A twist on the traditional carbonara using courgette ribbons instead of spaghetti and omitting the cream for a gluten-free, low-carb, high-protein version of the dish.


  • 2 eggs
  • 1 egg yolk
  • 160g grated Pecorino cheese, or to taste
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 60g cubed pancetta, or to taste
  • 1 extra-large courgette, sliced into strands using a spiraliser
  • 2 tablespoons grated Parmesan cheese
  • 2 teaspoons ground black pepper


  1. Whisk eggs and egg yolk together in a bowl. Add grated Pecorino cheese and mix well.
  2. Heat olive oil in a large wok or frying pan over medium heat; cook and stir pancetta until cooked through but not crispy, 2 to 3 minutes. Add the courgette strands (courgetti); cook and stir until the courgette has warmed through but not too soft and pancetta is slightly crispy, 3 to 5 minutes. Remove pan from heat.
  3. Pour egg mixture over courgetti and stir until evenly coated. Top with Parmesan cheese and freshly cracked black pepper.
