shrimp, corn and bacon zucchini fettuccine

main dishes

Spiralized zucchini has become one of our new best friends. You can spiralize your own. We love this spiralizer by OXO. It is super easy to use and even easier to clean (MAJOR BONUS!) It is manually operated and requires little effort yet makes the most beautiful spirals! You can also buy spiralized zucchini fresh or frozen if you do not want to spiralize your own. Store-bought spiralized is a great option, especially if you are only cooking for a couple of people. Now, we need to be honest, we have had many nay-sayers to trying spiralized zucchini. But, with a little coaxing we have gotten people to try it and, once they do, they are sold! It is a refreshing, healthy change from pasta. You might want to give it a try! This recipe is so easy and a great introduction to spiralized zucchini. It is also wonderful to serve to company. The shrimp and salty bacon go so well with the zucchini, and be sure to sprinkle lots of fresh basil and freshly grated parmesan on before serving. Enjoy!!
