Bacon Carbanara

Jump to recipe

I have always wanted to try Carbanara, ever since I saw it once in a restaurant. What is a Carbanara? Let’s ask Wikipedia:

Carbonara is an Italian pasta dish from Rome based on eggs, cheese (Pecorino Romano or Parmigiano-Reggiano), bacon (guanciale or pancetta), and black pepper. Spaghetti is usually used as the pasta, however, fettuccine, rigatoni, linguine or bucatini can also be used. The dish was created in the middle of the 20th century.

Now that we have that out of the way, there is a small glitch. My family is trying to cut carbs and therefore wont eat pasta at this time. Solution: Break out my spiralizer.
We all loved this dish and ate the entire pan of it,  wanting more. I think next time I will have to double the batch. Since there was no left overs I can’t say if it saves well but I can tell you, it was absolutely delicious.

      I love the veggie noodles because they add a lot more flavor to the dish. Its healthy and its easy.

      My family was skeptical at first and I was making two dishes with their noodles and with mine and before long everyone was eating mine.

      Plus you can get kids to eat vegetables a lot more if they are funny spiral shaped. Just plop some fresh spiraled carrots on a plate and they will eat it up.
