Ingredients:
5 rashers short cut bacon
1 cup (uncooked) arborio rice
1 spring onion
1 large garlic clove
1 tin cream of mushroom soup
3 tsp skim milk powder
3 cubes or 1/2 cup chopped spinach
Handful of grated cheese (optional)

Method:
In a dry frypan, fry the bacon until any fat as turned translucent, add the onion, garlic and rice. Allow that to heat for about 30seconds to a minute (don’t let the rice burn), and then add about 1 cup boiling water. Stirring well. Mix the milk powder with about 1/2 cup of boiling water, and add that to the pan. Stir until that liquid has been soaked up, then add the tin of mushroom soup. Keep stirring and adding more water as needed, as the rice mixture starts to soak up the liquids. When it is almost ready – when the rice is just a little firm, remove from heat and put a lid on the saucepan and leave stand for 5 minutes before serving and the risotto should have finished cooking in the residual heat.
