We love pasta in this house so I'm always on the lookout for new recipes to try. This is the perfect summer pasta. Tons of flavor but not overly rich.
Pasta with Zucchini Sauce
via Kayotic Kitchen with slight adaptations by me

2 zucchini’s, diced
1 large garlic clove
3 slices of bacon, chopped
2 oz butter
3 tbsp flour
1 cup of milk
1 cup Parmesan cheese, shredded
salt and pepper
1. Cook bacon until nearly done. Add zucchini. Sprinkle with salt and pepper and cook until soft, but not smooshy. Add the garlic and cook until fragrant. Transfer mixture to your food processor and blitz.
2. Cook pasta according to package directions.
3. While your pasta is cooking, melt butter over low heat. Add flour and stir until smooth and bubbly. Add the milk and heat to just boiling, stirring constantly. Reduce hear to low and let simmer 2 minutes. Add the zucchini mixture and stir well, letting the sauce simmer for a few more minutes. Add the Parmesan and stir until melted.
4. Serve sauce over pasta.
