Rocket adds a wonderful peppery hotness to this pasta dish.

  • 500 grams fresh spinach
  • 2-3 tblsp olive oil
  • salt and pepper to season

  • 1-2 tsp minced garlic
  • 200 grams blue cheese
  • ½–1 cup cream
  • freshly ground black pepper

  1. Tear any tough stems from the rocket and spinach. Wash and shake dry. Toss the leaves well with olive oil and season with salt and pepper.
  2. Heat a frying pan until very hot. Add the leaves a handful at a time and cook quickly until they have browned a little and wilted. Set aside.
  3. Add the bacon or pancetta to the pan and cook until crisp. Add the garlic to the pan and cook a further minute. Stir in the crumbled blue cheese and cream. Season the sauce.
