Can you Use Fresh Spinach?
So, I know I’m going too eventually get this question. My answer is: Please don’t. Hahaha!
Yes, you can for sure use fresh spinach and just chop it and sauté it down. But it is much more cost and time effective to buy frozen spinach.

Then use two 10 ounce containers! You will have more spinach, but this recipe is so forgiving that it will still be perfect.
