Zoodles with Crispy Pancetta, Pecorino and Basil

Sorry for the crappy cell phone pic, but honestly it might be better than a lot of my other photos!  This was SO GOOD.  My family devoured every last bite.

Zoodles with Crispy Pancetta, Pecorino and Basil
from The Iron You

6 zucchini
1 tbsp olive oil
4 oz pancetta, cubed or in strips
2 garlic cloves, minced
handful fresh basil, chopped
zest and juice of one lemon
4 tbsp shaved or grated pecorino

Use a spiralizer to create zucchini pasta.  Set aside.  In a large pan, heat olive oil over medium-high heat.  Add pancetta and fry for about 4-5 minutes, until just crispy.  Transfer to a plate lined with a paper towel.  Add garlic to the pan and saute until garlic is fragrant and pale golden, about 2 minutes.  Add zucchini and saute about 5 minutes, stirring constantly, until heated through.  Add zest and lemon juice.  Add pancetta and mix completely.  Transfer to a large platter, sprinkle with chopped basil and pecorino and serve.
