you may want to cook the spinach in two batches if you’re using a smaller pan, simply add the garlic pan and then half the spinach, then remove it to another dish and wilt the second half of the spinach,┬áreturn it all to the pan and press to remove excess water

also add more feta if you like it only gets creamier and MORE delicious the more you add
