Pancetta, Onion and Spinach Pasta

Pancetta, onion and spinach pasta

This was my dinner on Saturday night. There was no recipe and no plan but it was so good. Sometimes the meals you throw together end up tasting the best and I was so surprised by how good this tasted.

I cooked some smoked pancetta and two red onions until the onions were very soft and caramelised, almost a sauce, added the cooked pasta and then stirred through some soft goats cheese and a tiny bit of the pasta water (I always put a small cup in the sink when I drain the pasta, so I have some if I need it!). Once that was all mixed up, I added a massive handful of fresh spinach and stirred it through.

I wasn’t expecting too much of it but it exactly hit the spot. It was also good the next day when I threw it in an oven dish and baked to warm through!

So there you have it, thrown together dinner that I really enjoyed! Anyone else have a dinner that surpassed expectations this weekend?
