Low Fat Spaghetti CarbonaraSubmitted by: WAZAROO
IntroductionStill sinfully good comfort food! Still sinfully good comfort food!
1 pound spaghetti
1 onion, diced
4 egg yolks
1 teaspoon black pepper
1 teaspoon salt
3 teaspoons fat free half and half, optional
4 slices reduced fat bacon
While the spaghetti is cooking, fry up the bacon until crispy. Remove the bacon with a slotted spoon, crumble in a small bowl and save. Add the onion to the bacon grease and saute until transluscent. Add the onion to the crumbled bacon.
Beat the egg yolks. Add the black pepper and salt to the beaten yolks. Set aside. Add the half and half to this mixture, if desired, for a creamier dish.
Put the drained spaghetti in a large bowl and pour the onions and bacon on top. Add the egg mixture to the pasta and mix well. The heat of the spaghetti will cook the egg and make the dish creamy. Serve immediately.

Thanks for pointing that out. The original recipe had cheese but I removed it in this version in the ingredients and forgot to remove it in the directions. Appreciate your comment!
Our family had this the other night and it was awesome. No one had any idea that it was so low in fat because it had so much good flavor. Don't understand the comment about too much fat because this recipe had less than others I found here and it was so good to boot. - 7/26/08
