Have you ever looked at what is in foods these days? Have you ever wondered why life has gotten so crazy that we all rely on processed "quick" foods and fast foods? Well I have had my eyes opened recently when we started to realize our oldest child could be ADD. I decided to clean up our diets and turn out lives around. I am a woman, married to a wonderful man who supports everything I do. We have 3 wonderful children who keep us on our toes and every day when I pick them up from school the first things out of their mouths is "mommy what's for dinner" so here it is...

What's for dinner 11/01/10: Linguine with Garlic Sauce & Cream Corn

Tonight's Feingold friendly meal was very good and complements of Taste of Home.  I can tell you I will be making this again.  This is a nice combo of crunchy, salty & creamy...Linguine with garlic cream sauce YUMMY!!!



Linguine with Garlic Sauce Recipe

Serves 4-6


  • 12 ounces uncooked linguine
  • 1/2 pound sliced bacon, diced
  • 5 cups fresh baby spinach
  • 1/2 cup chopped onion
  • 1/2 teaspoon minced garlic
  • 1-1/4 cups 2% milk
  • 1 package (8 ounces) cream cheese, cubed
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 1/2 cup pine nuts, toasted (I used walnuts because pine nuts are expensive)


  • Cook linguine according to package directions. Meanwhile, in a large skillet, cook bacon over medium heat until crisp. Using a slotted spoon, remove to paper towels; drain, reserving 1 tablespoon drippings.
  • In the drippings, saute spinach and onion until spinach is wilted and onion is tender. Add garlic; cook 1 minute longer. Add the milk, cream cheese, butter, salt, nutmeg and pepper; stir until smooth. Stir in pine nuts and bacon; heat through. Drain pasta; toss with sauce.

VERDICT: This was really good, I have been asked to make this again.  As I mentioned I used walnuts because I had it on hand and pine nuts are not in my budget at about $20 a pound.  The sauce was so creamy and a good combo with the nuts, bacon & cream.
