"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."
Hmm. None of these ingredients are on sale today.

reserved bacon drippings
fresh asparagus, cut into 1-inch pieces
1 (10 ounce) package
frozen chopped spinach - thawed, drained and squeezed dry
1 (16 ounce) package
uncooked rotini pasta
grated Parmesan cheese
I've made this twice now. I used Oliveri's alfredo sauce from safeway and it was fantastic. The second time I didn't have any asparagus so I used frozen peas and just sort of cooked them till the spinach was wilted. It was delicious and everyone in my family liked it. Looked fancy!
I didn't have asparagus either so like previous poster I used peas and also added broccoli, which was delicious. I used an alfredo sauce from a package which only made a cup and it disappeared into the pasta when I mixed it (see picture) but the flavour was still fantastic. My family loved the slight lemony taste, it wasn't overpowering but it was a departure from the usual alfredo I make. I also used linguine cause I didn't have rotini, would have been better with rotini. Oh, I only gave four stars cause I think it would be improved with fresh spinach instead of frozen for real spinach lovers.
