From the Bon Appetit Cookbook. The flavors of the currants, garlic and capers are a wonderful combination.

What a delightfully different way to serve spinach! Didn't have any currants, so I used golden raisins--seemed to work just fine! Loved the capers and romano cheese--two family favorites! Thanks so much for sharing this, we'll be having this again often!
