Caprese English Muffin Pizza

It's Friday night. I just got done with a 66 hour work week. It took me 2 hours to get home. I want to order pizza, but I don't want to feel sluggish after. So, what's in the pantry?

The answer? Enough leftovers to make this:

English/British muffins (depends on where you buy them)
2 cloves garlic, minced
2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
2 cups baby spinach, chopped
1 tomato, diced
3 tablespoons basil, finely chopped
1 cup mozzarella cheese, shredded
2 tablespoons Parmesan cheese, shredded

Preheat oven to 350F.
Heat olive oil over medium heat in a frying pan.
Add garlic and let brown.
Add chopped spinach.
Cover with a lid until spinach starts to shrink down.
Add diced tomatoes until heated through. 
Remove from heat.
Cut muffins in half and place on cooking sheet.
Spoon sauteed vegetables onto muffins until covered.
Be careful not to add any of the liquid from the pan onto the muffin.
Don't want soggy muffins.
Mix two cheeses together in a bowl and sprinkle over muffins.
Cook in oven for about 10 minutes.
Enjoy with a glass of wine.

Yum! Not bad for totally winging it.
