Delish, but I would definitely not call this a "quick light meal." Quick, yes, but light? Not my version. :) My sister-in-law had given me this recipe and her version calls for a full pound package of bacon so that's what I used. Shame on me! I fried up the bacon, drained off the grease and then just sauteed the garlic in a little bit of the grease remaining in the skillet. Feeling guilty about the bacon, I eliminated the 2T of olive oil, and it wasn't missed at all. Also, instead of pouring the hot pasta over the spinach, I just added the spinach to the pasta before adding the tomato/bacon mixture. The texture was right on, slightly wilted but not slimy, with a slight crispness. I will definitely be making this dish again, but only on those days where I get in an extra workout! :) FYI: My kids really enjoyed this dish, especially the bacon, so I think the full pound was necessary. Six slices wouldn't stretch very far or add as much flavor.
