Wilted Spinach and Roasted Spicy Feta

Quick easy dinner for two-suitable for Lenten Fridays for those so inclined amongst my Catholic friends.

4 cups fresh baby spinach
2 cloves of garlic, finely chopped
2 tbsp. olive oil
1 lb. feta cheese block, cut into 4 squares
1 tsp. crushed red pepper (I used Aleppo pepper from Penzeys)
1/4 tsp. cayenne pepper
1 tsp. ground pepper
1 tsp olive oil

Heat oven to 400 F. PLace 4 squares of feta cheese on a baking sheet lined with aluminum foil. Drizzle with 1 tsp. olive oil. Sprinkle with cayenne, red pepper and black pepper.
Bake for 15 minutes.
5 minutes before cheese is done, prepare spinach:
In large skillet, heat olive oil, toss garlic until sizzles, add spinach, increase heat to high, stir until wilted.
Plating: 2 squares per person, mound spinach to side. Decorate with lemon wedges and fresh parsley if you have some.
No photo because we ate it in five minutes last night. Sorry!
