This barely wilted spinach cooks up in just a couple minutes. The cooked apples and raisins adds a really nice sweetness to this dish and the pine nuts a wonderful texture. We absolutely loved it and I hope you do too. Do you like your spinach cooked, fresh or both? Let me know in the comments below.
