Heat oil in large skillet over medium heat until rippling. Add garlic clove; reduce heat to low. Cook garlic, turning occasionally, until it begins to brown, about 5 minutes. Remove garlic and discard. Remove skillet from heat; let stand until oil cool slightly, about 5 minutes.

Transfer spinach to skillet. Cook, covered, and over low heat until wilted, about 2 minutes. Remove cover; cook, stirring often, until spinach is tender, about 3 minutes longer. Sprinkle with salt and pepper to taste. Serve at once and warmed serving dish.
