By Sophies Foodie

The first 2 green courgettes turned into a lovely pasta dinner!

A few days ago, I harvested the first 2 green courgettes called black beauty! Ooh yes! So, I needed to use them up & I invented this lovely easy peasy pasta dinner! Looks great right?

Ready to devour!

Ready to devour!

If you want to make it completely gluten-free, use Gluten-free bacon & GF pasta!

If you want to make it completely vegan, use vegan tempeh bacon!

Recipe: For 3 persons


300 gr spelt penne

1 + 1/2 green courgette, cleaned, cut up into smaller chunks, see photo above

1/2 cup (78 gr) red bell pepper, deseeded & white bits removed, cut up into smaller chunks

2 fat cloves of garlic, peeled & finely chopped

12 yellow cherry tomatoes, left whole

black pepper

pink salt

a fruity extra virgin olive oil

200 gr of smoked bacon pieces

1/2 teaspoon dried thyme

to serve: grated Gruyère cheese


  1. Cook your pasta according to your packet instructions. Drain well & set aside.
  2. At the same time, heat up & a large non-stick pan & at a few drizzles of a fruity extra virgin olive oil. When hot, add chopped garlic, red bell pepper pieces & chopped courgette. Stir often & fry for about 5-10 minutes. Season with dried thyme, black pepper & pink salt. Check if the veggies are cooked through & browned, soft at all sides. When nearly done, add yellow cherry tomatoes to the hot pan & fry until they are super hot & ready. Spoon all of the veggies into the pot with hot pasta or remove from the hot pan. Now, fry your smoked bacon pieces into that same pan but add a few drizzles of that same fruity oil first. heat up & fry on high heat until browned & cooked through. Taste. Adjust seasoning to your liking. I added about 10 grins of black pepper & about 8 grins of pink salt extra. It all has to be fab in the mouth!
  3. Plate up, like photo above or mix bacon through veggie-pasta mix & serve at once. This is also nice topped with freshly grated Gruyère cheese,….yum yum! Stay Tuned! If you liked this post & want more of them, join 1,714 email followers to get my new cool email newsletters!
