I usually don't try recipes from the back of boxes. Something about them doesn't sit well with me.
Seeing as I'm on a quest to use up stuff in my pantry, this recipe was actually appealing to me. Spinach; check. Bacon; check. Pasta; check! And, I had homemade chicken broth ready to be used up too.
The ingredients made me do it. Honest.
Linguine with Bacon, Spinach and Sage - Ronzoni Healthy Harvest
1/2 box Ronzoni Healthy Harvest Linguine
1/4 lb. bacon
1 onion, diced
1 C chicken broth/stock
3 T fresh sage leaves, chopped (or dried, to taste)
1/2 lb. spinach leaves, washed and trimmed
salt and pepper, to taste
Parmesan cheese, garnish
Cook pasta according to directions.
Meanwhile, cook bacon until crispy. The least-messy way I know for cooking bacon is to do so in the mircowave!
Cover a microwave safe plate with a paper towel. Then, spread the bacon over the paper towel.
Cover with a second paper towel.
Cook for 1-2 minutes at a time, until bacon reaches desired crispness.
Heat chicken broth and sage in a skillet, simmer for 1-2 minutes. Add in onion. Simmer until onion is tender.
Then, add in spinach, heating until just wilted.
Stir in drained linguine.
Then, toss in bacon.
Serve topped with Parmesan cheese, if desired.
