Ingredients:
* 1 box of Ronzoni Garden Delight Penne Rigate
* 8-10 slices of bacon, chopped into bite-size pieces
* 1 package of fresh spinach (I used 3/4 of a bag of pre-washed baby spinach)
* 1 can diced tomatoes with Basil, Garlic, and Oregano
* 2 tablespoons olive oil, divided
* 6 cloves of garlic, minced


1. Cook the penne according to the package directions.

2. While the pasta is cooking, heat 1 tablespoon of olive oil over medium heat in a pan. Put the bacon in and cook until crispy.

3. Add the minced garlic and diced tomatoes to the bacon and cook until heated through. (1-3 minutes)

4. Put the spinach in the bottom of the colander and drain the pasta over it.

5. Combine the spinach, pasta, bacon, garlic, tomatoes, and 1 tablespoon of olive oil in a large bowl.


Serves 4
