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!

Hip Tips: 

  • The best way to make squash and zucchini noodles is by using a spiralizer, and I think it’s fun to do! There’s lots of spiralizers on Amazon to choose from if you don’t have one. We love this highly-rated OXO spiralizer, as it’s easy to use right out of the box, and cleans up easily.
  • In a pinch, look for bags of zucchini that are already spiralized, at your grocery store!
  • Salt brings out moisture in squash and zucchini when cooking, so add a touch of salt if desired, after cooking to avoid soggy texture.
