Spinach sautéed with garlic is a classic Italian preparation.  There are several versions of this dish on the web if you look around.  Here is a quick and simple recipe to start you off. It literally takes 5 minutes or less to cook. If you enjoy citrus flavors, you can also squeeze a lemon half over the top, toss well, and serve.
