Bacon and spinach pasta

I’ve been craving a delectable creamy pasta dish almost as long as I’ve been craving crispy roast potatoes. While the potatoes are still on my wishlist, I decided to overindulge in this very rich bacon and spinach pasta. It is so easy to prepare and most of the ingredients are usually in my pantry.

I suggest making some extra, as it is even better the day after.

Ingredients:

500 g pasta

200 g bacon, cut into bite-sized pieces

200 g spinach, chopped

1 onion, chopped

1 teaspoon garlic

500 ml cream

100 g feta cheese

Handful of grated cheddar cheese

Method:

1. Cook the pasta al dente, drain and set aside.

2. Brown the onion and garlic in a frying pan. Add the bacon and fry until crispy. Set aside.

3. Cover the spinach with boiling water. Drain after 2 minutes, making sure all the excess water is removed.

4. Mix the pasta, bacon mixture and spinach. Add the cream and stir over a low heat. Mix in the feta and cheddar cheese and let it simmer for about half an hour.

5. Serve with a toss salad and black pepper.
