Great flavors and textures. I used one fourth the oil, four times the garlic and left it in (hey, it's a Spanish recipe!), just a sprinkle of salt and prosciutto that I crisped in the oven (as in Recipe #319957). Everything goes together swimmingly.

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 14 cup olive oil
  • 1 large garlic clove, peeled and cut in half lengthwise
  • 14 cup pine nuts
  • 14 cup blanched slivered almond
  • 1 lb freshly cooked spinach, drained and finely chopped (or 2- 10 oz. pkg. frozen chopped spinach, thawed and thoroughly drained)
  • 14 cup finely diced serrano ham (or proscuitto, 1 oz.)
  • 1 teaspoon salt


  1. In a heavy 10-12 inch skillet, heat the olive oil over moderate heat until a light haze forms above it. Add the garlic and, stirring constantly, cook for 1 or 2 minutes.
  2. Remove the garlic with a slotted spoon and discard it. Add the pine nuts and almonds to the oil remaining in the pan and cook for 2-3 minutes, or until they are slightly brown.
  3. Add the spinach, ham, and salt and toss together with a spoon until the ingredients are thoroughly mixed and heated through. Taste for seasoning and serve at once.
