I love easy one-skillet dinners!

This keto bacon Cacio e Pepe is a super simple and tasty Italian classic that means “cheese and pepper” in English. This keto bacon version is delicious – and replacing traditional noodles with spiralized veggies is both healthy and yummy. Enjoy!

If you enjoy cooking with spiralized veggies AND are looking for an awesome kitchen tool to prepare them with, check out one of my favorite kitchen gadgets, The Inspiralizer (I ordered this after cutting my finger on a smaller, handheld spiralizer, and I never went back). You can grab this gadget on Amazon or directly from the Inspiralized site.

The Inspiralizer makes four different types of noodle shapes, it’s very sturdy, and it’s also easy to clean. What a yummy way to prepare veggies even my kids will eat! It’s also fun to experiment with different veggies and sauces.

If you’re looking for something a bit less expensive, be sure to check out Collin’s Facebook live video where she shows off her favorite kitchen gadget for making veggie noodles.

Looking for more ideas? The Inspiralized Cookbook by Ali Maffucci has lots of beautifully written and easy to follow recipes and ideas, including this Bacon Cacio e Pepe recipe.
