Sauteed Spinach with Lemon and Pine Nuts

Serves 6



1/3 cup pine nuts
2 tablespoons extra virgin olive
1 clove garlic, minced
3 large bunches spinach
1 teaspoon grated lemon zest
Salt and freshly ground black pepper


Place the pine nuts in a skillet over medium heat.  Stir and toss until lightly golden, 30 to 60 seconds.  Remove from the pan and reserve.

Warm the olive oil in a large skillet.  Add the garlic and cook 10 minutes.   Add the  spinach and toss with tongs until the garlic is mixed in with the spinach and the spinach just begins to wilt.  Add the lemon zest and pine nuts and toss well.  Season with salt and pepper.
