Spinach Prosciutto

adapted from Prociutto Recipes

Well, the holiday season is almost over. And while I love eating all of the traditional dishes and special foods, I'm always ready to get back to my lighter regular fare. This is a great side dish with lots of flavor and fairly healthy too.

2 Tbsp olive oil
10 ounces spinach (one big bunch)
4 ounces prosciutto (about 125 grams) *You could substitute cooked bacon
1/2 cup roasted red peppers
1 cup artichoke hearts, roughly sliced
2-3 cloves garlic, minced
1 medium red onion, thinly sliced into rings
parmesan cheese as a garnish

Heat oil in a skillet. Add garlic and onions and saute until softened. Then add artichoke hearts, spinach, red peppers and prosciutto. Cook 10 minutes or so, until heated through. Serve warm topped with parmesan cheese.
