Capellini with spinach and bacon

I had not planned what I would make for dinner. Sometimes days go way too fast. You plan for three days and figure you’re set for a good amount of time and don’t have to think about it for a while. But then that fourth day just sneaks up on you. This was that fourth day. I had an odd selection of groceries. This was the least weird combination I could come up with (^_^)

the capellini, this one came in rolled portions

KP (no LC) gave me just enough time to decide what to cook and then cut the power. So I cooked the pasta and spinach by candle and the flash light on my phone!

Cook your pasta as the packaging instructs.    

the spinach, washed and cut into large chunks
cook the spinach in a bit of oil and one clove of grated garlic, then tossed in the cooked and drained capellini, mix.
serve, topped with fried collar bacon

I fried the bacon in a pan as usual (no added oil). When it was done I added 2 tablespoons of cream. I wanted it to have a bit of sauce but it didn’t work as I expected. They were still a bit dry. In the end it didn’t need the extra sauce. Next time I will bake the bacon in the oven instead of frying.

I added avocado and bits of feta cheese to mine
