DIGESTIBLE CARBS: 10 grams​
Preparation Steps:
Level of Difficulty:
Easy​
Time Needed:
Ingredients:
1 pound Dreamfields
Penne Rigate
1 pound pancetta,
diced into
1-inch cubes
Sea salt and freshly
ground black pepper
6 eggs, at room
temperature
1/2 cup heavy
cream, at room
temperature
1 1/4 cup freshly

1 pound dried penne
4 tablespoons
chopped fresh
parsley leaves​
Serves:
SERVES 6​
Directions:
Heat a large sauté pan until hot.

Add pancetta and sauté until golden brown and
crispy, about 5 minutes. Season with black pepper
and remove pan from heat.

In a medium bowl, beat the eggs and cream. Season
with salt and pepper. Stir in Parmesan, reserving 2
tablespoons for garnish.

In a large pot, boil 6 quarts of salted boiling water.
Add pasta and cook until al dente, about 8 to 10
minutes. Drain pasta in a colander. While the pasta
is still hot, return it back to the pot. Add the
browned pancetta and mix well. Add the cream
mixture and coat the pasta completely. It's
important to work quickly while the pasta is still
warm so that the cream mixture will cook, but not
curdle.

Add remaining Parmesan and chopped parsley. Serve
hot and enjoy!​

Sounds wonderful But I can only have 20 fat grams in a whole day. Carb intake is good in that recipe.

Just do a few substitutions then...
instead of panchetta, use canadian bacon, or turkey bacon...
Eggs...use egg beaters or egg whites...
cream...use half and half or whole milk...there's even a low fat half and half now... :swave:
