Instructions
1

Prep: Wash and dry all produce. Bring a medium pot of salted water to a boil. Cut the bacon into 1/2-inch cubes. Cut the zucchini into 1/2-inch cubes. Mince or grate the garlic. Finely chop the parsley.

2

Cook the pasta: Add the fusilli to the boiling water. Cook until tender, 9-10 min.

3

Crisp the bacon: Meanwhile, heat a large non-stick pan over medium-high heat. Add a drizzle of oil, then the bacon. Cook, stirring occasionally, until the bacon edges are crispy, 6-7 min. Transfer to a paper towel-lined plate.

4

Cook the zucchini: Add the zucchini to the same pan. Cook, stirring occasionally, until golden-brown and tender, 3-4 min. Transfer to the same plate as the bacon.

5

Toast the garlic: Reduce the heat to medium-low. Add another drizzle of oil to the pan, then the garlic and as much chili flakes as you like. Cook, stirring often, until the garlic just starts to turn golden, 2-3 min. (TIP: Keep your eye on the garlic so it doesn't burn!)

6

Assemble the pasta: Drain the pasta, then stir into the garlic-oil mixture. Add the zucchini, bacon, Parmesan and parsley. Stir to combine.

7

Finish and serve: Divide the pasta between bowls. Enjoy!
