This meal calls for 2 pounds—yes, pounds!—of spinach. But once you saute it, you'll see why. Feel free to add a protein, like chopped turkey or steak, to the colorful, leafy dish.

1/4 - cup olive oil
1 - cup pine nuts
1 - cup raisins or golden raisins
8 - cloves garlic, sliced
2 - pounds fresh baby spinach
1 - teaspoon finely shredded lemon peel
3 - tablespoons lemon juice
1/2 - teaspoon salt
1/2 - teaspoon ground black pepper

In an extra-large nonstick skillet heat 1 tablespoon of the oil over medium heat. Add pine nuts; cook and stir for 3 to 5 minutes or until golden. Transfer to a serving bowl.

Add another 1 tablespoon of the oil to skillet; heat over medium heat. Add one-third of the raisins and one-third of the garlic. Add one-third of the spinach. Cook for 1 to 2 minutes or until spinach begins to wilt, tossing constantly. Transfer to serving bowl. Repeat two more times with the remaining oil, raisins, garlic, and spinach.

Add lemon peel, lemon juice, salt, and pepper to spinach mixture; toss gently to coat.
