Light Shrimp Carbonara
We all seem to love Carbonara. Try this light Shrimp Carbonara recipe and let me know what you think.
8 oz whole wheat spaghetti
12 oz of pre – cooked frozen shrimp, thawed
1 slice of bacon, cut into 1/8th inch pieces
1 clove of garlic, crushed
1/3 c ready to eat bacon bits ( Hormel or Oscar Mayer)
1/2 c grated Parmesan
salt and pepper
Cook pasta as directed and set aside. Heat frying pan and put in bacon and garlic. Saute for 2 or 3 minutes until the grease starts to cook out of the bacon a bit. Add the cooked spaghetti. Toss occasionally until noodles are hot. Add bacon bits, grated Parmesan and shrimp. Toss until evenly distributed, a couple minutes. Take off the heat and add the eggs and toss until everything is coated. Let sit for a couple minutes to let the egg set, then season with salt and pepper.
Simple, fast and way healthier than my old recipe (which I still love too). This one is a keeper!
