Prep: Wash and dry all produce. Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil. Cut the bacon into 1/2-inch pieces.


Cook the bacon: Heat a large non-stick pan over medium-high heat. Add a drizzle of oil, then the bacon. Cook until crispy on the edges, 5-6 min.


Cook the pasta: Meanwhile, add the pasta to the boiling water. Cook until tender, 9-10 min.


Cook the broccoli: Transfer the bacon to a paper towel-lined plate. Discard all but 1 tbsp fat (double for 4 people) from the pan. Increase the heat to medium-high heat. Add the onions and cook, stirring occasionally, until softened, 4-5 min. Add the broccoli. Cook, stirring occasionally, until tender, 4-5 min.


When the pasta is done cooking, reserve 1/2 cup pasta water (double for 4 people). Drain the pasta.


Stir the spinach, ricotta, cream cheese, bacon, pasta and reserved pasta water into the broccoli mixture. Stir until the spinach wilts, 1-2 min. Season with salt and pepper.


Finish and serve: Divide the creamy bacon penne between bowls and enjoy!

DID YOU KNOW? Ricotta is a light cheese made from the whey (milk protein) that is left over from the production of harder cheeses. Its name – ricotta – literally means "re-cooked" in Italian
