Shrimp and spaghetti noodles are covered in a carbonara-style sauce. Bacon is omitted, and skim milk is used as the base of the sauce to cut calories but not flavor.

Instructions Checklist
  • Bring a large pot of lightly salted water to a boil. Cook spaghetti in the boiling water, stirring occasionally, until tender yet firm to the bite, about 12 minutes. Drain and immediately return spaghetti to pot.

  • While spaghetti is cooking, place shrimp in a large pan over medium heat. Add 1/2 the olive oil; season with salt and pepper. Cook and stir until shrimp is mostly opaque, about 5 minutes. Add shrimp to the pot of cooked and drained pasta; cover and keep warm.

  • Heat the remaining olive oil in the same pan. Cook and stir onion until translucent, about 5 minutes. Add garlic; cook until fragrant, about 1 minute more. Add milk and half-and-half; cook until heated through, about 3 minutes.

  • Pour 1/4 cup of the milk mixture into a bowl; add eggs and stir until warmed through. Pour into the pot with the shrimp and pasta and add the milk mixture. Top with Parmesan cheese and parsley.

I have a bacon lover at my house so cooked some bacon and used a bit of the grease for the shrimp and onions/garlic. I also sauteed some garlic for the shrimp and added a bit of Old Bay. It was good! Read More

Bad recipe that ruined my dish terribly. Does not specify what happens and tasted bland. I wish I could give zero stars. Read More

I cut the portions back to 3 and made no other changes. This would have been so much better with the traditional bacon but I understand that the submitter was aiming for a low fat dish. Thanks for sharing. Read More

No flavor. If you make it be sure to add any kind of Italian seasonings that you may like. I added Old Bay to give it a seafood flare. Read More
