Everyone can indulge in this light but delish Bacon and Spinach Pasta. Quick and easy to make with only 5 ingredients. Share as a side or main dish. Cooks in one pan and ready in about 30 minutes. The pictured Bacon and Spinach Pasta was made with organic, gluten-free pasta with only 2 ingredients—organic quinoa flour and organic corn flour.
Ready in about 30 minutes. Serves about 4.
10 ounces pasta
6 slices bacon
5 ounces baby spinach
1 (14 ounces) can diced tomatoes
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
In a large all-purpose pan, cook pasta according to package directions. Meanwhile, chop bacon. Once pasta is done, drain and set aside.
In the same pan, cook bacon over medium heat until brown and crisp, about 10 minutes. Set bacon aside and leave 3 tablespoons of bacon oil in the pan.
Reduce heat to low, stir in spinach, tomatoes and garlic, and cook until heated through, about 3 minutes. Turn heat off, stir in pasta and bacon to combine.
Tips: For ease and speed, try folding 2 bacon slices in half and cut them up with kitchen shears. Use the same plate or bowl the bacon was cut on to transfer the cooked bacon for less dirty dishes, and there’s no need to line the plate or bowl with paper towel.
