Spinach 'Alla Romana'


Clean and prepare the spinach.

Put one pint of cold water with one tablespoon of salt on to boil, and when it boils put in the spinach. When the spinach is cooked, in about ten minutes, drain it in a colander, and turn onto it the cold water from the faucet for a few moments. Then squeeze out all the water with the hands.

Put three tablespoons of olive-oil into a frying-pan; when this is thoroughly hot add the spinach, salt, and pepper. Cook for a few moments, stirring well with a fork and spoon, so the oil will permeate the spinach; then serve. Do not chop the spinach.


Simple Italian Cookery.
