Ingredients list


  • Bring a large pot with plenty of salted water to a boil.
  • Meanwhile, thoroughly wash and dry the spinach leaves. Peel and dice the onion. Dice the bacon as well.
  • Heat a large frying pan over medium heat and lightly fry the bacon in it. Then remove and set aside.
  • Now add some olive oil to the pan and briefly sweat the diced onions in it. Add the spinach and cook for a few minutes with the lid closed.
  • Add the pasta to the boiling salted water and cook until al dente.
  • Put the cooked spinach in the cup of the hand blender and blend a little.
  • Return the resulting spinach puree to the pan, add the liquid cream and fried bacon, mix everything well and simmer on low heat for about 5 minutes.
  • Then add the grated Parmesan cheese, season with a little nutmeg, salt and pepper. Crumble in the dried hot peppers and mix well. If the sauce is not creamy enough, add a little pasta water.
  • Once the pasta is done, drain it and then add it directly to the pan to the spinach cream sauce and mix everything thoroughly.
  • Finally, arrange on deep plates, sprinkle with grated Parmesan and serve hot!
