Baby Spinach with Pine Nuts

I've had this recipe for years. It is originally from Southern Living and it's a "keeper" in my home.

Baby Spinach with Pine Nuts

2 (7-ounce) packages baby spinach
2 garlic cloves, minced
1 teaspoon olive oil
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon pepper
2 tablespoons pine nuts, toasted*

Saute spinach and garlic in hot oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat 5 minutes or until spinach wilts. Stir in salt and pepper; sprinkle with pine nuts. Serve immediately.

*2 tablespoons chopped, toasted pecans or toasted sliced almonds may be substituted.

Makes 4 servings
