Method

Step 1

Preparation: Boil the kettle. Prepare all ingredients as indicated above.

Step 2

Lemon: Using the fine side of a box grater, grate the peel to create zest. Cut in half and juice.

Step 3

Fusilli: Place a pot on medium-high heat and add boiling water. When the water is at a rolling boil, add the fusilli pasta and cook for 12 minutes. You want it al dente, which is slightly chewy and translucent. Drain in a colander and rinse with cold water. Drizzle with a little olive oil to keep the pasta from sticking together.

Step 4

Dressing: Mix together Dijon mustard, lemon zest and juice, mayonnaise, Worcestershire sauce and HALF the hard cheese. Season with salt and pepper. Set aside.

Step 5

Bacon bits: Place a pan on medium-high heat with a drizzle of olive oil. When hot, add the bacon and fry for 7-9 minutes until brown and crispy.

Step 6

Fusilli mix: Mix the fusilli with the tomatoes and garlic, mix through the dressing and add the bacon bits.

Step 7

Serve the fusilli mix with the baby spinach and sprinkle with the REST of the hard cheese.
