Recipe: Slimmed Down Pasta Carbonara

This recipe for Slimmed Down Pasta Carbonara is very flavorful and certainly a delicious alternative to the classic recipe.

I feel an obligation to try to include slimmed down versions so you have a choice in what you make….. delicious food does not have to be unhealthy. I’ve had this recipe for years and I can attest to the fact it is very, very tasty.

I’ve used linguini here… but you certainly could use spaghetti for the pasta.


Slimmed Down Pasta Carbonara Recipe:

All you need:

1 pound package of linguini, cooked according to package directions
2 teaspoons margarine or butter
1 ¼ cups finely chopped Canadian bacon
1 cup finely chopped onions
1 garlic clove, minced
¾ cup skim milk
½ cup refrigerated or frozen fat free egg product, thawed
½ teaspoon ground pepper
¼ cup grated Parmesan cheese

All you need to do:

Cook the linguini according to package directions.

While the linguini is cooking, start the sauce.

In a large sauce pan, melt the butter or margarine over medium heat.

Add the bacon, onions and garlic. Cook, stirring constantly, for about 4 minutes or until onions are tender.

Drain the linguini.

Add the linguini to the bacon mixture.

In a small bowl, whisk together the milk and egg substitute.

Add the egg mixture to the pot and add the ground pepper. Toss to coat evenly.

Cook for only a minute.

Remove from the heat and add the Parmesan cheese. Toss gently to coat evenly.

Serve immediately.
