I love finding ways with Spinach as it is a tasty vegetable and so good for you. I found this recipe while coming across Food blogger Savory Sweet Life. I used whole grain pasta and cooked it slightly longer than the normal pasta as grain and wheat pasta’s tend to be more tough. I loved the bacon and spinach addition as it gave this very simple dish so much flavor. I think next time I might throw in some cherry tomatoes in there. The Parmesan cheese was a nice addition too. This makes for a great quick lunch idea.
