Pasta in green bacon sauce: So my kids like spinach!


  • 500 g of pasta (Farfalle, Spätzle, Rigatoni or whatever you want)
  • 700 g of spinach (I take frozen spinach, which is individually portionable)
  • 200 g bacon cubes
  • 1 small diced onion
  • 1 crushed pink toad
  • Salt / pepper to taste
  • 200 g of grated hard cheese or diced feta cheese


  1. Cook pasta as usual and during that ...
  2. Fry the bacon cubes, onions and garlic in a large pot (if there is enough bacon on the ham, you do not need extra fat).
  3. Put the spinach into the pot and heat up with stirring (if necessary, add a little water).
  4. Season with salt and pepper to taste (if you want you can add the classic spinach spice nutmeg, I always leave it off because I did not like it even as a child).
  5. When the spinach is cooked, add the cooked noodles and mix well.
  6. Finally ... either stir in diced feta cheese or sprinkle with grated hard cheese (put the lid on the pot and wait a minute, then the cheese melts).

My children eat spinach only in this form.
