Help identify this vegetable

mielimato | May 17, 2008 02:02 AM

I am in northern Italy now (Torino to be precise) and I tried a wonder new vegetable last night. In Italian, the name starts with an "A." It was a green leafy vegetable and tasted similar to spinach. On the plate (it was sauteed in butter), it looked a bit like seaweed--long and thin. But if you spread out the leaves, you saw several thin long leaves branching out from the sides.

Can you help me identify this vegetable? I'd love to order it again or maybe even grow it at home.

Thank you!
