Bacon, pasta and grilled vegetables make for a tasty and seasonal summer recipe. Take your garden harvest, throw it on the grill, and then combine it with bacon (truly makes everything better!) pasta, and fresh herbs. Tastes like summer! Any combination of fresh, seasonal vegetables with any type of pasta will do. A simple recipe that can be adapted to your family's tastes.
Preheat grill or grill pan to medium high heat.
In a large skillet over medium high heat, cook bacon until crisp. Remove from pan and chop into small pieces.
Meanwhile slice the zucchini into 1/2 inch thick rounds. Drizzle corn and zucchini with olive oil and place on the grill. Cook until lightly charred and cooked through. (About 10-12 minutes for corn and 5-6 minutes for zucchini) Remove from heat and cut the kernels from the corn.
Melt butter in the pan with the bacon grease. Add garlic and tomatoes to the pan and cook, stirring frequently, until tomatoes soften and release their juice, about 5 minutes.
Meanwhile, bring a large pot of generously salted water to a boil and cook pasta according to package instructions.
When the pasta is al dente, add pasta to the pan with tomatoes and garlic. Add salt and pepper to taste. Toss to evenly coat pasta.
In a large bowl combine pasta mixture, bacon, grilled corn and zucchini. Stir to combine. Serve topped with burrata and basil.
