SPINACH "ALLA ROMANA"
Clean and prepare the spinach. Put one pint of cold
water with one tablespoon of salt on to boil, and when it
boils put in the spinach. When the spinach is
cooked−−in about ten minutes−−drain it in a colander, and turn
onto it the cold water from the faucet for a few
moments. Then squeeze out all the water with the hands. Put
three tablespoons of olive−oil into a frying−pan;
when this is thoroughly hot add the spinach, salt, and pepper.
Cook for a few moments, stirring well with a fork
and spoon, so the oil will permeate the spinach; then serve.
Do not chop the spinach.
