For the Sweet Basil Vinaigrette:


  1. Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil and cook spaghetti according to package directions. Drain and set aside.
  2. While the water is boiling this is when you can make the vinaigrette: combine basil, vinegar, Dijon mustard, honey, shallots, salt and olive oil in your blender and blend for about 30 seconds to a minute; set aside.
  3. In a large skillet over medium heat, drizzle olive oil and sauté garlic, peas and asparagus until garlic is fragrant and veggies are tender, about 3 to 5 minutes. Then add zucchini noodles and cook an additional 1 to 2 minutes.
  4. In a large bowl toss together warm spaghetti, zucchini noodles, veggies and Parmesan cheese with the basil vinaigrette. Top with crumbled bacon, serve and enjoy!
