thickened. (The flavor of this sauce improves after standing overnight.)

leaves, place in a large pan over medium high heat. Cook until spinach just
begins to wilt and most of water has evaporated. Empty onto cutting board

directions. Place single layer of wontons in hot oil (about 1/4" in bottom
