Ingredients:  
2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
1 teaspoon extra-virgin olive oil for drizzling
4 medium cloves garlic, cut crosswise into very thin (1/16-inch) slices (about 2 tablespoons)
3 (10-ounce) bags flat-leaf spinach, stems removed, leaves washed and dried
Table salt
pinch red pepper flakes
teaspoon grated lemon zest
4 tablespoons lemon juice

Directions:
Directions:
1. Heat 2 tablespoons of the oil and garlic in a Dutch oven over medium-high heat; cook until the garlic is light golden brown, shaking the pan back and forth when the garlic begins to sizzle, about 3 minutes (stirring with a spoon will cause the garlic to clump). Add the spinach by the handful; using tongs to stir and coat the spinach with the oil.

2. Once all the spinach is added, sprinkle 1/4 teaspoon salt, pepper flakes, and lemon zest over the top and continue stirring with tongs until the spinach is uniformly wilted and glossy green, about 2 minutes. Using tongs, transfer the spinach to a colander set in a sink and gently squeeze spinach with tongs to release excess juices. Return the spinach to the Dutch oven; sprinkle with lemon juice and stir to coat. Drizzle with the remaining 1 teaspoon olive oil and sprinkle with additional salt to taste. Serve immediately.
