Spinach and White Bean Pasta

Here's one from Paula Deen that I actually want to try...on the healthy side!  :)  Just a little bacon...

Spinach and White Bean Penne
1 (12-oz) box whole-wheat pasta
4 slices bacon1 cup chopped onion2 cloves garlic, minced1 (15-oz) can white beans, drained and rinsed3 cups fresh baby spinach1 and 1/2 teaspoons orange zest
1. Cook pasta according to package directions.  Drain.  In a large skillet, cook bacon 6 minutes over medium heat or until crisp.  Remove from pan, and crumble.  Discard all but 2 tablespoons drippings in pan.  Add onion and garlic to drippings in pan, and sauté over medium-high heat 5 minutes or until tender.
2. In a large bowl, combine pasta, crumbled bacon, onion mixture, beans, spinach, and orange zest.  Serve immediately.
