Bacon Zucchini Noodles with Basil

  • Yield: 4 servings 1x


  • 4 zucchini
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 6 slices Canadian bacon (trimmed of all fat and thinly sliced)
  • 1 clove garlic (crushed)
  • 3/4 cup sun-dried tomatoes in olive oil (drained and sliced into strips)
  • 1 small red chile (finely chopped)
  • 1 tablespoon pine nuts
  • A handful of fresh basil (thinly shredded)


  1. Make your spaghetti by either grating the zucchini at an angle on the largest side of a cheese grater or using a hand-held julienne peeler or spiralizer.
  2. Place 1 tablespoon olive oil in a large nonstick frying pan over high heat and stir-fry the zucchini for 3 minutes. Add the bacon to the pan and sauté for a few minutes until cooked. Reduce the heat to medium.
  3. Add the garlic, sun-dried tomatoes, chile, pine nuts, and the remaining olive oil to the pan. Toss for a few minutes, then take off the heat.
  4. Divide the spaghetti between four bowls, sprinkle with the basil, and serve immediately.
