How To Make Bacon Tomato and Spinach Spaghetti
Make a pasta dish that is absolutely flavorful with the right hint of refreshing earthiness. This spaghetti recipe uses spinach for a depth of flavor.
In a small mixing bowl whisk eggs and 1 tsp pepper until eggs are well blended. Whisk in heavy cream and parmesan cheese and set aside.
Cook bacon in a large skillet over medium-high heat, stirring occasionally until just crisp, about 5 to 7 minutes.
Transfer bacon to a plate lined with paper towels while leaving rendered bacon drippings in skillet.
Add onions to drippings and saute until tender, about 5 minutes. Add in tomatoes and garlic and saute 1 minute longer.
Then add spinach cover and cook, tossing occasionally, until it just starts to wilt, about 2 minutes longer.
Meanwhile, cook spaghetti in boiling water just to al dente according to directions on the package. Before draining spaghetti reserve hot pasta water.
While whisking slowly pour hot pasta into the egg mixture. Return drained spaghetti to the now-empty pot set over medium-low heat.
Add egg mixture and cook and toss constantly until sauce begins to thicken slightly about 1 minute.
Add tomato mixture and bacon to pot with spaghetti and continue to cook and toss constantly until sauce coats the spaghetti, about 1 minute longer. Season with salt to taste and toss in half of the basil.
Serve warm sprinkled with remaining basil and with more parmesan.
