Cook Time: 10 mins.

 

Ingredients:

80mL cream

1 egg yolk

10mL extra virgin olive oil

1 rasher bacon

60g brown onion, diced

1 garlic clove, crushed

150g zucchini, spiralised

40g parmesan, grated

1 pinch sea salt

2 pinches black pepper

Basil or flat-leaf parsley, to serve (optional)

 

Method:

  • Whisk the cream and egg yolk together in a small bowl, then season with black pepper.
  • In a frying pan, add the olive oil (approx. 2 tsp) and cook bacon for 1-2 minutes on either side over a high heat, or until cooked through. Set aside, then slice into small pieces.
  • Lower the heat to medium and cook your onion for 1-2 minutes. Add the garlic and cook for a further 30 seconds.
  • Add the spiralised zucchini and cook for a 1-2 minutes, then pour in the egg-and-cream mixture as well as the parmesan. Stir through and cook for a further 2-3 minutes until the sauce is heated through, adding the bacon for the last minute.
  • Transfer to a serving bowl, season, and enjoy.
