Penne Pasta with Spinach and Bacon
Submitted By: Superman's Mom
This is a quick light meal. Wilted spinach, bacon and tomatoes are tossed with penne pasta. Good for any season and will compliment anything.

  • Prep Time: 10 Minutes
  • Cook Time: 15 Minutes
  • Ready In: 25 Minutes
  • Yields: 4 servings
INGREDIENTS
  • 1 (12 ounce) package penne pasta
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil, divided
  • 6 slices bacon, chopped
  • 2 tablespoons minced garlic
  • 1 (14.5 ounce) can diced tomatoes
  • 1 bunch fresh spinach, rinsed and torn into bite-size pieces
DIRECTIONS
  1. Bring a large pot of lightly salted water to a boil. Add the penne pasta, and cook until tender, 8 to 10 minutes.
  2. Meanwhile, heat 1 tablespoon of olive oil in a skillet over medium heat. Place bacon in the skillet, and cook until browned and crisp. Add garlic, and cook for about 1 minute. Stir in the tomatoes, and cook until heated through.
  3. Place the spinach into a colander, and drain the hot pasta over it so it is wilted. Transfer to a large serving bowl, and toss with the remaining olive oil, and the bacon and tomato mixture.
