I’ve realized it has been quite a while since I shared a non-dessert recipe! I’m not sure if I even want to know what you guys think of my eating habits. I swear I’m not addicted to sugar and butter! (at least that I know of)
So to give you a break from all the sweets, I’m sharing with you all one of my absolute favorite pasta dinner dishes. I have used many different types of noodles for this. Penne, fusilli, farfelle, are all great, basically whatever floats your boat.
One of my favorite combinations in savory dishes is parmesan cheese, spinach, and bacon and this pasta dish combines all of those!
This is one of those easy and quick to prepare dinners that really satisfies and is comforting and warming in this winter season. So when you want to take a break from all the cookies and cupcakes, fix up yourself a nice dish of popeye’s pasta.
1 box pasta
1/4 cup unsalted butte or margarine
2/3 cup grated parmesan cheese
1 (9 oz.) bag of spinach
1/4 cup bacon bits
- Prepare pasta as directed on box, drain, place pasta back into large pot. Add butter (or margarine), cheese, spinach, and bacon bits to pasta. Mix and stir over the lowest heat until cheese is melted, spinach is wilted, and everything is thoroughly combined. Serve and enjoy!
