Step 1

Whisk the cream and egg yolk together in a small bowl, then season with black pepper.


Step 2

In a frying pan, add the olive oil (approx. 2 tsp) and cook bacon for 1-2 minutes on either side over a high heat, or until cooked through. Set aside, then slice into small pieces.


Step 3

Lower the heat to medium and cook your onion for 1-2 minutes. Add the garlic and cook for a further 30 seconds.


Step 3

Add the spiralised zucchini and cook for a 1-2 minutes, then pour in the egg-and-cream mixture as well as the parmesan. Stir through and cook for a further 2-3 minutes until the sauce is heated through, adding the bacon for the last minute.

Transfer to a serving bowl, season, and enjoy.
