Healthier Pasta Carbonara

Sure, we're all fans of carbonara, but it's not exactly the healthiest dish. That is why we've tried a healthier take on the dish, one that our diet-obsessed fans will surely enjoy. The amount of fat is significantly reduced, but that doesn't come at a cost taste-wise. The flavor is still there, thanks to the use of good quality ingredients.

I guess I’ve always had a passion for cooking ever since I was a kid when I was mom’s little helper in the kitchen. Even though I wasn’t actually cooking, I was a picky eater, and I focused on bringing more flavor to her dishes, by adding extra herbs and spices I felt might enrich it. Time has passed, and I haven’t changed that much: I am now my girlfriend’s helper.
