Spinach with Bacon

Spinach is not real high on my list of favorite vegetables. Canning and freezing are just not good for it. Fresh spinach on the other hand can be great.

Spinach with Bacon
3 pieces bacon
1/2 cup sliced Onions
1 clove chopped garlic
lots of Spinach

Fry the bacon until crispy and then set aside to drain. Drain most of the bacon fat out of the pan(leave a table spoon or so), Turn heat to med low and add onions and garlic sauteing until the onions are translucent. Add the spinach (remember it cooks down alot)and salt to taste, continue sauteing until the spinach is wilted. top with crumbled bacon and Parmesan and serve!

Temper's Take:
Very good, though it took more salt then I expected. I think adding a splash of balsamic next time would be good too. (for a vegetarian option nuts substituted for the bacon could be quite nice)
