Balsamic Pumpkin Seed Spinach

I love balsamic vinaigrette on spinach salad, so I thought tonight, why not on COOKED spinach?  Well, it’s pretty darn good!  And done in just a couple minutes!  This recipe is not suitable until you reach the nuts and seeds level of Atkins Phase 2 OWL.  It is acceptable for Keto diets and Primal-Paleo as well.
