Diet Recipe: Carbonara

As always, this version has only 200 calories (and no cream or bacon).

Ingredients (for 1)
* 30 grams of Ronzoni’s spaghetti (100 calories)
* 56 grams of Farmer John’s fat-free smoked ham, cut in small pieces (50 cals)
* 1 egg (80 cals)
* 3 tbspoons fat-free milk (10 cals)
* salt and pepper to taste

1. Cook spaghetti according to package directions. 3 minutes before it’s ready, pour in the ham and cook the two together. Drain. Place ingredients back to the pan away (from the fire).
2. In a small deep plate (like a breakfast bowl) add the egg, the milk, the salt and pepper. Start beating them with a whisk until they all become “one”. Throw away half of that mixture.
3. Put the pan back to high heat. Pour the egg/milk mixture in the pan and start stirring vigorously with a wooden spoon just until the egg is starting to cook (this process usually takes 20 seconds). Serve hot.
