Nutrition Info Print Recipe
  • Prep: 10 m
  • Cook: 20 m
  • Servings:


  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 4 slices bacon coarsely chopped
  • 1 1/2 cup mushrooms thinly sliced
  • salt
  • pepper
  • 1/4 cup heavy cream
  • 1 tbsp butter unsalted
  • 2 egg yolks
  • 2 tbsp parmesan cheese finely grated
  • 12 oz zucchini spirals/noodles, raw


  1. Heat the olive oil in a medium sauté pan over medium-high heat. Add the bacon and cook until it starts to brown, 4 to 5 minutes.
  2. Add the mushrooms, toss to coat, and cook, stirring occasionally, until the mushrooms are very tender and a bit golden, 4 to 5 minutes. Reduce the heat to medium-low and add 1/4 teaspoon salt, 1/4 teaspoon pepper, and the heavy cream. Cook, stirring occasionally, until the cream has thickened, about 5 minutes. If the sauce thickens too quickly, add 2 to 3 tablespoons of water. Turn off the heat and stir in the butter, egg yolks, and 1 tablespoon of the Parmesan cheese. Add the zucchini noodles, then toss for 2 to 3 minutes to coat and warm the zucchini. Season to taste with salt and pepper and serve topped with the remaining Parmesan cheese.
