Pasta Carbonara

Approximate Ratio 3:1


Ingredients

1/2 pack(85g) Shirataki Noodles  (My favorite brand is Shirakiku.  These are the least chewy among all the brands I have tried.  I found these at local japanese market.  See below for packaging picture for reference)

1 large (22g) mushroom, sliced

1/2 clove (1.5g) garlic, thinly sliced

1T (14g) olive oil

6 medium (22g) shrimp, deveined

1/4C (60g) heavy whipping cream

2T (30g)  coconut milk

1T (5g) parmesan cheese

pinch ground white peppers

pinch salt

pinch parsley flakes

Directions

Rinse Shirataki noodles thoroughly in cold running water.  Boil 1 cup of water in a small pan.  When the water starts to boil, add the noodles and boil for 30 sec -1 min (please see the packaging for directions).  Drain and rinse with cold water.  Set aside.

In a sauce pan, heat olive oil.  Sautee garlic.  Add mushroom and shrimp and sautee.  Add cream and coconut milk and let it boil for a moment.  Add parmesan cheese and noodle and mix well with the sauce.  Season with salt and pepper.  

After placing pasta and sauce on a plate, sprinkle with parsley flakes.

Notes

Adding bacon (or pancetta) makes the sauce more flavorful, but since the nutrition facts vary too much among brands, i left it out here.

Reduce parmesan cheese to increase the ratio

I sometimes serve 1/2 slice of bread (julian bakery #1) toasted with 1T of butter, for dipping in the sauce.  but this will lower the ratio a little.

If you don’t have time to make the sauce yourself, Williams Sonoma sells Carbonara sauce that has great ratio with low carb.  I sometimes serve that with the noodles.

Tiffany started making keto meals for her daughter Clara in 2010, after Clara’s diagnosis with Infantile Spasm. While tough at times, managing between the strict requirements of the diet, Clara’s very sophisticated sense of taste, an older daughter whose overwhelming enthusiasm to help is only rivaled by her ability to make a much bigger mess in the process, and a dog who is determined to eat Clara’s leftovers to the detriment of her own waistline, Tiffany is grateful that her hands are being used to heal Clara. Tiffany hopes this website would be especially helpful to those working or single moms who do not have the time to design and try out new meals. Bon appetit to all the keto kids in the world!
