For the next little while I’m going to try and bring you guys some of my favourite easy weeknight meals.
This meal comes care of reader Margo. We got in touch originally through a cookbook giveaway on my blog a while back. When she sent me her address, I realized we used to live on the same street. Then she realized we had actually chatted before. All of a sudden we are swapping nightmare stories of sleep deprivation and dealing with two kids…. Motherhood. It definitely has a way of bringing people together.
I admit I made a few changes to her original recipe. I doubled the bacon.
I fried the zucchini instead of cooking it with the pasta. I may have actually cooked it in the bacon fat. But really, this makes a pretty big batch and even though I thought I might regret using an entire pack of bacon (12 pieces) I did not.
I made the meal while my trusty side-kick looked on.
Even Mr. NONONONONONONONO I WAN’T PIZZA liked it.
If you want to make it a bit healthier hold back on the amount of bacon and cook the zucchini during the last 2 minutes of the pasta cooking time. It really was a quick, easy, one bowl recipe. Thanks Margo!
