In a skillet over medium-high heat, cook spinach with 1 tsp. water until wilted, 30 seconds. Transfer to a colander; squeeze out water and finely chop. Wipe out skillet. Cook bacon until crisp; finely chop.

Preheat oven to 400°. In a bowl, whisk together all-purpose flour, baking powder, salt, pepper and baking soda. With a pastry cutter, cut chilled butter into flour mixture. Stir in spinach, bacon and grated Parmesan, then milk until just incorporated.
