YOu can use it in lots of italian -like dishes. Names with "florentine" in them neams "with spinach", I think....LOL I like to have spinach with eggs if the eggs are cooked with a bit of olive oil and garlic ... scrambled or poached. It also works well in lasagnas and other pastas with a creamy sauce.

Steam it, and mix it with olive oil and balsamic vinegar. Or, steam it and use it with fat free butter spray. You can put some fresh garlic minced into it also. You can layer mashed potatoes or use a boat of a potatoe, and top with spinch.

Toss it with some sliced strawberries, craisins and raspberry vinaigrette for a really great salad. Maybe more of a summer dish, but sooo yummy!

I normally stir fry my spinach : 500 g Spinach 2 slices Ginger root, peeled 3 tablespoons Oil 1 teaspoon Salt 1 teaspoon Sugar 1 tablespoon Light soy sauce Method : Wash the spinach. Discard any discolored leaves. Cut the peeled ginger root into small pieces. Heat the oil in a hot wok until it smokes and swirl it to cover most of the surface. Add the ginger root pieces to flavor the oil. Add the greens, stir for about 1 minute and then add the salt and sugar. Continue stirring for another minute or so. Pour in the soy sauce and cook for a little longer. Serve hot.

Larger flatter fresher pieces can be used a small wraps.. To wrap food you eat. Chop into very very fine slices and put it into any pasta or dish... or butter your sandwhich and sprinkle the pieces on there... Add it as a topping to any meat... Is different simple things to do. - DNatureofDTrain
