    Prepare Your Ingredients
    Spinach : wash and dry, then roughly chop.

    Onion : Peel cut in half or mince. smaller pieces help flavour the sauce faster but large chunks are easier to remove IF you do not want onion piece in your sauce.

    Garlic : mince or crush, same principle as the onion.

    Sun dried tomato : we suggest chopping them.

    Sage : chop fine
    Make the sauce
    Set your sauce pan to a gentle heat. Then add some almond milk (about a quarter) and mix in the tapioca starch. Slow add the rest of the almond milk. Mix well each time you add some milk. This helps keep the sauce lump free. Then add the onion, garlic and thyme. Close the lid and let it simmer gently.
    Boil Pasta
    The typical ratio is 1 liter of water to 100g of dry pasta. Bring the water to a boil and then add the salt (salt raises the boil point of water, so leave out at the beginning). Boil the pasta for about 8 minutes or until it is al dente or slightly chewy.
    Sauté The Spinach and Pasta
    Heat some oil in a pan and begin sautéing the spinach and pasta. Turn off the heat as soon as you add the spinach. Then add the sun dried tomatoes, nutmeg and chopped sage. Once the sauce is ready, pout it over the pasta and mix well.

    If you notice the sauce is too thick for your liking, thin it a bit with the pasta water before you mix it into the pasta. Check for seasoning before serving.

    You pasta alla florentina is ready to serve.
