I Dream of Spinach

Alphaminx

"A delicious pasta dish with bacon, spinach, asparagus and a hint of lemony goodness. The sauce is Alfredo but it's almost unrecognizable. This is one of my 5-year-old's favorite suppers."

  1. Place bacon in a large skillet and cook over medium-high heat, stirring often, until evenly browned, about 10 minutes. Remove bacon with a slotted spoon and drain on a paper towel-lined plate. Reserve 1/4 cup of bacon drippings in the skillet.
  2. Place asparagus, spinach, and garlic into the skillet with the bacon drippings; cook and stir over medium heat until the asparagus is tender, 8 to 10 minutes.
  3. Sprinkle in lemon zest and toss to combine; thoroughly mix in bacon and Alfredo sauce. Reduce heat to medium-low and bring sauce to a simmer.
  4. Fill a large pot with lightly salted water and bring to a rolling boil. Stir in rotini and return to a boil. Cook uncovered, stirring occasionally, until the pasta has cooked through but is still slightly firm, about 8 minutes. Drain well.
  5. Transfer the rotini to a serving bowl and top with Alfredo sauce mixture.
  6. Sprinkle with Parmesan cheese to serve.
