Directions

Step 1
Heat a large pot of salted water over medium-high heat and bring to a boil. Add pasta and cook according to package directions.

Meanwhile, in a deep-sided skillet, cook the bacon on medium heat until it begins to brown. Add the zucchini and olives and sauté on high heat until the zucchini starts to brown. Remove from heat and reserve.
