Pasta recipes are some of my very favorites to create!  I developed a super simple whole wheat pasta dish that is packed with my family’s favorite ingredients. I took everyone’s favorite BLT and made it into a fun pasta….used spinach for the “L” You could also use arugula or kale. All you need is about 30 minutes for this dinner, hope you enjoy!

  • 4 cups cherry or grape tomatoes
  • 2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
  • 1/4 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • 1 pound whole wheat fettucini or spaghetti noodles
  • 3 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 pound bacon cooked and crumbled (I used ready made bacon that just needs microwaved)
  • 4 cups thinly sliced baby spinach leaves
  • 1 cup shredded parmesan cheese
  • 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper


  • Place cherry tomatoes onto a large baking sheet lined with a silpat liner or parchment paper. Drizzle with olive oil and sprinkle with salt and pepper. Bake at 375 for 10-12 minutes, until tomatoes collapse. Remove and set aside.
  • Cook pasta according to package directions. Drain. Place oil into large rimmed skillet over medium heat. Toss in cooked pasta then stir in bacon crumbles, baby spinach, parmesan cheese, salt and pepper. Toss gently and cook until heated through. Gently toss in roasted tomatoes. Add additional olive oil as desired. Serve warm.

    What a simple, but totally delicious meal! This is why I love you Jenny!

  14. Tom @ Raise Your Garden

    Well, my wife and I have a deal. She does all the cooking. I now do most of the grocery shopping to take that off her plate. As a teacher, I was home with the kids for Christmas break and now realize how hard her job is a a SAHM! It’s tougher than I thought. I was actually happy to go back to work today. I’m still going to ask her to make this because it looks so good, but I’ll bring the groceries home for her.

    This does look so good and quick too! I have roasted tomatoes and they are fabulous! Thank you for this fresh idea when the January weather has me in the doldrums. This dish reminds me of spring!

  16. Jessica @ Citrus Blossom Bliss

    I’m always looking for simple (and delicious!) new dinner recipes to try, and this one looks fantastic! Roasting the cherry tomatoes sounds like a really simple way to amp up the flavors a little bit, I will definitely have to try this out for dinner soon. Pinned!
