Get your dark green and yellow veggies now. Squash and spinach pair for a skillet-easy side.

Updated January 30, 2006

Ingredients

  • 4
    slices bacon, cut into 1-inch pieces
  • 1
    medium onion, chopped (1/2 cup)
  • 6
    cups 1/2-inch pieces peeled butternut squash (2 small)
  • 1/2
    teaspoon chopped fresh or 1/8 teaspoon dried thyme leaves
  • 1/8
    teaspoon pepper
  • 3
    cups firmly packed baby spinach leaves

Steps

  • 1
    In 12-inch skillet, cook bacon over medium-low heat, stirring occasionally, until crisp. Stir in onion. Cook about 2 minutes, stirring occasionally, until onion is crisp-tender.
  • 2
    Stir in squash, thyme and pepper. Cover and cook 8 to 10 minutes, stirring occasionally, until squash is tender. Stir in spinach just until wilted.

  • There's no need to chop the onion yourself. Use 1/2 cup frozen chopped onion instead, and you don't have to thaw it first.
  • For 12 servings, use 6 slices bacon, 2/3 cup chopped onion, 9 cups squash, 3/4 teaspoon fresh or 1/4 teaspoon dried thyme leaves, 1/4 teaspoon pepper and 4 1/2 cups spinach leaves. Prepare in Dutch oven.
