  2. A gorgeous dish! So mouthwatering…



  3. love the combination of feta and spinach, delicious. great blog!

  4. Easy to make and very tasty. Thanks for the recipe!

  5. I made this, but I didn’t boil the spinach separately. About a minute after putting the garlic into the skillet, I just added the spinach directly to that pan and kept lightly tossing the spinach/onion mixture until the greens had wilted.
    That way you don’t lose any nutrients from cooking the spinach in a separate pan, and also you don’t have to wash another pan.

    Very delicious recipe. I also added probably 2 tbsp of balsamic vinegar when the greens were half cooked.
