Ingredients

    16 oz House Foods - Tofu Shirataki - Fettuccine Shaped Noodle Substitute
    2 oz Prosciutto
    1 medium (2-1/2" dia) Onions, raw
    5 tbsp chopped Shallots
    1 clove Garlic
    9 tbsp Egg substitute, liquid (Egg Beaters)
    3 tbsp Parmesan Cheese, grated
    Sprinkle fresh ground pepper
    (optional) sliced onion greens

Tips

Costco now has shirataki noodles in the refrigerated section! This recipe is definitely better than no carbonara. I don't like bacon in my carbonara, so I do not add any.

It's less stressful to prep the egg/prosciutto mix before starting on the onions. Cutting the prosciutto takes time. I use a kitchen shears. I also remove the fat from the outside of the prosciutto, which definitely saves a few calories. (This is why I don't add the olive oil.)

You need a good non-stick pan to make this recipe work.


Directions

In a high quality non-stick pan, saute onions, garlic, shallot in 1/2 tsp olive oil (or the fat from your prosciutto) until soft. Add shirataki noodles and toss until noodles are hot. Mix together egg beaters, prosciutto (cut into small pieces), a sprinkle of fresh ground pepper, chopped scallion if you have it, and Parmesan cheese. Take noodles off the heat, add the egg mixture, and toss until everything is coated. Serve with a sprinkle of Parmesan and fresh ground pepper.
