Easy Breezy Comfort Food

This takes 10 minutes or as long as it takes to cook spaghetti noodles. It's a wonderful fast meal that everyone will like and it's full of Omega 3, Iron and protein. This is a beautiful dish all glistening with green, red, with the smokey flavor of bacon. Yum.

Serves 4
Spaghetti Noodles for 4
Fresh spinach 1 pkg baby leaves
4 eggs
1 clove garlic
Parmesan Cheese to sprinkle on top
Fresh tomato 1 large or for a sweeter dish 12 cherry tomatoes
8 strips of lean bacon
Oregano and Sage - Just a sprinkle of each
4 T Olive Oil (Olive oil is more flavorful the darker the color. It is a good idea to purchase a high quality olive oil as it will add an element of flavor not otherwise found.)

Bring to a boil water in a tall sauce pan, add salt and spaghetti noodles.

Cook 8 strips of bacon in the Microwave till crispy ( if you don't have a bacon cooker - make a pad of paper towels and lay the bacon out on the toweling. Cover with a paper towel. Cook 1 minute - check the bacon. If it is not crispy cook for an additional 30 seconds and check. Repeat till bacon is crispy - let cool

Rinse the spinach , cut into strips with kitchen shears and set aside to drain
