I've made this a few times. Each time adding a little bit of chicken broth right before I toss with the pasta. My family likes their pasta soupier as opposed to dry. This way it's a definite 4 stars. Tonight I decided to experiment with this recipe. I cooked the bacon until crispy. Drained and set aside. I used the bacon drippings to cook an onion along with about 4 cloves of garlic. I added about 10 ounces of mushrooms and 3 roasted red peppers. Added 1/2 cup of white wine and 1 cup of heavy cream. Threw the bacon back in. Threw in the spinach at the very end and tossed altogether with the pasta. Wow, this brought it to a whole new level. The original recipe is light and fast and delicious. My tweaking made it a 5 Star but also increased fat and calories. Will make again both ways BUT will make it more the way that it is written. P.S. I had fresh spinach earlier in the week but was afraid it was going to spoil, so I washed it...DRIED it very well and then froze it in a ziploc baggie. I was able to use my fresh/frozen spinach without a problem. Thanks for sharing. Beautiful dish !
