Recipe of the Week 3/23 - Zucchini Noodle Carbonara

Ingredients

4 large zucchini

1/2 teaspoon sea salt

2 egg yolks

1 egg

1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese

4 slices (nitrate-free) deli ham or Canadian bacon, diced

Using either a spiral slicer or julienne peeler, cut zucchini into noodles. Lay noodles on a paper towel and sprinkle evenly with the salt. Let sit for 5 minutes. Squeeze out as much liquid as you can. Whisk egg yolks with egg and cheese until well combined. Heat a skillet over medium heat and cook bacon until crisp.
