Dukan Spaghetti Carbonara

HE SAID: Good.
SHE SAID: Very good!

Spaghetti Carbonara
Came across this recipe on's website, it looked and sounded so yummy.  We've never had Spaghetti Carbonara since we both have our favorites as far at Italian food and we tend to stick to our favorites.

This was actually really good.  We would probably crisp the bacon more next time and probably add more non-fat half-and-half - it was still a bit dry for us.  Also, we love garlic-y pasta dishes, so more garlic next time too!

We followed Dukanitout's recipe pretty much to a tee.

Serves 2
Prep Time: less than 10 minutes
Cook Time: about 10 minutes

2 packages House Brand Tofu Shirataki Spaghetti noodles
6 ounces turkey bacon (cut into small pieces, like bacon bits)
1 small red onion, diced
2 cloves garlic, minced
1/4 c. dry white wine
4 egg yolks
2 T. Parmesan cheese, grated
1/4 c. non-fat half-and-half
salt and pepper to taste

Boil noodles in water with salt for approximately 5 minutes.  Cook bacon and remove from skillet.  In the meantime, prepare all other ingredients since this cooks really quickly.  Cook onion for about 5 minutes or until soft in a small amount of non-fat non-stick spray.    Add garlic at the last minute.  Deglaze pan with wine (be sure the heat isn't too hot or the wine will evaporate).  Cook wine until reduced by half.  Return bacon to the pan and add noodles.  Add egg yolks and half-and-half and constantly toss over medium heat until egg is cooked.    Remove from heat, add cheese, salt and pepper and serve.



  1. Thank you so much for posting this, i would not of even thought to look for low carb pasta!!


  2. You're welcome, Aimee! Thanks to other Dukan Bloggers I found out about them and realized as Japanese people, we've been eating these all our lives and never thought about using it as a low carb pasta...only as part of Japanese meals.

  3. I never new parmesan cheese was allowed and could you tell me what non-fat half-and-half ?

    I really fancy trying this...

  4. Hi Leah, I'm not sure which set of rules you are following, there seems to be US and UK rules. I've been following the US rules and I really don't know what the UK rules are. Perhaps that's the difference? I've never posted rules on my site, but here is a link to a rundown of the rules.

    Non-fat half-and-half...half-and-half is half cream, half milk but a lower percentage of fat...non-fat half-and-half of course is the non-fat version of it. Sorry I couldn't provide a better description of this.
