Garlic Tomato and Bacon Noodle Bowl

This is definitely my new favourite way to eat zucchini noodles! Eat as a meal or serve on the side side, either way you will never want to eat normal pasta again. For anyone who has never tried zucchini noodles, when cooked they have a similar texture to real pasta and they pick up the flavour of whatever you pair it with. For only a few simple ingredients its crazy how much flavour this bowl has and it actually tastes even better a day or two after! This would be a great meal to add to your weekly meal prep. This recipe is gluten free, dairy free, paleo, nut free, soy free and make it vegetarian/vegan by using a meatless alternative instead of bacon.
