Penne with Spinach and Bacon
I made this for supper last night and it was really good! Sprinkled Feta cheese on top. I took a picture of hubby`s. Made ours separate because he had to work late, so I have no idea what amount of pasta I actually used in the end. I always make too much. But I really think the sauce makes enough for two rather than four servings. Tasty and easy!
1 (12 ounce) package penne
2 tablespoons olive oil, divided
6 slices bacon, chopped 2 tablespoons minced garlic
1 (14.5 ounce) can diced
1 bunch fresh spinach, rinsed
And torn into bite-size pieces
1. Bring a large pot of lightly salted water to a boil. Add the penne pasta, and cook until tender, 8 to 10 minutes.
2. Meanwhile, heat 1 tablespoon of olive oil in a skillet over medium heat. Place bacon in the skillet, and cook until browned and crisp. Add garlic, and cook for about 1 minute. Stir in the tomatoes, and cook until heated through.
3. Place the spinach into a colander, and drain the hot pasta over it so it is wilted. Transfer to a large serving bowl, and toss with the remaining olive oil, and the bacon and tomato mixture.
