Bacon, spinach & tomato pasta

  
I had some left over tomato sauce so today I used some up with my lunch! The tomato sauce is simply an onion chopped and fried in a little oil until soft, add a crushed clove of garlic or some garlic granules, some Italian herbs and a can of tomatoes, season and simmer for half an hour ish.

While pasta is cooking (I use gluten fre) I griddled some streaky bacon on the hob, removed from pan and used the juices from bacon to wilt a large handful of spinach leaves. Remove those from pan and then reheat the sauce in same pan (don’t waste the bacon flavour!) chop the bacon, then toss everything together! Next time I’ll add half a cup of sweet corn to the pasta while its cooking as think that would make this dish a bit extra yummy! 

Would also work with chicken I imagine!
