Dinner: Toasted Penne

Tonight's Cooking Light dinner was the toasted penne with spinach and bacon from the Jan./Feb.2014 issue. I used whole wheat pasta, so the penne did not get as soft and creamy as the recipe implied it would. However, it was still a tasty dish, and I will make it again with semolina pasta to see if that gives the dish the creamy texture it should have.The applewood smoked bacon was delicious. I usually serve turkey or tofu bacon, and real bacon hasn't been in this house in years. Decadent..

I'm not sure if this experiment is successfully helping me lose weight, but it certainly has me eating healthier meals I cook myself, and that's a good thing.
