  • Lampredotto
  • Garlic
  • Parsley
  • Spinach
  • Tomato sauce
  • Tomato paste
  • Salt
  • Black pepper
  • Extra virgin olive oil


  1. Prepare the sauté: In a large pot, heat the extra virgin olive oil and add chopped garlic and parsley until the garlic turns golden. It’s important not to burn them!
  2. Cooking the lampredotto: Add the precooked lampredotto (which you can buy at Bambi’s counter) cut into strips to the pot and let it brown for about 15-20 minutes until it is well flavored.
  3. Add the sauce: Pour the tomato sauce, tomato paste, and a bit of salt into the pot, stirring well to combine all the ingredients. Let it cook for another 15-20 minutes.
  4. Incorporate the spinach: Add the fresh spinach and continue cooking until they start to reduce (about 40 minutes).
  5. Season: Season with salt and pepper to taste and, if you like, with a bit of chili pepper or hot sauce.
  6. Final step: Taste and adjust the salt and pepper if necessary. Serve hot, accompanied by rustic Tuscan bread or as a filling for a sandwich.
