Here’s another lunch obsession! Everyone can indulge in this light but delish Bacon and Spinach Pasta.
Tools for the cook:
Tips for easy prep:
Cut up to 4 bacon slices 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.
For a minimal-prepped dinner, I use garlic powder, pre-packaged organic baby spinach and canned diced tomatoes.
5-Ingredient Bacon, Spinach and Tomato Pasta
Share as a side by itself or as a main dish. The pictured Bacon and Spinach Pasta was made with organic, gluten-free pasta with only 2 ingredients—organic quinoa flour and organic corn flour.
🕔 30 minutes (quick and easy)
🥘 1 pan or pot
🌿 5 ingredients
🍴 Serves 6
10 ounces pasta
6 bacon slices
4 garlic cloves (or 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder)
5 ounces baby spinach
1 (14-ounce) can diced tomatoes
In a large all-purpose pan, COOK pasta according to package directions. Meanwhile, CHOP the bacon slices and set aside. Once pasta is done, drain and set aside.
In the same pan, COOK bacon over medium heat until brown and crisp, about 10 minutes. CHOP the garlic (skip this step if using dried seasoning). Set bacon aside and leave 3 tablespoons of bacon oil in the pan.
ADD garlic and COOK for 1 minute. Turn heat off, STIR in spinach and tomatoes, and COOK until heated through, about 3 minutes. (Alternatively, STIR in garlic powder along with spinach and tomatoes). STIR in pasta and bacon to combine.
