    Soldier Girl's Note:

    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.

    1. 1
      Over med-high heat, saute garlic and onions in Worcestershire sauce and olive oil until fragrant and onion is becoming transparent.
    2. 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. 3
      Bring mixture to a near boil, stirring well; add spinach leaves.
    4. 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. 5
      Allow spinach to cook with top removed ~3-5 minutes, as necessary, to reduce cheese sauce.
    6. 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.

      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.
