Toast the pine nuts in a dry frying pan until lightly gold. Set aside.

Heat the olive oil in a lidded pan and fry the bacon until golden and crisp. Remove from the pan with a slotted spoon and set aside.

Fry the garlic in the pan until lightly gold, then add the bacon back in and the spinach. Add a couple of tbsps of water, put the lid on and wilt the spinach for a couple of minutes. Once wilted, add the soaked raisins and season, then toss in the pine nuts. Drizzle with extra virgin olive oil and serve.
