The classic Italian combination of spinach and ricotta is hard to beat and makes for the perfect side. The flavours of nutmeg, cayenne pepper and lemon really bring this dish alive and the pine nuts give an added crunch.
- In a dry, nonstick frying pan, toast the pine nuts for 1-2 minutes, until golden. Remove from the pan and set aside.
- In the same pan, heat the oil and butter. Add the spinach, cover and cook over a low heat for 2-3 minutes, until wilted. Sprinkle over the nutmeg and cayenne, season, then toss to combine.
- Transfer to a platter, squeeze over the lemon and scatter with the pine nuts. Top with spoonfuls of the ricotta.
