    A light version of a pasta favorite. Turkey bacon can be substituted for the ham. We love pepper in our family, but if 1 tsp sounds like a lot to you, just use an amount that suits your taste.

      This is a quick, easy and yummy weeknight dinner. I love carbonara but it is really high in fat. This is a nice substitute. I used Canadian bacon instead of ham and it worked just great. I would definitely recommend using the fresh herbs rather than substituting dried--they really bump up the flavor, particularly when cutting back on fat. I cut back a little on the pepper because my little guy doesn't like things too spicy.
