"The tradition of Italian cooking is that of the matriarch. This is the cooking of grandma. She didn't waste time thinking too much about the celery. She got the best celery she could and then she dealt with it."--Mario Batali

3 Garlic Cloves
1/2 lb Spinach
2 tbsp Sesame Oil

Optional Meat of either 2lbs of beef or chicken. If you do, make double the amount of sauce (Sesame oil, soy sauce, and brown sugar) for the marinade.
