Cheesy Spinach Carbonera

READY IN: 15mins
Recipe by Soldier Girl

My family loves spinach to begin with, but when it was paired with a little creamy cheese sauce and a hint of bacon flavour, this dish didn't last long on the table. I devised this recipe on the spot.

I tried this recipe today, however, I was short on fresh spinach so I added frozen to make enough called for. For that reason I don't think it turned out as good as it could have had I used all fresh spinach. It was pretty good so I will try the recipe again & assess fairly at that time.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Over med-high heat, saute garlic and onions in Worcestershire sauce and olive oil until fragrant and onion is becoming transparent.
  2. Add bacon, tomato, and vinegar, saute until the tomato releases its juice and becomes soft (~2 min.) There should be some liquid released from the tomatoes in the pan, if not, add some water very sparingly and mix cheeses in until the chunks begin to dissolve.
  3. Bring mixture to a near boil, stirring well; add spinach leaves.
  4. Toss and cover for a minute, continue to toss and cover until the spinach has wilted and is covered in the thin cheese sauce.
  5. Allow spinach to cook with top removed ~3-5 minutes, as necessary, to reduce cheese sauce.
  6. Sauce may remain thinner than most cheese sauces, but will still impart loads of flavour to the spinach. Drizzle left-over sauce over potatoes or rice, or mop it up with bread.
