Easy Pea & Spinach Carbonara
I love to make this Easy Pea & Spinach Carbonara for a midweek meal which is healthy and delicious and takes only 15 minutes. Carbonara is one of the darlings of Italian cuisine – creamy egg sauce with crispy bacon mixed with spaghetti, what’s not to love about this classic? The lack of vegetables maybe?! That’s why I’ve come up with this healthier take on Carbonara.
I make my green carbonara by whisking Parmesan cheese, egg yolks, egg, pepper and salt together. I boil pasta in a large pan of boiling water with spinach and peas. When the pasta is cooked, I drain the water and reserve ¼ cup to loosen the egg mixture. I gradually mix the egg sauce with the pasta and I serve topped with toasted breadcrumbs and garlic. Yum!
