Ingredients

Spinach with Cheese and Eggs: Spinaci Cacio e Uova
Spinach Puff: Sformato di Spinaci

Directions

For the spinach eggs:

In a large saute pan, heat the olive oil over medium-high heat and add the spinach and garlic. Cook over high heat for 2 minutes.

Crack the eggs, 1 at a time, into the simmering spinach. Season each egg with salt and pepper and top with the pecorino. Cover the pan and cook over high heat until the eggs are set. Turn out of the pan onto a serving platter or bowl and serve hot.

For the spinach puff:

Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F.

Bring 6 quarts of water to a boil over high heat and add 2 tablespoons salt. Add the spinach and cook for 30 seconds, until just limp, then drain, squeeze out the excess moisture, and finely chop.

Place the spinach in the bowl of a food processor and puree with the cinnamon, and salt and pepper, to taste. Turn the puree out into a bowl, stir in the butter, eggs, and cheese and combine well.

Turn the mixture into a medium well-buttered casserole and bake in the oven for 15 to 25 minutes, until the eggs are set and the top is golden brown. Serve hot, in wedges.
