Spiralized Corgette Carbonara

Spiralized Corgette Carbonara

A spiralizer is an inexpensive gadget and good gift for someone who enjoys cooking. Essentially it turns fresh veg into noodles, and gives you lots of opportunities for introducing more vegetables into your diet. There are lots of spiralizers on the market, hand powered or electric, but the option we used was very like a model on offer for under £6 from lightinthebox. This recipe is a twist on the pasta carbonara favourite and gives you a very good portion or two of your 5 a day!

2 large courgettes
2 large eggs
1 large egg yolk
50g Parmesan, finely grated

Whisk the eggs along with a generous grinding of black pepper then stir in the Parmesan.
