Zucchini and Bacon Pasta (5)

Ready in 25 minutes

Light tasting even with all that bacon

"This literally couldn't be easier. I add whatever veg is in the fridge. I've made it with broccoli, peas and this evening I even threw in a bit of cauliflower I wanted to use up. I also add a bit of oregano or chilli sometimes just to mix it up. My kids love it and it's so easy!"

Very good dish. I am always on the lookout for put together meals without using box mixes which contain a lot of salt/sodium. This is a great dish and I'm sure I'll be making it often and using other veggies as others have mentioned. Very delicious, quick and easy.

Very easy and tasty. I think next time I make it I'll grab some other garden fresh vegs to throw it in also.
