10 Minute Zucchini Carbonara

Last modified on February 2nd, 2018 at 8:55 pm

Carbonara, an Italian classic with the coziness of creaminess and comfort. We believe the true essence of carbonara lies in two words: freshness and simplicity. Fresh eggs and a simple execution can give any home cook the confidence and finesse to own their kitchen like a chef, keeping in mind that less is always more.

    Tried this tonight, be careful of adding the egg and having your temperature too high. You will get cooked egg instead of creamy. It still tasted good, but didn’t have the same texture that I was looking forward to.

    I made this while doing Whole30 and it was so comforting! I can’t believe how quick it is to make.
