5-Minute Spinach and Mushrooms
Since spinach cooks down to a fraction of what you started with, adding mushrooms helps bulk up this classic side. Use baby spinach (it's more tender than the regular variety) and squirt some lemon juice on top when it's finished cooking to make the flavors more vibrant.

Great pairings: Red-sauce dishes like Penne alla Vodka or this take on pappardelle Bolognese.
