Chopped ham replaces the bacon in this version of the classic Italian dish.
8 ounces uncooked spaghetti
1 cup chopped cooked ham
1/3 cup (1 1/2 ounces) grated Parmigiano-Reggiano or Parmesan cheese
1/4 cup reduced-fat sour cream
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 large eggs, lightly beaten
1 garlic clove, minced
1/4 teaspoon coarsely ground black pepper
How to Make It
Cook pasta according to package directions, omitting salt and fat. Drain the pasta in a colander over a bowl, reserving 1/2 cup liquid.
Heat a large nonstick skillet over medium heat. Add the ham, and cook for 2 minutes or until thoroughly heated. Add pasta, and stir well. Combine cheese and the next 4 ingredients (cheese through garlic), stirring with a whisk. Add the reserved pasta liquid to egg mixture, stirring with a whisk. Pour egg mixture over pasta mixture; stir well. Cook over low heat 5 minutes or until sauce thickens, stirring constantly (do not boil). Sprinkle with pepper.
