How Do They Cook Spinach in Rome?

by Steve Ray on November 18, 2010

Janet and I (and our whole family) are keeping healthy with losing weight, exercise and eating good food. While in Rome last week Janet and I ate spinach every day. (Spinach is a SuperFood.) The spinach we ate was so good that  we asked our friend Mario to show us how to cook spinach Roman-style. Not only did he include spinach (as a SuperFood), but also two others: Olive Oil and Garlic.

Like many times in the past our friend Mario took us downstairs into his kitchen on Via di Porta Cavalleggeri across the street from St. Peter’s Basilica — and we took a video so YOU could learn how to make this healthy and delicious dish.

We also added some video and pictures from an exceptional restaurant where Frs. Alfonso Aguilara and Ben Cieply took us for our celebration at the end of teaching our course on apologetics.

Here is the video! Bon Appetit!

I ATE at LA PILOTTA!! I even still have a souvenir somewhere! Our pilgrimage chaplain, Fr. Jim Dowds, CSSR, treated my mother and I to lunch there and Mario made the best bruschetta EVER! A great little restaurant. Mangia!
