Bacon and Spinach Pasta with Parmesan

Dried Beef and Spinach Pasta with Parmesan is a quick and flavorful weeknight dinner that only requires a few ingredients.


4oz Family Size Knauss Dried Beef, diced
1 small onion, diced
1 tbsp. butter
10 oz elbow or rotini pasta
10 oz Sharp White Cheddar Cheese
2 cups fresh spinach
2 tablespoons of Parmesan Cheese

Cut the Knauss dried beef into bite sized pieces and chop one small onion. Sauté dried beef with a pat of butter and diced onion in a skillet until they are soft and transparent. Give the skillet a stir to loosen the pasta from the bottom every few minutes or so, replacing the lid quickly each time. After 10 minutes the pasta should be tender.

Cook pasta and drain. Add Sharp White Cheddar cheese and slowly stir until melted though. Add the sautéed dried beef and onion and slowly fold into pasta mixture.

Add the fresh spinach to the skillet and stir until it has wilted into the pasta. Transfer pasta mixture to serving bowl and sprinkle the Parmesan over top and serve.





3 ozs. Knauss dried beef (6 slices)
6 chicken breasts, boned and skinned
