5 veggies from the garden pasta with smoked bacon!

Yesterday, I ended up with 5 different vegetables from my garden. I wanted to include them in my dinner pasta dish. This is what I made, doesn’t it look just fabulous/ clean/refreshing???


Let’s see what veggies that I used!

This is one of the best easy pasta dishes that I made in a long while! I had 183 gr podded fresh peas!! Ooh yes! There was a whole lot of podding,…:(

So, this is how I made it:

Recipe: For 4 persons


350 gr spelt penne, egg-free & dairy-free

2 fresh fat spring onions, cleaned, pad dry & cut up into rings (white & green parts!)

183 gr of fresh podded peas

62 gr fresh New-Zealand spinach leaves, chopped

62 gr of red Orach leaves ( red spinach), chopped

3 fat cloves of garlic , I used 2 small garlic bulbs

black pepper

Maldon sea salt

a fruity extra virgin olive oil

200 gr of smoked bacon pieces, dairy-free

hot pasta water


1. Cook your penne according to your packet instructions. My penne took me 7 minutes. After 3 minutes of cooking, add the fresh peas. My peas were thicker & needed about 3-4 minutes of cooking, to be just al dente. When pasta is al dente & peas are the way you like them drain well but keep a bit of the pasta water, to create kind of a sauce. Keep warm. Otherwise your complete pasta dish will be too dry! And we don’t want that, do we?

2. At the meantime, take a large non-stick pan & add few drizzles of that same fruity evoo & swirl it around the pan. When hot, add chopped up garlic, spring onions & fry for about 2 minutes, stirring often. Now, add smoked bacon & a few grins of black pepper. Stir now & then. When bacon is browned & fried on all sides, set aside. Add this mix to the pasta-pea mix. In the same pan, add chopped green & red spinach & fry for 1 minute or 2. Season with a pinch of sea salt & some grins of black pepper. Add this mix to the rest. Stir everything through. Now, add some of the leftover hot pasta water so that your mix isn’t too dry. Spoon into 2 lovely pasta plates & dive straight in, best enjoyed with a loved one! πŸ˜‰ MMM! A perfect lighter dinner filled with yumminess & goodness!

    1. It has a spicier flavor more pungent & we like to eat it stir fried in some good olive oil, with the NZ spinach too! πŸ™‚
