DIRECTIONS

  • Heat the oil in a pan and fry the onion on a gentle heat until soft but not browned.
  • Add the thyme, garlic (if using) and spinach.
  • Continue to cook on low heat until the spinach leaves have wilted, approximately 2-3 minutes. If you're spinach was very wet and there is a lot of water in the pan, drain some off otherwise the sauce will be very runny. If you're not sure drain it into a separate bowl you can always add some later if you feel it's too thick.
  • Add the ricotta cheese and mix, using a wooden spoon, until it forms a smooth sauce.
  • Season, using nutmeg (I use more than stated above, but then I really like nutmeg), salt, freshly ground pepper and powdered vegetable stock to taste.
  • Sprinkle with toasted pine nuts and serve straight away on your favourite pasta.
