Developed in mid-twentieth century Rome, carbonara is a pasta dish consisting of a creamy cheese sauce with diced bacon. Making a cheese sauce can often be tedious and time-consuming, but in this recipe is couldn't be easier. Swapping spaghetti with low-cal courgettes/zucchini, also makes it more nutritious, but just as comforting.

Cooking Time: 11 minutes
Serves: 1-2

2 courgettes/zucchini
55g pancetta, diced
25g parmesan, grated
1/2 tsp ground garlic
30ml warm water
3 eggs
