Dinner Tuesday 20 November 2007 - Fettuccine sorta Carbonara

Fettuccine sorta Carbonara
2 rashers veggie bacon (I had the Realeat ones - not so hot)
1 clove garlic, crushed
125g quark
1 egg yolk
20g light Edam cheese, grated
1 tablespoon parsley, chopped
90g fettuccine, cooked

Cut the veggie bacon into strips and fry with the garlic in a non-stick skillet sprayed with a little olive oil.

Beat together the egg yolk & quark. Season with a little salt & some fresh pepper.

Add the hot, cooked pasta and parsley to the skillet and toss together. Add the quark mixture & cheese and toss/stir everything together, working quickly so as not to overcook the quark and make it separate. The idea is just to warm it though with the heat of the other ingredients.

Turn out on a plate and grind some more fresh pepper on top. Garnish with a few gratings of cheese.

I had this with a big herb salad.
