Keto Mushroom Carbonara with Zucchini Pasta

Elegant yet super satisfying, this deliciously quick and easy preparation makes creamy mushroom keto pasta accessible any night of the week. FYI, if you can’t find zucchini noodles, you can use a vegetable peeler to make long zucchini shavings. 
Serves 2

Ingredients List

  • 1 Tbsp olive oil
  • 4 slices (4 oz) bacon, coarsely chopped
  • cups thinly sliced mushrooms
  • sea salt and freshly ground pepper
  • 1/4 cup heavy cream
  • 1 Tbsp (1/2 oz) unsalted butter
  • 2 egg yolks
  • 2 Tbsp finely grated Parmesan cheese
  • 12 oz (about 2 cups) raw zucchini spirals/noodles

  • Heat the olive oil in a medium sauté pan over medium-high heat. Add the bacon and cook until it starts to brown, 4 to 5 minutes.
  • Add the mushrooms, toss to coat, and cook, stirring occasionally, until the mushrooms are very tender and a bit golden, 4 to 5 minutes. Reduce the heat to medium-low and add 1/4 teaspoon salt, 1/4 teaspoon pepper, and the heavy cream. Cook, stirring occasionally, until the cream has thickened, about 5 minutes. If the sauce thickens too quickly, add 2 to 3 tablespoons of water. Turn off the heat and stir in the butter, egg yolks, and 1 tablespoon of the Parmesan cheese. Add the zucchini noodles, then toss for 2 to 3 minutes to coat and warm the zucchini. Season to taste with salt and pepper and serve topped with the remaining Parmesan cheese.

    This recipe is delicious and so easy! I spiralized 2 small zucchinis (you can get good and very affordable spiralizers on Amazon) and added 2 pressed garlic cloves. I also mixed shitake mushrooms with white mushrooms because that’s what I had in the fridge and it was super tasty. The only other adjustment was adding a little more heavy cream, probably 1/3 cup vs 1/4 cup, and more water, about 1/4 cup.
