Asparagus and Chicken Carbonara
This healthy chicken carbonara dish is not only absolutely delicious, it's also lower in fat and calories than traditional pasta carbonara. However, for a slightly richer version of the dish, you can swap out the egg substitute for two large eggs and the evaporated milk for heavy cream. (Just be aware, these ingredient swaps will impact the nutritional data listed below.)
Raw egg yolks and whipping cream traditionally add the creaminess and fat to pasta carbonara. This lighter version with asparagus and chicken achieves the same texture with egg substitute and nonfat evaporated milk. Prevent the eggs from scrambling by being careful not to heat the egg mixture too rapidly. Eat this dish immediately to enjoy its velvety creaminess; if it stands, the sauce can become too thick.
