I am adding this to Presto Pasta Nights 166. This week it's hosted by Ruth of Once Upon a Feast, the founder. Check out her blog for this week's round up.
70g bacon, sliced
2 medium courgettes, grated
1 garlic clove, crushed
5 tbsp single cream
30g Parmesan, finely grated
Cook the bacon in a dry, non-stick pan until crisp and golden (it'll give off enough fat to cook itself). Add the courgette and garlic and cook for 8 minutes or until the courgette is softened. Whisk the egg, cream and Parmesan and season with pepper. Cook the pasta following the pack instructions, then lift out of water with tongs straight into the courgette pan.
Toss well over the heat then take off the heat and toss with the egg and cream mix, adding 2-3 tbsp of the pasta water until you have a nice emulsified sauce.
