Instructions Checklist
  • Place turkey bacon in a large skillet and cook over medium-high heat, turning occasionally, until evenly browned, about 5 minutes. Drain, let cool, and crumble.

  • Fill a large pot with lightly salted water and bring to a rolling boil. Stir in angel hair pasta, bring back to a boil, and cook over medium heat until tender yet firm to the bite, 4 to 5 minutes.

  • Meanwhile, whisk Greek yogurt, Parmesan cheese, egg, Italian seasoning, red pepper flakes, garlic salt, and onion powder together in a bowl.

  • Drain pasta and return to the pot. Pour egg mixture over the pasta while still warm. Cook and stir over low heat for 1 to 2 minutes. Add bacon pieces and toss to coat.

Cook's Note:

Strand pasta like linguine or thin spaghetti works best in this recipe.

I only had vanilla yogurt so I used sour cream instead. Also, I had marinated chicken tenders leftover so I reheated and used them instead of bacon. Next time I need to add more sour cream but all in all it was A1. My son actually said it was good also. Imagine that. Read More

I substituted regular bacon for the turkey bacon and doubled the recipe. It was good but it wasn’t like any carbonara I’ve ever had. It wasn’t creamy for one thing. Next time maybe I’ll try adding some milk or cream. Read More
