Bring a large pot of water to a boil. Add ravioli and salt. Cook according to package directions.

Meanwhile, cook bacon in a heavy skillet over moderate heat. Chop coarsely.

Add olive oil to the skillet to make 3 tablespoons fat.

Add garlic and red pepper.

Cook over medium heat until garlic is golden.

Add the spinach, cooking until wilted and/or thawed.

Evaporate juices, add bacon, and keep warm.

Drain ravioli and toss with spinach mixture; sprinkle with cheese. Serves 4.
