Zucchini Carbonara

zucchinicarbonara

I was planning on making zucchini bread for brunch this weekend and I misread the amount for zucchini's and bought way too many! 3 too many to be exact. So what did I do? Combine my favorite pasta dish, pasta carbonara, with soft luscious zucchini's. I was out of turkey bacon so I left it out but added plenty of garlic to make up for it. I just cubed up 3 zucchini's, sautéed them with garlic and salt and pepper, and added them to the pasta. Then at the end, hit the pasta and zucchini with the egg/parmesan mixture. Delicious!!!!

1/2 box of pasta, any shape
3 zucchini, cubed
3 cloves garlic, minced
2 eggs, beaten
1 cup grated parmesan cheese

1 Boil water for pasta. Beat 2 eggs in a separate dish and mix with parmesan.
2 While water is boiling, heat olive oil in deep skillet and throw in minced garlic and cubed zucchini and cook together for about 7-8 minutes until softened.
3 Drop pasta into boiling water. Cook until al dente and drain.
4 Once zucchini is softened, mix the drained pasta into the deep skillet with the zucchini.
5 Pour egg/parmesan mixture over the pasta and zucchini and quickly, using tongs, mix thoroughly until egg sauce is shiny and thickened. Serve with more grated parmesan on top. Enjoy!

I actually think this is a blessing in disguise!! I love all these things as well, so why not piece them all together!!

I was on a hiatus for a while so it's good to be back and connect with my fellow foodies!! :)
