Protein-Packed Spaghetti Carbonara (Gluten-Free, Keto)

I just now know that I was doing this recipe in the wrong way. The recipes I have been doing were no good enough for me, I felt that I was missing something, but the other day I saw one that I can´t remember where and who made it, if you know about it, please tell me, I will update right here. Anyway, that captived me, hmm, a lot of protein and grease, things that are essential for this recipe, oh yes!, how did I not realize that before?. 

This recipe is exactly what I have been looking for, this is so fabulous, a lot of flavors coming up, it´s a dream come true, ha, ha,  it´s rich, creamy, and melts in your mouth, and I did not taste the savor of the eggs at all. 

I literally love cheese but I´m allergic to the lactose of the milk, but I found that some cheeses don´t affect me, like the parmesan cheese. I am eating Paleo so I prefer don´t compromise my health.

So for those that are strict with the Paleo Diet, or can´t eat any dairy cheese like I am I show you one that I like more without dairy products but feel free to search for one that you like it most.

I added some ingredients, including one more egg, so wherever you see optional, it´s where I have added ingredients for my personal liking.

It´s a good recipe for complicated days, because it´s easy to make and filling, in less than 30 minutes you are eating even, you can make it and save the leftover in the fridge, then add a little water to heat it and does not lose moisture, and some more shredded parmesan cheese on, and you are ready to eat it!

This recipe is full of protein, completely Paleo and Keto but depends on the kind of spaghetti you will use could be gluten-free as well.

Let´s do it!

Preparation Time: 15 min
Cooking Time: 2-12 min (depends on the pack instructions)
Total Time: Around 25 min
The recipe makes 4-6 servings

  1. 1 pound  paleo spaghetti or any type according to your diet type
  2. 1 pack 12 oz of uncured grass-fed bacon
  3. 1/2 cup of chopped uncured grass-fed ham (optional)
  4. 1 fresh large organic whole egg 
  5. 7 fresh organic egg yolks 
  6. salt to test
  7. fresh black pepper to taste (requires more than they normally use)
  8. 1-1/2 cups fresh shredded Parmesan Reggiano cheese or dairy-free cheese parmesan cheese. Recipe below
  9. 1 large onion finely sliced (optional)
  10. 4 garlic cloves minced (optional)
  11. 1/3 fresh chopped parsley leaves (optional)
  12. 2 tablespoons Italian seasoning or use fresh herbs (optional)
  13. Dash nutmeg (optional)
  14. Set aside 1 1/2 cup of cooked pasta water


With a sharp knife, cut the bacon, about 1 inch approximately.

On a skillet and cook them until they are done. Set aside on a paper towel to maintain them crisp.

Beat the whole egg with the 7 egg yolks. Set aside.

Add to the skillet the chopped ham and onion sliced to medium temperature until the onion is translucid, then the minced garlic cloves until they are fragrant. Don`t rush, please, let the onion be caramelized.

Meanwhile, cook the spaghetti al dente, according to instructions on the package.

Once done, before draining the water, reserve about 1 1/2 cup of it to temper the eggs, maybe you don`t need all the water, but this step is worth it.

Add the water a little by little to the beaten eggs, remove fast with a tong, don´t cook your eggs.

Then, pour the beaten eggs on the spaghetti, stir fast again, the spaghetti will absorb all the eggs. Let your pot on the stovetop at a lower temperature.

 Now is time for the rest of the ingredients, pour first the bacon grease with onions, ham, and garlic on the spaghetti,  removing until well incorporated, add seasonings, salt, black pepper, and 1/2 cup of parmesan cheese.

Then, finally, add the bacon until well mixed, add more parmesan cheese, about 1/2 cup more.

Taste it again, and adjust the salt and fresh black pepper.

Put the quantity desired on each plate, if you want to show it off, you can turn it over with the tong,  garnish each with chopped parsley, and more Parmesan cheese.

Enjoy with raw salad and a cup of wine! ๐Ÿ˜‹๐Ÿ˜‹๐Ÿ˜‹
