Roman Style Spinach Recipe at
Clean the spinach thoroughly, washing it several times in running water to remove all the gritty soil. Put the spinach into a saucepan with the water that clings to the leaves. Add a pinch of salt and cook slowly until the spinach is wilted and quite soft. Drain, squeeze dry and set aside on a plate.

Meanwhile, soak the golden raisins in lukewarm water for 10 minutes or so. Drain and squeeze dry.

In a wide, shallow pan, melt the butter with the olive oil. When heated add the garlic and fry gently until colored. Remove the garlic and add the spinach, pine nuts and golden raisins. Cook for 5 or 6 minutes, stirring frequently. Taste for salt. Serve.
