Bacon & Spinach Fusilli

Bacon & Spinach Fusilli


500g dried fusilli or any dried pasta shapes
2 x 200g packs of baby spinach leaves
Low calorie cooking spray
10 lean bacon rashers, roughly chopped
100g lean ham
2 garlic cloves, crushed
2 tsp dried sage
1 tsp dried red chilli flakes
Salt and black pepper


Cook the pasta according to the packet instructions then drain and set to the side.

Place the spinach in a wide heatproof bowl, pour over just enough boiling water to cover and leave to wilt for 2-3 minutes.

Spray a large non stick saucepan with low calorie cooking spray and place over a medium high heat. Stir fry the bacon for 4 minutes or until lightly golden.

Drain the spinach in a sieve and squeeze out any excess water. Roughly chop and add the bacon along with the ham, garlic, sage and chilli flakes and heat through for 2 minutes.

Add the pasta to the spinach, bacon and ham and toss to mix well. Season and serve with salad.
