    This is the ultimate comfort food on a rainy night - and quick to prepare. Add the crushed chillies if you want a bit of spice.

    This is such a flavourful, nutty, fresh tasting pasta salad. I always serve it at my parties. I think it's the combination of fresh spinach, the crispy bacon and the pine nuts that make it so good.
