Courgetti Carbonara

Posted 2017-11-10 by Bastion Harrisonfollow

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.

Preparation Time: 15 minutes
Cooking Time: 11 minutes
Serves: 1-2

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


Method
  • Spiralise the courgettes/zucchini, and steam it over a pan of hot boiling water for 5 minutes, or until soft.

  • Fry the pancetta in a pan for 3 minutes, and then pat dry with a paper towel to remove excess fat.

  • Separate two eggs, and beat the yolks with one whole egg, parmesan, garlic, and water.
  • Fry the courgetti/zucchini in the cheese sauce for 2 minutes, then stir in the pancetta for another minute before removing from the heat.
