Nice idea, but I personally think the end result was a little too wet. I would recommend adding the tomatoes once the mushrooms have been cooked for a bit and reducing the sauce down, before adding the spinach and then combining with the spaghetti/egg mixture. Otherwise, this is a great way to use any old veggies. We're vegetarian, so I simply omitted the bacon to no great detriment. I added some chopped flat leaf parsley to the mixture to help lift the whole dish.

Worked very well with fresh vegies from our garden. Substituted shelled broad beans for the peas. Magnificent. Also make your own pasta to accompany.
