This is a recipe I worked out based on the tastes I could put together. It was a dish I had at a restaurant.

What you'll need:
1 Medium onion finely chopped
1/2 teaspoon Crushed garlic
1 Bunch of fresh spinege.
120g Bacon
30ml Butter
15ml Flour
250ml Thickened Cream
60ml Parmesan Cheese
Salt & Pepper to taste
Preferred pasta

1. Cook the pasta of your choice.
1. Sauté onions till see-through.
2. Add garlic.
3. Boil spinege till par cooked.
4. add to onions and garlic and fry slightly.
5. In a new sauce pan melt butter
6. Mix in flour to make a paste.
7. Remove from heat. Turn stove down to a simmering temperature.
8. Add a little of the thickened cream to the paste at a time until all the cream is mixed in.
9. Return to the stove and allow the sauce to heat and thicken a little and then add the parmesan cheese, salt and pepper to taste.
10. Once the cheese is melted into the sauce add the onion, garlic and spinege to the sauce and remove from heat.
11. You can serve the pasta and sauce mixed together or serve the sauce as a topping.
