Bacon Spinach Penne

DELISH low point meal. It goes something like this:

12oz whole grain wheat penne pasta
1 bag fresh spinach (marketfresh)
8 slices turkey bacon
1/2 medium onion (diced)
1 cup sliced mushrooms
1 clove minced garlic
1/4 tsp crushed red pepper flakes
1 T fat free Parmesan cheese/serving (sprinkle on top)

Cook pasta separately in water.
Cook bacon and cool/dice. Set aside.
Leave of bacon grease (turkey bacon produces VERY VERY little , so I usually add 2 T water to help saute my onions/mushrooms.)
Add diced onions, garlic and mushrooms and sauté. Add spinach and bacon. Cover and stir until spinach wilts. Add in penne pasta and 1/2 water. Stir well. (I sometimes drizzle a mixture of 2 T olive oil, salt, and pepper to taste.)

Top with Parmesan cheese and enjoy!

Yields 6 servings.
Points Total = 5.5
