Penne Pasta With Spinach and Bacon

READY IN: 25mins

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!
