Our favorite summer supper, "bacon pasta"~THM friendly!

This is a staple in our home lately. 
I literally threw some our favorite ingredients in with some pasta one night and wha lah our favorite pasta supper was born. It is wonderful for hot summer days because it quick and you don't need to turn on the oven.

My family has named it "bacon pasta." 
I think it deserves a fancy title (because its soooo yummy) but we aren't fancy people. 

So, "bacon pasta" it is.

This recipe made with Dreamfields pasta is THM friendly! An S meal due to the fat of the bacon. Even I have a hard time believing this is on plan, because it is amazing! 

I cooked my bacon (about 6 pieces cut in small strips) till it was crispy. Then drained the fat leaving about a tablespoon in the pan. Then I sauteed a zucchini squash, a large handful of cherry tomatoes (halved), and three cloves of garlic. We like it garlicky! No vampires at my house, ha!

Saute till soft.

Cook a box of noodles while you saute.

Just before you drain, reserve a 1/4 cup of salty pasta water and set to the side.

 Because you remembered to salt the water right? Good!

The pasta water will make a creamy sauce mixed with the cheese and pasta. 

Thanks Rachel Ray for teaching me this!

If you haven't tried this pasta please give it a go! It is unlike any low carb pasta I have ever tried. My family actually prefers this over regular pasta! And that says allot!!
I found it at Safeway.

 Add your pasta to the veggies along with a cup of parm, chopped fresh basil and the pasta water. 

Stir and serve!

This feeds our family of four with leftovers.

I hope you all love it just as much as we do!

Blessings, Nicole
