Indian Spinach (or, classy creamed spinach)

I would call this saag paneer, but there's no paneer (cheese). But if you like saag paneer and you are either lazy, forgot to shop, or are in a hurry to make a quick meal for one (or maybe two), this is a keeper.  I tried this yesterday without the rice and it was a great.  Today I used the rest of it over macaroni and it made for super delicious mac n' cheese with an Indian twist.  I feel so fancy.

1 box of creamed spinach from the freezer
1/4 tsp curry powder (or to taste)
1/2 tsp garam masala (or to taste)
Rice or pasta

Heat the creamed spinach following the directions on the package.
Stir in the curry powder and garam masala.
Serve over rice or pasta.
