Creamy Gluten Free Carbonara
This delicious meal is a beautiful take on a well known dish.
Your friends and family wouldn't even know it was gluten free and almost dairy free.
This meal is low in lactose with Parmesan cheese being the only dairy ingredient.
You will need
1 packet Gluten Free Fettuccine
500 grams Chicken Breast, cut in 1cm pieces
8 slices short back Bacon, finely diced
Brown Onion, finely diced
5 Garlic Cloves, crushed
4 Mushrooms, diced
300 mls Vegan Sour Cream or Cream Cheese (I used Toffuti Sour Cream)
300 mls Dry White Wine
3 Tbsp Olive Oil
2 Tbsp dairy free butter (eg Nuttelex)
1 Cup Grated Parmesan Cheese
Cracked Black Pepper
Cook pasta in boiling water following packet instructions until almost cooked *
Remove and drain pasta, rinsing under cold water to prevent cooking further
In a large frypan, heat oil and fry onion, garlic, bacon and chicken until cooked
Remove from heat
In a separate frypan cook mushrooms in dairy free butter until softened
Add wine to mushrooms and boil for 2 mins
Add mushrooms to the pan with chicken etc and reduce liquid over medium heat
Stir cream, 3 eggs and Parmesan cheese together in a separate bowl
Add pasta to chicken etc and reduce to a low heat
Add creamy sauce to pan and stir through pasta and chicken etc for approximately 10 mins on a low to med heat until cooked through
Serve immediately with cracked pepper
*Note to avoid a gluggy mess, cook pasta until not quite cooked through.
