Spinach & Chestnut Pasta

A real winter warmer!
Crisp up some bacon (cut into strips), then add sliced garlic, onion, chilli to the pan. Then add roasted (or boiled), peeled chestnuts (in chunks). Then add washed spinach, cut into strips. Sauté for a few minutes. Season. Add freshly-made and cooked pasta. I tend to sprinkle some fresh lemon juice over the pasta just before serving. Enjoy!

Wow, lovely background and the food looks good too.
Chestnuts are really great added to pasta, rice dishes and even sweets and soups.

It does look nice. Ive been binging on chestnuts of late as they arrive in our Hilbarn box reasonably regularly. My favourite way to eat them (so far!) is in a chicken, spinach and paremsan risotto.

Maggie, yes, chestnuts are incredibly versatile! :)

Jen, sounds great, too! We still have a big bag here, and might just attempt that risotto.

Another great way to eat them is to just toss them in a little butter and chilli (and garlic), season, then eat as snack.
