This recipe is simple and it is delicious! I highly recommend making this smile. Here are a few tips: Since I couldn’t find “bunches” of spinach, I used the bagged salad spinach, and used 3 bags (I think they are 6oz bags). That made about 5 or 6 servings. I just chopped the spinach a little before cooking it (since the bagged spinach is already washed and the stems are small you don’t have to remove them), and then it was a little watery when everything looked done so I added some flour to make it thicker (kind of how you would thicken up gravy). You also don’t need the olive oil in addition to the butter in my opinion. Also, I find the onions to be delicious but if you are not an onion lover you might want to cut back or pick a small onion (or just use a shallot).
