Ingredients

    1 pound Dreamfield Rotini
    1 pound bacon
    1 large onion, chopped
    6 cloves garlic, minced
    2 T red wine
    24-26 oz jar spaghetti sauce
    3/4 c half-and-half
    1 c blue cheese crumbles
    1/2 t sugar
    salt & pepper to taste
    1 cup baby spinach leaves

Directions

Cook pasta according to package directions and drain. Keep warm.

Chop up and saute the bacon in a deep skillet over medium-high heat. Once the bacon starts getting brown, add the onion and continue to saute until onion is softened & bacon is cooked. Remove grease (I use a turkey baster).

Deglaze the pan with wine, scraping up any brown bits. Then add the spaghetti sauce. Cover and simmer on medium-low for 10-15 minutes.

Add the sugar, half-and-half, blue cheese, salt and pepper to taste. Adjust seasonings as needed and combine well. Add cooked pasta to sauce. At the last minute, toss in the spinach, combine, and serve.
