Taken from the BBC Good Food magazine. Easy to make and a lovely fresh lemon flavoured supper dish. Even nicer with homemade pasta.

  1. Whilst cooking the pasta, grate the lemon zest and mix with the lemon juice and olive oil and season.
  2. Fry the bacon (no oil should be necessary) until golden brown, about 2 minutes.
  3. Add the pine nuts to the pan with bacon and stir until lightly toasted.
  4. Now drain the pasta and fold in the spinach allowing it to wilt in the heat.
  5. Then stir in the lemon dressing, bacon and nuts and seasoning to taste (drizzle with oil and sprinkle with pepper).
