Ask any Italian if they’d ever put a pasta dish into a wrap and they’d give you the evil eye… This is Dan from Primal4Life, bringing you “Paleo Noodles alla Carbonara”, and I’m enjoying it in the ever so wonderful Paleo Wrap! Rachel discovered this lovely recipe in the Beyond Bacon cookbook, and we decided to change things up a tad, per usual! But we are sticking to most of Stacy and Matthew’s original recipe. Don’t worry, the bacon makes the cut!
So Rachel began this one with some organic nitrate free bacon, frying up in a skillet with medium heat. Ever since I got messed up from antibiotics a couple years ago and acquired the nasty “Leaky Gut”, I’ve learned the importance of true organic foods as well as nitrate free bacon. It’s a must in my book, as well as in Beyond Bacon, because cheap bacon just ain’t good for ya! I know I feel horrible if I don’t get a good cut of bacon and cheap out, so I don’t mess around anymore. And the same applies with everything else I put in my body…. Hence the reason why we shop at Julian Bakery. If I lived near their actual bakery, I’d have a VIP pass and I’d be there every day… but until we officially move cross country, I’ll stick to ordering online…. No worries, because we haven’t had any issues; they do a wonderful job getting my shipments to me promptly and safely.
Next we add in some arrowroot with the bacon grease, and then in another bowl we combine some seasonings, some Sunfood Super Foods Fine Himalayan Salt for some of the best salts around, some coconut milk and eggs. Just as I previously mentioned, we get our eggs from the farm…. I like to know where my food comes from, and locally raised eggs are a must for me.
- 1 Paleo Wrap (per person)
- ¾ lb bacon
- 1 tbsp arrowroot powder
- ½ cup full-fat coconut milk
- 6 eggs
- 1 tsp dried basil
- 1 tsp dried oregano
- 1 tsp dried marjoram
- 1 tsp dried parsley
- 1 tsp Himalayan Salt
- ¼ tsp garlic powder
- 1 tbsp Paleo Butter
- 1 tbsp fresh flat leaf Italian parsley, chopped
- 4 bags Paleo Pasta
1) Fry strips of bacon (whole) in a large skillet over medium heat.
2) When bacon is finished cooking and crispy, remove it from the pan and set it aside on a plate or rack covered with a towel. This will allow the fat to be absorbed and crisp the bacon further.
3) Over medium heat, whisk the arrowroot powder into the bacon grease, and cook for 2 minutes.
4) While the arrowroot cooks, combine the coconut milk, eggs, basil, oregano, marjoram, parsley, Himalayan Salt, and garlic powder in a bowl using a whisk. Continue mixing until all yolks are fully incorporated.
5) Pour the eggs into the bacon pan, and cook, stirring frequently, in the bacon fat until the eggs are still wet but cooked through, about 4 minutes. Transfer the mixture to a mixing bowl to stop cooking. (Do not overcook the eggs, or it will no longer be a creamy sauce).
6) Slice the bacon into ½” strips, and add the bacon to the egg mixture.
7) Boil water, and when you have a rolling boil, boil your Paleo Pasta for 1-2 minutes, strain and rinse.
9) Add the egg and bacon mixture to the Paleo Noodles in the serving bowl.
10) Add Italian parsley to the bowl, and toss to combine all ingredients before serving.
11) Plate on Paleo Wrap, and “mangia!”
TIME: 20-30 Minutes
Up next, Paleo Pasta! This is probably another opportunity for the true Italian to get upset, outraged, and insulted… But once we learned that Paleo Noodles doesn’t have gluten, grains, soy, and still will fill you up (even though it’s zero calorie and zero carb!), attitudes may change. I’ve been enjoying Paleo Noodles, Paleo Fettuccini, and even Paleo Rice for quite some time now, and this Italian isn’t insulted in any way, shape or form. I’m just happy to enjoy a pasta again, without a headache tagging along!
Mix everything together, add some Paleo Butter for that smooth, creamy finish without lactose, and we have a winning dish. But wait, there’s more! I get my Paleo Wrap out, and we seal the deal… I am in love with these heavenly coconut masterpieces, where I can stuff, top off, load up, and dump just about anything onto. They hold a bunch of food, they are portable, durable, tasty, low in cal’s and have just four net carbs! Plus, GMO-free and organic is a must, and they are just that!
In order to make this one, you’ll need to take a visit to Julian Bakery… Online, at the store, or at a local vendor; but whichever you choose, know that you are getting quality Paleo products that will keep you healthy, happy, and strong like an Italian Stallion! Thanks for taking a few minutes out of your precious day to review my Paleo food blog, I hope you enjoyed it and decide to try this meal out… And please come back for more healthy yet tasty dishes!
