Eggs Florentine

Serves: 4
Total Calories: 226


3 pounds spinach, tough stems removed
2 tablespoons olive oil
1 clove garlic, finely chopped
Freshly ground black pepper
8 eggs
2 tablespoons freshly grated Parmigiano-Reggiano


1 Wash the spinach well in several changes of cold water. Put the spinach, 1/2 cup water, and a pinch of salt into a large pot. Cover the pot and turn on the heat to medium. Cook 5 minutes or until the spinach is wilted and tender. Drain the spinach and press out the excess water.

2 Pour the oil into a large skillet. Add the garlic and cook until golden, about 2 minutes.

3 Stir in the spinach and salt and pepper to taste. Cook, stirring occasionally, until heated through, about 2 minutes.

4 Break an egg into a small cup. With a spoon, make an indentation in the spinach. Slide the egg into the indentation. Repeat with the remaining eggs.

5 Sprinkle the eggs with salt and pepper and the cheese. Cover the skillet and cook 2 to 3 minutes or until the eggs are set to taste. Serve hot.
