Light Linguine Carbonara
Total TimePrep/Total Time: 25 min.
Easy and quick to prepare. Can mix up with more vegetables if desired. I added an extra strip of bacon for a bit more protein. Do follow the cooking guidelines for temperature of sauce, as too intense of heat will curdle it.

Delicious! I used skim milk instead of evaporated, since that's what I had on hand, but we really liked the lightened up version. I used a fresh linguine and loved the extra vegetables. I would make this one again.
This was delicious. The only change I made was to add garlic and more pepper. Terrific dinner and lunch the next day.
Quite good. Next time I think I will add some additional seasoning as suggested by other reviewers.
This is a quick, one-dish meal and the whole family enjoyed it! Even lightened up, it was still rich and satisfying. The red pepper flakes gave it a nice bit of heat too. I definitely added more than 1/8 tsp. though. If you like carbonara, this is a delicious lighter version.
I'm often looking for something quick and easy to make after I get home from work in the evening. This fits the bill perfectly. Full of flavor, my family loved it! I served it with garlic toast.
This recipe is fantastic! Even my meat and potatoes, healthy food phobic husband loves this dish and requests it often. I should point out though...DO NOT USE CANNED PARM! It will be bland. Use the real stuff only! I also use 4 slices of bacon instead of 2, and 2% evaporated milk. I also leave out the sweet pepper, but keep in the pepper flakes. It adds a much needed spicy element with out being too hot. It's still low cal (347 per serving), but a bit more decadent.
This was good, but I did make some modifications. To make it more rich, I used 1 cup of half & half instead of the evaporated milk (kind of defeats the purpose of this being a light dish, but it tasted great and was very filling so we naturally ate less of it). Instead of the crumbled bacon, I used chopped pancetta and heated it in a skillet and then drained the fat before tossing it in with the pasta. I also left out the red pepper and red pepper flakes and used a little more fresh ground black pepper.
