In a skillet, met butter over moderate heat and cook the spinach mixture, stirring for 1-2 minutes, or until greens are wilted. Stir in the Pernod, anchovy paste, cayenne, and salt and pepper to taste. Chill the mixture, covered, for 1 hour. In another skillet, cook bacon over moderate heat until crisp.
