Expert Tips

You can microwave both packages of spinach in a glass bowl, covered, for 10 minutes. Separate with a fork, and cook 4 to 5 minutes or until spinach is tender.

Drain spinach well by lining a colander with a couple sheets of paper towel. Wrap towel around spinach, and squeeze water out.
