I repeated Rita~'s cooking method and sauteed the garlic, pine nuts and sultanas together and then added the fresh spinach while the skillet was still hot, and I cooked it just until the spinach wilted a bit (maybe 5 minutes or so). And it was delicious. The sultanas add a wonderful taste, and the pine nuts give it a nice contrasting texture. We really enjoyed this dish. Thanks for sharing your recipe, Elmotoo. Made for the Best of 2012 tag game.

This is a quick to put together. And I made it even quicker then stated in directions. I sauteed roasted garlic, pine nuts and raisins for a touch in the oil then I added baby spinach right to the mix, tossed n covered till just wilted. This would work great with bitter green adding sweetness for the sultanas. Thanks made for Veggie Tag. Thanks

If you love spinach then you are sure to love this tasty dish. I didn't use the sultanas as they weren't in the ingredient list, so I didn't even realize it until I was making the dish. So I used crasisns instead. I loved the sweet tart of the crasins and the pine nuts together with the garlic and spinach! Excellent! Made for Veg 'n Swap tag.

Yum, this was really good. I'm always trying to find new ways to actually enjoy spinach and this is one! I did use baby spinach instead but I loved the garlic and pine nuts in it. Made for Bistro Babes ZWT 8!

Yummmm, I just love spinach and this is great! I made 1/6 of the recipe and it made a lot for 1 side dish serving (I had no problem eating it though!). I didn't notice the sultanas that are in the instructions when I made it, didn't have any, so just skipped that part. Made for my fellow Chef Gone Wild for ZWT8. Thanks Elmotoo! :)
