Creamy Spinach Parmesan

Prep time: 15 minutes
Servings: 4


  • 2 tbsp butter
  • 1 large bunch spinach - washed, drained, and chopped
  • 1/2 clove fresh garlic, finely minced
  • 1/2 cup heavy cream
  • 3 tbsp parmesan cheese, freshly grated is best


Heat large skillet to medium-high (350 F for an electric skillet). Add butter and melt, quickly adding garlic and allow to brown for 1 minute. Add the spinach, reduce heat to medium and cook, uncovered, until it wilts and much of the juices evaporate. Depending on the moisture of the spinach, it may exude quite a bit of liquid. Cook until there is 3-4 tbs of liquid left. Add the cream and cook for 1-2 minutes. Sprinkle in parmesan and mix - it may be a bit thin, give it a minute in the pan.

If you are not a garlic fan (heathen), it cdan be replaced with 1/2 tsp of lemon zest for a different taste.
