Spinach Bacon Penne Pasta from Savory Sweet Life
When I saw this recipe for Spinach Bacon Penne Pasta over at Savory Sweet Life, I knew I had to make it immediately. Pasta, spinach, bacon, cheese...what's not to love? Alice's recipe sounded perfect just the way it was, but I'm not capable of following a recipe without messing around with it a bit. As with most things I cook, I ended up making it as fattening as possible. (I know I'm terrible, I'm working on it...kinda). Since I'm not cured of my evil pork fat lovin' ways just yet, I substituted half the olive oil with bacon grease, I added a splash of heavy cream, tossed in some red pepper flakes and heaped on some extra Parmesan. It was FABULOUS! I highly suggest you give it a try. The healthy version or my artery clogging concoction, the choice is yours. Either way, give it try, it's YUM!
