DIRECTIONS

  • Bring a large pot of salted water to the boil.
  • Spray a pan with olive oil spray and sauté finely chopped onion, capsicum, bacon and garlic.
  • When soft add mushrooms and as much or as little chilli as you like.
  • Cook until soft.
  • Put pasta into boiling water and bring back to the boil.
  • Cook to your liking.
  • Add dijon mustard and evaporated milk to the onion mix.
  • Stir to combine and heat very gently until pasta is ready.
  • If you like a'wetter' sauce add a small amount of the pasta cooking water to the onion/milk mixture.
  • Place washed spinach leaves into a colander.
  • When ready drain the pasta over the spinach.
  • This will wilt the spinach- the only'cooking' it needs.
  • Add the pasta/spinach mix to the sauce.
  • Stir to combine.
  • Serve topped with freshly ground black pepper and parmesan cheese if desired.
  • **Note: In Australia, on the Weight Watchers points plan, WW bacon is 1/2 a point for 3 slices and the small tin (185ml) of carnation brand light and creamy evaporated milk is 3 points.
