Ingredients

  1. Check 1 pound ravioli (fresh or frozen)
  2. Check 6 slices bacon
  3. Check 2 tablespoons olive oil
  4. Check 2 cloves garlic, sliced
  5. Check 2 bunches fresh spinach, thick stems removed (about 8 cups)
  6. Check kosher salt and black pepper
  7. Check 1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice

Directions

  1. Cook the ravioli according to the package directions. Drain and divide among bowls.
  2. Meanwhile, cook the bacon in a skillet over medium-high heat until crisp, 6 to 8 minutes; transfer to a paper towel–lined plate. Crumble.
  3. Wipe out the skillet and heat the oil over medium heat. Add the garlic and cook, stirring occasionally, until golden, 1 to 2 minutes. Add the spinach, 1/2 teaspoon salt, and 1/4 teaspoon pepper. Cook, tossing, until just wilted, 1 to 2 minutes.
  4. Stir the bacon and lemon juice into the spinach. Spoon the mixture over the ravioli.
