Cheesy Pasta With Zucchini And Bacon
"A simple, indulgent, cheesy pasta with zucchini and crispy bacon is a weeknight dinner that the whole family can agree on. It's basically grown-up mac and cheese! The creamy white cheddar pasta is delicious alongside a simple green salad, a loaf of crusty Dutch oven bread, or a pan of sweet cornbread. Everyone loves the classic comfort food, mac and cheese, but sometimes we want to dress it up with just a few extra ingredients. That's where this super cheesy pasta comes in! It's creamy and rich, with a complex variety of flavors and textures. You can use one cheese (like white cheddar), or a combination of good melting cheeses like cheddar, Gruyere, Monterey Jack, Colby, and smoked Gouda. Swap out the zucchini for peas or broccoli, or omit the bacon for a vegetarian dish. Garnish with fresh herbs, add grated fresh lemon zest, or a sprinkling of extra Parmesan cheese. It's a delicious, quick, and easy dinner that will please even your pickiest little eaters!"
