  • 1 bag (16 oz.) frozen spinach, preferably organic, thawed and drained
  • 2 tbsp. olive oil
  • 4 cloves garlic, grated or finely chopped
  • Salt and pepper
  • 1  1/2 cups heavy cream
  • Freshly grated nutmeg, to taste (a few grates)
  • 1 cup loosely packed freshly grated Parmigiano-Reggiano (about 2 oz.)


1. Place the spinach in a clean kitchen towel (not terrycloth), gather the edges together and twist to wring dry. Using your fingertips, loosen and fluff up the spinach. 

2. In a medium skillet, heat the oil, two turns of the pan, over medium-high. Add the garlic and swirl the pan until fragrant, 30 to 60 seconds. Add the spinach; season with salt and pepper. Stir in the cream; season with the nutmeg. Bring to a bubble, reduce the heat to medium and simmer at a low boil until thickened, about 10 minutes. Stir in the cheese.
