Mealthy Tip

The method in this recipe for salting and weighing down the zucchini might seem time consuming but it will be so worth the time! Zucchini is high in water content and if you skip this step the sauce will become watery.

Very tasty! We were a little nervous about eating raw egg, so we sautéed the final mixture a little more. We also used thin-sliced smoked ham instead of pancetta, because it's easier for our toddler to chew. We'll definitely make this again!

So easy and delicious. Love carbonara, and love it as a GF option with zoodles!

Loved this recipe! I was worried the texture would be weird when using the zoodles and the egg, but it was great!

Carbonara is one of my favorite pasta dishes, so naturally it was one of the first I made when taking on spiralizing. Salting and weighing down the zucchini to drain the moisture is such a necessary step; don't ignore it, otherwise you will have a watery mess! I've tried this with pancetta and with bacon, and either works great. I've also used both fresh and frozen peas, it just depends on what you have access to! This is definitely a simple zoodle dish that doesn't disappoint.

Spiralizing is super fun. Any chance I get to use it I do. I had my doubts about this recipe because carbonara has to be timed just right to taste great from pan to table, but it turned out well. I highly recommend giving the zoodles extra time in the salting stage and then rinsing well and then giving them extra time on the paper towels to dry out a bit more.
