Sauteed Spinach with Bacon & Mustard

Bacon & spinach is a pretty old idea.  To make it skinnier?  Even better.  This is very similar to something my grandparents made us growing up. Yum!

Recipe from Better Homes & Gardens.
Yields 4 servings.
135 calories per serving.

4 slices bacon, cut into 1 inch pieces
2 bags pre-washed spinach
1 tbsp margarine
1 tbsp dijon mustard
1/4 tsp crushed red pepper

In a large skillet, cook bacon over medium heat until crisp.
Remove bacon & put on a paper towel to drain reserving drippings.

Gradually add spinach to skillet, stirring frequently with metal tongs.
Cook 2 to 3 minutes until just wilted.
Remove spinach from pan & drain.

In the same skillet, melt margarine over medium heat.
