  8. Add the onion, then sauté for 3 to 4 minutes, or until mostly soft, stirring occasionally.  

  9. Stir in the tomatoes, garlic and a few generous pinches of salt and pepper, then sauté for an additional 2 to 3 minutes, stirring occasionally.

  10. Add in the wine, then stir to combine, making sure to scrape up any browned bits on the bottom of the pan.

  11. Add in the spinach one handful at a time, stirring it in and waiting for 1 minute or so until it is slightly wilted before adding the next batch.
