Ingredients

  • 6 oz (175 g) uncooked fettuccine or spaghetti
  • 4 slices bacon, cut into 1-inch (2.5 cm pieces) (1/4 lb/125 g)
  • 1 clove garlic, chopped
  • 1 egg
  • 3/4 cup (175 mL) milk
  • 3/4 cup (175 mL) freshly grated Parmesan cheese
  • 1/4 tsp (1 mL) freshly ground black pepper
  • 4 cups (1 L) fresh baby spinach leaves
  • 3/4 cup (175 mL) chopped plum (Roma) tomato (1 medium)
  • 1/2 cup (125 mL) thinly sliced green onions (8 medium)
  • 3/4 cup (175 mL) Yoplait® Source or Creamy plain yogurt

Steps

  • 1
    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.
  • 2
    In small bowl, slightly beat egg. Beat in milk, Parmesan cheese and pepper. Place cooked fettuccine in skillet. Add milk mixture, spinach, tomato and green onions. Cover; cook about 5 minutes over medium-high heat, stirring occasionally, until spinach is tender.
  • 3
    Stir in yogurt; cook over low heat just until heated through.

  • Make It Your Way: Serve with additional freshly grated Parmesan cheese and freshly ground black pepper.
  • Serving Suggestion: A Caesar salad, crusty French bread or a baguette, and gelato or ice cream for dessert would make this Italian menu complete.
