Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil. Add spinach, and cook just until wilted, about 1 minute. Remove from the pot and drain in a colander. Try to squeeze out as much liquid as possible and cut the spinach into smaller pieces.
Place the spinach in a bowl, add the beaten egg, sultanas, pine nuts, cheese and a sprinkling of nutmeg; add salt and pepper to taste.
Mix carefully and place the mixture in a buttered oven dish. Sprinkle with breadcrumbs and dot with a few knobs of butter and place in the oven at 180°C for 30 minutes.
