Spinach with Feta

1 x 10-ounce bag fresh spinach
2 tbsp extra-virgin olive oil
3 green onions, chopped
½ c crumbled feta cheese
2 cloves garlic, minced
1 tb dried dillweed
¼ tsp pepper

Rinse spinach and shake off excess water. 
In large frying pan over medium-high heat, cover and cook spinach in only the water clinging to the leaves, until they start to wilt, about three minutes.
Transfer to colander, press out liquid, and coarsely chop.
In pan, heat oil over medium heat and fry onions, garlic and dill till softened, about three minutes. Add spinach, pepper, and all but one tablespoon of the cheese, cooking and stirring till cheese softens, about two minutes. 
Sprinkle with remaining cheese and serve.

Don't be dismayed when you see how little volume there is in the end. This makes a small bowl and is intensely flavoured; there will only be a couple small spoonfuls per person and that will be enough. It's sort of a special treat, very rich; you don't want a whole lot of it.
