Dairy Free Creamy Bacon Spinach Pasta
My hubby craving comfort food strikes again! In case you missed it, a couple of days ago he made up (with a little help) a dairy free sausage gravy. Biscuits and gravy are one of his favorite foods. Another favorite food? Creamy pastas. The issue of course is that neither of us can tolerate dairy. I haven’t eaten much dairy in almost a decade so for me I didn’t care for creamy pastas. He only made his discovery in 2017 so it’s been harder for him. And did I mention he’s a tad picky? And that he loved it? So I’m very excited to share this dairy free creamy bacon spinach pasta creation of his. It’s TASTY.
Recently I found dairy free “cheeze” shreds. A few brands make them, but the one that is easiest for us to find is by Go Veggie. Our local store sells them for $3.99 per container which is by far the best price I’ve found. Now please don’t mistake me, I don’t think these shreds are healthy. Similar to my thoughts on the daiya mac and cheeze (click here to read about that, it’s also dairy free and delicious!), this is a comfort food. It just happens to be a delicious comfort food that doesn’t cause us nasty side effects.
Travis really outdid himself on this. I was also able to get back a bit of cash on Ibotta. I used to roll my eyes about that app (and similar ones like Ebates) but I have gotten $35 cash back on purcahses we were going to make anyways. It really has been worth the few seconds to click for the offers. My tip to avoid overspending is to look for offers AFTER you shop. If you’re interested (it’s free), click here to get the $10 bonus offer.
Also, while I use my bone broth, regular store bought broth will work just fine. We used to stock up on chicken stock at Sam’s Club before I began making it in our Instant Pot . If you have an Instant Pot though and haven’t made bone broth, you need to get on that. It will save you money and the flavor is much deeper than the store bought kind. Recipes like this Dairy Free Creamy Bacon Spinach Pasta really highlight this because of the additional fat content in the bone broth. It’s excellent. Click here for my bone broth recipe! It’s SO easy!
