Spinach and Bacon Pasta

This is a delicious & very quick dish

All I do is cut up some bacon into small pieces & fry it in a little olive oil while boiling water to cook the pasta

I usually use fresh pasta as it cooks quicker but dried works just as well!

Once the bacon is cooked and the pasta is cooking (depending on whether fresh or dried) I add a bag of baby spinach to the bacon and wilt it

Then add some grated Parmesan, Grana Padano or Cheddar (personal choice - all work well) to the bacon and spinach mix

Drain the pasta once cooked then toss the bacon and spinach with the pasta and serve

I find it doesn't need any salt but a little black pepper is very nice. Add more grated cheese on top if you like
