Method

Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil.

Add spaghetti and cook until just tender, about 12 minutes.

Drain, reserving 1/2 cup of the cooking water.

Meanwhile, heat a large skillet over medium-high heat.

Add bread crumbs and cook, stirring, until lightly toasted, 3 to 4 minutes.

Transfer to a plate.

Wipe out the skillet, add oil and return the skillet to medium-high heat.

Add mushrooms, garlic, salt and pepper and cook, stirring occasionally, until mushrooms are tender and browned, about 8 minutes.

Add bacon and wine.

Cook 2 minutes.

Add spinach, stirring until it is wilted.

Add pasta and half of the cheese to the skillet and remove from the heat.

Stir until combined; add some of the reserved pasta water if pasta seems dry.

Transfer to a bowl or platter, sprinkle with bread crumbs and top with remaining cheese.
