I created this site to share with you all of our delicious recipes. I have compiled many family recipes, modern recipes, and so much more. My love for cooking and baking inspired me to start my own blog and my own youtube channel so I can share with you all things cooking and baking.
When it comes to pasta…. It is the most efficient way to make a meal. This recipe is one that I make all of the time during the spring and summer months because it is so easy to make and delicious. You can add grilled chicken or steak strips to make it more substantial. I have done both and it turns out amazing every time.
Salt and pepper 4 strips bacon – diced 1 large or 2 small tomatoes ( you can also use cherry tomatoes) 1 tsp sugar 1/2 onion- diced 1/2 cup chicken broth 1 tsp white wine vinegar 1/4 tsp red pepper flakes 1 lb spaghetti pasta 1 cup spinach leaves 1/2 tsp parsley
Bring a large pot of water to a boil and add a bit of salt to season the pasta.
In a large skillet over medium heat at the bacon and cook until desired crispness. Remove and set aside to drain.
Add the past to the water when the water starts to boil and stir.
In the skillet add the onion and cook until tender. About 5 minutes. Add the tomatoes and cook another 5 minutes or until the tomatoes are tender.
Add the sugar, salt, and pepper. cook for 2 minutes. Add the white wine vinegar and stir to combine. Let the mixture reduce down for about 3 minutes. Add the broth and parsley. Let the broth cook for 5 minutes and reduce by half.
When the pasta is al dente add the pasta to the mixture and toss to coat. Add the spinach to the pasta and toss to help the spinach wilt.
Add the bacon back to the pasta and toss. Check for seasoning and adjust to your liking.
Thank you so much for stopping by. Let me tell you a little bit about me. I am a mom of two, a stepmom of 1, two wild and silly pups, and I have the best husband in the world. I also have a love of cooking and baking. I am always in the kitchen finding new recipes to try, recreating old family recipes, and reminiscing about the old ways. I am vintage at heart and love all things old and cast iron. I love spending time with the family and pups and just going where life takes us.
I created my blog a few years ago with my youtube channel because I thought that If I shared a recipe, then people just might like to see just how the recipe is put together. I share all of my family recipes along with today's recipes. Whether it is old-fashioned recipes, sourdough, einkorn, desserts, sheet pan meals, or even crockpot meals, they are all absolutely delicious.
I spend hours, if not days, creating and dabbling with recipes to make sure they are the best for you and your family. All of my recipes are family tested and family-approved before they are ever posted to my blog or youtube channel.
Every now and again I will share some behind-the-scenes fun and chaos of our creations and family adventures. I hope you all stick around and join us here at The Southern Rustic and see what we cook up in my kitchen. You can find all of my social media information in the Contact/Donate OR the Social Media Accounts tab on my home page. There I have listed my Instagram pages, YouTube channel, Email, and other information so you can easily find everything in one place.
I hope that you all have a wonderful, wonderful day and I will see you soon.
