Gluten Free Frittata alla Carbonara Recipe
You may have noticed that I sometimes get obsessed with certain recipes and then proceed to make several variations of the same theme. I like what I like, and I like having options of how I can get what I want. Don’t you?
Spaghetti alla Carbonara is one of my all-time favorites. It is so simple, so quick, so classic, and is whipped up with ingredients I always seem to have on hand. So I decided to combine this favorite with another favorite of mine – the frittata.
I love frittatas for brunch or a simple dinner. They are quick and couldn’t be easier – much easier than making omelets. And despite their simplicity, they seem sort of fancy.
I made this Gluten Free Frittata alla Carbonara for just my hubby and me – even though it will normally feed 6 to 8 people. We had it for a late dinner after a hard day and then proceeded to devour the leftovers the following day; it was great for breakfast and lunch!
I used brown rice pasta, organic cream, nitrate free bacon, organic pastured Nature’s Yoke eggs, and some parmesan. I served it on a bed of baby arugula simply dressed with lemon juice, olive oil, and a bit of extra parmesan. Heaven!
- Kosher salt
- 8 ounces gluten-free spaghetti
- 10 large organic, pastured eggs
- ½ cup heavy cream
- Freshly ground black pepper
- 5 slices nitrate free bacon
- 2 ounces parmesan cheese finely grated
Preheat oven to 425 degrees.
Bring a large pot of heavily salted water to a boil. Add the spaghetti and cook according to the package directions. Drain the pasta, rinse with hot water and set aside.
Whisk the eggs and cream together with ½ teaspoon of salt and ½ teaspoon pepper. Whisk in the parmesan cheese.
Cut the bacon into ¼ inch pieces. Place in a cold, oven-proof skillet, turn the heat to medium, and cook until crisp, about 6 minutes. Add the drained pasta and toss to coat. Gently pour the egg mixture. Bake the mixture until cooked through, 15 – 17 minutes. Loosen the sides of the frittata with a dinner knife and slide the frittata out onto a cutting board or serving dish if desired.
