  1. Heat the butter and olive oil in a skillet at medium-high heat. Add the onion and garlic and stir continuously for about 2-3 minutes until soft. Add the spinach a handful at a time and cook until all of it is wilted down. Put the spinach in a fine mesh strainer and squeeze out the liquid.
  2. Return the spinach to the pan, season with the salt and pepper and add the heavy cream. Cook down until the cream starts to bubble. Mix in the cream cheese until it melts all the way through and the mixture is thick and bubbly. Remove from the heat and serve.
