Creamy Spinach Noodle Toss

This was not a hit with the adults in the family but boy did the kids eat plenty. I thought it tasted a lot like a boxed noodle dish. I'm posting it mainly because it was a huge hit with the kids. They didn't even try picking out the spinach like they normally attempt to do. I'm thinking maybe adding some garlic flavor would have improved the dish. If your a fan of boxed noodles kits or have younger kids this recipe might be worth trying.

Creamy Spinach Noodle Toss
Simple and Delicious Jan/Feb 2010

1 1/2 cups uncooked egg noodles
2 bacon strips, diced
2 tsp. finely chopped onion
6 1/2 tsp. all purpose flour
3/4 tsp. salt free seasoning blend
1/8 tsp. salt
dash pepper
1 1/4 cups 2% milk
1 pkg. (9 oz) fresh baby spinach
3/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese

Cook noodles according to package directions. Meanwhile, in a large skillet, cook bacon and onion over medium heat until bacon is crisp. Using a slotted spoon, remove to paper towels to drain.

Stir the flour, seasoning blend, salt and pepper into drippings until blended, gradually add milk. Bring to a boil; cook and stir for 2 minutes or until thickened. Add spinach, cook and stir until spinach is wilted.

Drain noodles; transfer to a serving bowl. Add spinach mixture and cheese; toss to combine. Sprinkle with bacon mixture.
