A creamy Filipino Style Carbonara with lots of bacon and mushroom made low carb by the use of Edamame Protein Pasta and Yellow Soybean Protein Pasta.
Like what I said in my previous post, peanutbutter♥ and I are trying to keep our health in check these days. We are trying to go on a low carb, no sugar diet. The keyword there is: trying. We all know how hard that can be especially because I love to cook and we love to eat. So as much as possible control na lang, diba?
So when the craving for creamy carbonara struck, we opted for a mixture of the Organic Edamame Protein Pasta and Organic Yellow Soybean Protein Pasta. Why use a mixture pa? You might ask. No special reason naman. The thing is we already have an open package of the Yellow Soybean Pasta, so since we are on a FIFO (First In, First Out) system sa kitchen, that open package of pasta must be used first. Eh hindi naman pwedeng half a package lang — kulang — so we decided a mixture na lang.
In other news, ganito ang itsura namin when taking ate Ykaie to school every morning that Twinkle is already awake…
Aayan, gulo-gulo pa ang hair, may coloring book na dala sa car at nagkukulay while watching Paw Patrol… Wala lang..heehee gusto ko lang i-share.
Anyways, I cooked the creamy Bacon Mushroom sauce just like any Filipino style carbonara. Yung pasta lang ang different. The recipe is below, just in case you want to try this recipe for your pasta day or when the craving strikes.
Just use your favorite pasta noodles.
Happy weekend everyone!
