Get yourself a nice cut of fresh spinach in pocket size or make a small pocket cut yourself. Start by lightly blanching the spinach and chopping it coarsely. Also clean and blanch the potatoes, once cooked cut them into small pieces.

In a bowl mix the spinach with the pine nuts, the datti cut into pieces, the beaten egg, salt and pepper. Now fill the pocket with the filling and sew lightly with kitchen string or close with toothpicks.

In a pan also suitable for oven cooking, heat the oil and lightly brown the beef spinach on both sides. Pour in the wine, oil, salt and add the potatoes.

Now move on to cooking in a preheated oven at 200° for about 1 hour and 20 minutes, basting often with the sauce that forms during cooking. Remove from the oven, let cool slightly, cut into slices and serve with the potatoes.
