Recipe: Roman Spinach
3 pounds spinach, washed and trimmed
2-3 tbsp olive oil
1/2 cup pignoli (pine nuts)
1 garlic clove, mashed
2 tsp lemon juice or to taste
Cut any large spinach leaves into pieces. Heat the oil in a deep frying
pan. Cook the nuts, stirring constantly until they are golden. Add the
spinach, garlic, lemon juice, and pepper to taste. Cook covered, shaking
the pan to prevent sticking, for about 4 minutes, or until barley tender.
Serve very hot, 4 servings.
