Quick, Easy, Kind of healthy meal.

This isn't the sort of blog post that I thought I would be doing when I started my blog, however, I am! I got inspiration for this whilst doing my uni work (which im drowning in a the moment because of deadlines). At the moment Im writing a feature for a magazine about "healthy eating on a budget" as most of us girls are looking forward to our holidays and want our bikini body back whilst saving so we have lots of spending money so the last thing we want to spend money on is food!

The ingredients you will need are these!
-Bacon ( 4/5 rashers depending on how meaty you want it to be make sure you cut it into small pieces)
- Mushrooms (4/5 sliced mushrooms again depending on how much you want)
- A handful of spinach
- Any pasta of your choice I used spaghetti
- Linguini
- Can or tin of tomatos
- 2 cloves of garlic
- Salt & Pepper to season.

First of all heat up some oil in a pan,  then add the garlic and bacon together cook until its brown. Whilst the bacon is cooking heat some water in a saucepan for the pasta, when the water is boiling add the pasta and leave it to cook.

Once the bacon has browned add the mushrooms and mix them in so they get the flavor of the garlic. once cooked add the spinach and let that cook then add the tin/carton of chopped tomatos and season with salt & pepper, if you like a bit of a kick to it add some chilli or crushed chillis to it.

Once the pasta is cooked add it to the sauce and mix it all in.  & you should end up with something like this...

It isn't the most attractive looking dishes which has ever been made, but it tastes really good and its rediculously easy to make and altogeher costs around £6/7 and theres bound to be some left over to have the next day for lunch or dinner! Give it a go and let me know what you think!
