    AZPARZYCH's Note:

    I prefer cooked/wilted spinach over uncooked so this sound good. Posting for safe keeping.

      very good. I skipped the oil as the bacon has enough fat in it to cook by itself; otherwise I followed the directions as written for a very easy and good dinner accompanied with salad. Thanks for sharing!

      This is a wonderful tasting and easy to make dish! The spinach was just perfect using the hot pasta water - cooked but not mushy. I skipped the olive oil since the bacon has plenty of fat on its own, and drained the bacon grease before adding the tomatoes and garlic. My whole family devoured this. I could eat this as a meal in itself.

      This was a quick and tasty dinner to put together. I cut the pasta in half but left the rest and got 3 servings. I used bacon from the "fancy" meat store we treat ourselves to on occasion and it was delicious in the pasta, not over powering or too salty. I would add some herbs next time. Made for PRMRT
