Ingredients

  • 2 large zucchinis

  • 2 large carrots

  • 3 garlic cloves, minced

  • ½ cup Swiss cheese, shredded

  • ¼ cup coconut milk

  • 5 oz. bacon

  • 4 sliced green onions

  • ½ yellow onion, diced

  • Salt to taste

  • Pepper to taste

Directions

  • Use the Vegetti to make pasta strands from the zucchini and carrots.
  • Fry the bacon until crisp in a large frying pan. Drain on paper towels and set aside to cool.
  • Drain the bacon fat (reserve for another use) and sauté the garlic and onions for 2-4 minutes, until the onions are translucent.
  • Crumble the cooked bacon into the pan with the onions and garlic.
  • Combine the eggs, cheese, coconut milk, pepper, and salt and whisk until smooth.
  • Heat the “pasta” in a pot of boiling water. Drain the water and then pour in the egg mixture. Stir to combine, making sure the hot “pasta” cooks the egg.
