Sometimes we need a quick and easy dinner mid-week, right? Something that’s fast to make, but also definitely still delicious. Carbonara is perfect for this. I use spiralized sweet potato here for the noodles, super tasty and healthy too! Add some crispy, baked prosciutto because nothing is better than thinly sliced, crispy, salty prosciutto. SO GOOD. Add everything together and you have a fantastic meal, Sweet Potato Carbonara, ready in about 20 minutes!
- 2 large sweet potatoes
- 75 grams prosciutto
- 2 tbsp olive oil
- 1 tsp sea salt
- 3 tsp black pepper
- 3 eggs
- 2/3 cup parmesan
- 2 tsp smoked paprika
- 3 cloves minced garlic
Preheat the oven to 425 degrees F.
Wash and peel the sweet potatoes. Spiralize into noodles.
(Tip: Don't be afraid to apply a good amount of pressure when spiralizing!)
Add the sweet potato noodles to a large bowl, and toss with 1 tbsp of the olive oil. Season with 1 tsp of sea salt and 2 tsp ground black pepper.
Line two baking sheets with parchment paper.
Add the sweet potato noodles to one. And lay out the sliced prosciutto on the other.
Place in the oven and bake for 10 minutes. (You can take the prosciutto out a couple of minutes early if it is crisped up to your liking.)
In a medium bowl combine the eggs, parmesan cheese, smoked paprika and the remaining 1 tsp of black pepper. Stir well, making sure there are no clumps, and set aside.
Add 1 tbsp of olive oil to a large pan and heat over medium-high heat. Add the garlic and cook for a minute.
Remove the prosciutto and sweet potato noodles from the oven.
Add the noodles to the pan with the garlic, tossing for a minute.
Remove from heat, and add the egg mixture. Toss well, covering the noddles with the sauce.
Crumble the baked prosciutto over top the pasta. Serve with a side salad and enjoy!
