

Good stuff and so simple! I used a bit of red onion since I didn't have shallots. I also mixed in two minced cloves of garlic and some mushrooms as recommended by another reviewer. Cooked in a bit of olive oil and butter, it was delicious. I made it with lemon garlic roasted chicken and the meal rocked. Great way to get in extra veggies.
