Zucchini and Olive Oil Pasta!!
This Gluten Free Zucchini and Olive Oil Pasta uses ingredients that are in your pantry and is easy to make and tastes delicious!
  • 1 packet of pasta cooked and drained as per instructions on the pack. (I use a gluten free penne pasta)
  • 2 zucchinis - grated
  • ½ onion-chopped or grated
  • 250 grams of bacon pieces
  • 1 teaspoon of butter
  • ½ lemon-diced
  • handful or two of parmesan cheese
  • ½ teaspoon of minced garlic
  • ¼ cup of extra virgin Olive Oil ( ...plus a few extra glugs... :-) )
  1. Simply boil the pasta in a saucepan with a sprinkling of salt, drain and place back into the saucepan you cooked it in, to keep it warm.
  2. While the pasta is cooking, in another saucepan add the butter, olive oil, zucchini, garlic, onion, lemon and bacon.
  3. Cook till the zucchini and onion becomes soft. (It may look like there is a lot of olive oil but don't worry because you need this to coat all the pasta pieces.)
  4. When it is cooked and the flavours have infused into the olive oil, simply mix the mixture into the pasta and stir to combine.
  5. Add in the parmesan cheese and stir.
