  1. Preheat the oven to 375°.

  2. In a large skillet over medium heat add 1 tablespoon olive oil and sauté` the shallots until soft, 2 minutes. Add the spinach and cook until just wilted, about 2 to 3 minutes. Transfer to a colander.

  6. Place the skillet in the hot oven and cook for another 20 to 30 minutes.
