Spaghetti Squash Carbonara
Spaghetti Squash Carbonara - An easy dish ready in 15 minutes. Loaded with bacon, garlic and parmesan. Gluten free.
Cut open the spaghetti squash and scrape out the seeds.
Place the squash cut side up in a microwave proof dish.
Pour a 1/4 cup of water in each center and loosely cover with plastic wrap. Microwave for 8-10 minutes until soft.
Meanwhile crack the eggs in a small bowl and stir in the parmesan cheese. Set aside.
Dice the bacon and fry until crisp over medium heat. Drain most of the fat.
Press or grate the garlic into the pan with the bacon and cook for 1-2 minutes.
Uncover the squash and reserve 1/2 cup of the starchy water leftover. This will help to thicken the sauce later.
Scrape out the spaghetti squash and add it to the pan.
Pour the egg mixture into the squash and stir until fully combined.
Add the reserved water, salt, pepper and parsley.
