Thanks for a good recipe Kim. It was fast and tasty as you promised it to be. I reckon some toasted pine nuts would just finish it off-they go so well with spinach and bacon. It's also the first time I ever bought frozen spinach-normally I would blanch and chop my own. How convenient is that stuff for this kind of dish?!
This was awesome! I will admit to a wee bit of skepticism while making it, because I thought the sauce would never get thick, but guess what? It thickened! I used whole wheat spaghetti as I had no bow-tie pasta, and I also added some pancetta and onion. This was a simple week-day meal that we all enjoyed! Made for ZWT 5 :)
