OK, T, sorry for the delay, I've had some more coffee.

I suggest you make a variation of what I'm making myself for dinner, I'm using Swiss chard in what I'm making, but it's kind of a pain to deal with, so I'm going to suggest you use baby spinach (they sell it in bags).

So, you'll need: bag of baby spinach, box of small type pasta (I'm using gemelli), 2 or 3 cloves of garlic, olive oil or butter, parmesan cheese, red pepper flakes.

Put a pot of water on to boil for the pasta. Wash the spinach & roughly shred it. Mince the garlic. Cook the pasta according to directions on box. While pasta is cooking add 1/4 cup olive oil or butter to a large high sided pan on medium high heat. Once the oil is hot, add some red pepper flakes, maybe a little less than a teaspoon, stir them around a little, then add the minced garlic, stir that around for about a minute (if the pan is too hot, the garlic will burn & you will need to start over), then add your spinach, stirring as it becomes possible to do so. Once all the spinach was wilted, that part is done, remove it from the heat. Once pasta is done, toss with sauteed spinach & parmesan to taste.

That sound OK?

P.S. Oh, crap, editing this post, atypical- this would also be good with cannellini beans in it, if you want to do that, get a small can of those also, rinse well and add to pan before spinach, tossing till warm.
