Let’s go Italian for today’s lunch? 🇮🇹 what about some lighter vegetarian PASTA “ALLA CARBONARA”? Quotes are mandatory because this one has little to do with the original version 😉

#recipe (for 2 people)

You need:

160 gr penne or spaghetti

2 eggs

200 gr “rice” courgette (alternatively, you can grate them into small pieces)

30 gr Parmesan cheese

olive oil

salt & pepper to taste


In a big pot, heat the water for the pasta (and please, add the salt only after the water starts boiling🙏😉). Cook the penne or spaghetti as indicated in the package).

In the meantime, in a pan cook the rice courgette with some olive oil and salt until tender (it won’t take long). Lightly beat the eggs with the Parmesan cheese, salt and pepper in a bowl.

When it’s ready, put the pasta in the pan with the courgette, add the beaten eggs and stir well for a couple of minutes until the eggs cook. Serve with some more Parmesan cheese on top, if you like.

Buon appetito!
