  • 4 zucchini large
  • 1/2 teaspoon sea salt
  • 2 egg yolks
  • 1 egg
  • 1/4 cup parmesan cheese grated
  • 4 deli ham slices or Canadian bacon, diced, nitrate-free (Boar's Head was used in this recipe)
  • 1/2 teaspoon black pepper freshly ground


  • Using either a spiral slicer or julienne peeler, cut zucchini into noodles. Lay noodles on a paper towel and sprinkle evenly with the salt. Let sit for 5 minutes. Squeeze out as much liquid as you can.
  • Whisk egg yolks with egg and cheese until well combined. Heat a skillet over medium heat and cook bacon until crisp. Add zucchini noodles and stir until warmed through. Reduce heat to low and stir in egg mixture. Turn off heat and stir noodles until eggs are just cooked.
  • Season with black pepper before serving. Enjoy!
