Drain well in a colander. Press the spinach down to extract the last of the water.

Step 3

Meanwhile heat the oil in a skillet over medium heat, add the pine nuts and fry until golden. Add the garlic and fry briefly, then stir in the spinach and stir until heated through.

Step 4

Season and serve.

Great recipe -- we love fresh spinach and the nuts added a great flavor. Easy to make and one I'll make again.

I love Pine Nuts and they added a subtle flavour to the spinach. The garlic was another plus. This easy recipe will be made over & over again

Very good spinach. I only had about 10 ounces of spinach but otherwise made as directed. I especially liked that the spinach stayed bright green making it this way. Thanks for sharing!
