A delightful dish based on the Italian classic, with low-fat ingredients and healthy vegetables added.
oz uncooked fettuccine or spaghetti
slices bacon, cut into 1-inch pieces (1/4 lb)
clove garlic, chopped
cup freshly grated Parmesan cheese
teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
cups fresh baby spinach leaves
cup chopped plum (Roma) tomato (1 medium)
cup thinly sliced green onions (8 medium)
container (6 oz) Greek Fat Free plain yogurt
Cook and drain fettuccine as directed on package. In 10-inch skillet, cook bacon and garlic until crisp. Drain; remove from skillet, and set aside.
In small bowl, slightly beat egg; stir in milk, Parmesan cheese and pepper. Place cooked fettuccine in skillet. Add milk mixture, spinach, tomato, green onions and reserved garlic and bacon. Cover; cook about 5 minutes over medium-high heat, stirring occasionally, until spinach is tender.
Stir in yogurt; cook over low heat just until heated through.
Serve with additional freshly grated Parmesan cheese and freshly ground black pepper.
A Caesar salad, crusty French bread or a baguette, and gelato or ice cream for dessert would make this Italian menu complete.
