Equipment

  • Skillet
  • (Alt) Magimix and/or Thermomix

Ingredients

  • 1 tsp garlic paste or crushed garlic
  • 2 rashers bacon sliced into strips
  • 1.5 cups mushrooms roughly chopped
  • 0.75 cup thickened or heavy cream or lightly beaten eggs
  • 150 g Palmini Linguine drained, or zoodles
  • 2 tablespoons parmesan cheese finely grated
  • Salt flakes and black pepper
  • 1 tablespoon chives chopped to serve

Instructions

CONVENTIONAL METHOD

  • In a large skillet on medium high-high heat, fry the garlic paste, bacon and mushrooms until lightly golden.
  • Add the cream and drained Palmini noodles. Simmer until the cream has thickened and the noodles are warmed through. Stir the parmesan through the sauce and season to taste. Serve with chopped chives. (If using the eggs in place of cream, see notes.)

THERMAL METHOD

  • (I add 1 tbsp oil or butter when using a thermo-cooker). Add the bacon and mushrooms to the bowl; cook 5 min/100°C/reverse/speed 2/centre cap off.
  • Add the cream; cook 10 min/110°C/reverse/speed 2/centre cap off.
  • Place the noodles into the mixer and push into the sauce; cook for a further 5-10 min/110°C/reverse/speed 2/centre cap off until cream has thickened. Stir the parmesan through the sauce and season to taste. Serve with chopped chives.

Notes

INGREDIENTS
Palmini Linguine is made with hearts of palm. It is very low carb and calorie. With only 20 kCal and 2g net carbs per serve. 
Heavy Cream can be replaced with 1-2 eggs for a dairy-free (and lower-carb pasta) version. Simply cook the bacon and mushrooms to your preference. Stir through and heat the pasta of choice then fold through lightly whisked eggs for a more traditional carbonara just before serving.
Mushrooms are not traditionally used in a carbonara (boscaiola) but this way is so much better in my opinion.
SUBSTITUTES
Any low carb pasta of choice can be used in this recipe. Simply cook to the suggested method, then add to the thickened sauce or fold through with lightly beaten eggs. Zoodles, (or zucchini noodles), are a great substitute.
Ham, pancetta or prosciutto can be used in place of bacon.
THERMAL METHODS
When using the eggs for this recipe in place of cream, I would suggest adding the noodles in the last 5 minutes of cook time and omit step 2. Stir the whisked eggs through the hot noodles just before serving.
When cooking this recipe in the Magimix
  • Add the garlic, bacon and mushrooms into the cooking bowl; set to EXPERT mode 5 mins/speed 3/110°C/cap off.
  • Scrape down the sides of the bowl. Add the cream and noodles; set to EXPERT mode 10 mins/speed 1A/110°C.
