Zucchini, Corn, and Basil Penne with Bacon

The food blogger that I stole this from described this as "Summer in a Bowl". I think it's a pretty accurate description!

Fresh corn on the cob? Zucchini? Homemade basil pesto? Topped with my husband's beloved bacon? Yes please!

This had to be a pretty healthy meal, except for the bacon. Even that is limited to one strip per plate. I used the "healthy" penne with extra protein- it's the stuff that I usually buy especially for my son, who could go without meat (protein) most days.

This was a pretty light pasta dish. I almost thought it lacked flavor but I think I'm used to Pioneer Woman's heavy, creamy, and buttery pasta sauces. Jim told me, No, this is good!
