Carbonara with Spiralised Courgette

image

I’ve just purchased a spiraliser and so this is the first dish i’m attempting. I dont want to completely substitute my carbs for courgette, i;ve aimed for a 70% pasta 30% courgette but you adjust this to your liking.

To start get your pasta on, (approx 125 g). Whilst your spaghetti is cooking, pan fry a diced shallot, a crushed garlic clove and 100g of cubed pancetta in a little olive oil on a medium heat for 6-7 minutes.

Next add 1 tablespoon of creme fraiche, 2 eggs and  50g of grated parmesan into a bowl and mix together.

Next spiralise one large courgette and when the pasta is one minute away from being cooked add the courgette to the pan and allow to cook for a minute.

Finally, drain the pasta and courgette mix, return to the pan but remove from the heat and stir in the eggy mixture for a minute, add the pancetta mix, stir then serve with a little more parmesan sprinked over the top
