This is a really fabulous tasting side. Loved the perfect compliment of the pine-nuts to the tangyness of the spinach. I followed your recipe as written using fresh spinach. I have to admit this was the first for me using pine-nuts. Won't be the last by any means. I loved toasting them first b/f sauteeing with the other ingredients. Wonderful, wonderful. Thanks for posting this recipe Mersaydee's and glad I tagged for NewestZaar Tag. 08'

This is very good, very healthy, and packed with fiber. I think that there are enough pine nuts to cut the quantity in half next time we make this to reduce the calories. We did a separate nutritional analysis and most of the calories are coming from the pine nuts. Made for ZWT8.
