Cook the pasta according to the package directions. Drain and return to the pot. Add the olive oil, vinegar, and spinach and toss to wilt. Stir in the scallions, raisins, ricotta, 1/2 teaspoon salt, 1/2 teaspoon pepper, and the basil.
Divide among individual bowls and top with the Parmesan and pine nuts, if using.

A good idea... in theory.
First, it seems like there is an error in the instructions above. Spinach doesn't come in 1 oz. packages. And if you *do* use 1 oz, you will end up with a warped pasta-to-spinach ratio (as I learned the hard way!)
Second, I think the instructions are a little overly simple. I would wilt the spinach in a separate pan to retain the heat when you combine the spinach and pasta.
Finally, I added garlic and omitted the raisins, and I would highly recommend the same!
