You will love this protein sparing noodle recipe! Carbonara is simple, fast and only 6 flavorful ingredients.

To make my Protein Sparing Noodle Carbonara, I used Pederson Farms sugar free bacon!

It is hard to find bacon without sugar and when you do, it is really expensive! That is why I always order a bunch from Pederson Farms!

I love to support small businesses and by ordering a bunch of sugar free bacon for my PSMF Carbonara, you get to eat delicious food while supporting a small business family!

Calories 282


  • ¼ cup grated Parmesan cheese
  • 2 large eggs beaten
  • 4 slices sugar free bacon cut into ¼-inch dices
  • ¼ cup chopped onions
  • 3 cloves garlic or roasted garlic, click HERE to watch me make it
  • 1 batch Protein Sparing Noodles click HERE
  • Redmond Real salt and fresh ground black pepper to taste


  • Place the Parmesan and eggs into a medium bowl and use a fork to combine well. Set aside.
  • Fry the bacon in a large cast-iron skillet over medium heat until starting to crisp. Remove half of the bacon pieces for garnish and set aside, keeping the bacon drippings in the pan.
  • Add the onions and garlic to the pan with the bacon drippings and cook over medium heat until the onions are translucent, about 4 minutes. Add the protein sparing noodles and heat for 30 seconds (not too long or the noodles will fall apart). Turn off the heat.
  • Add the Parmesan mixture and stir until the cheese is melted.
  • Season with salt and pepper, tasting first to check the salt level, as the cheese adds quite a bit of saltiness to the dish. Garnish with reserved bacon and parsley if desired. Serve immediately.

“So today was the day!  I have been morbidly obese my entire life.  Almost 5 years ago my friend Jessica turned me on to keto.  I was 315lbs at my heaviest.  I lost 85 lbs in the first year and then plateaued.
January 1st, came with Maria Emmerich’s 30 Day Ketogenic cleanse and 3 days of PSMF per week.
Today I hit ONEderland!!!!  I will be 51 in August, have not weighed under 200lbs since I was in 8th grade.
Thank you Maria Emmerich and Craig Emmerich for your wise words, guidance and excellent recipes.

    Oops, this sounds heavenly, but I know this isn’t what you meant … “until the onions are translucent and the NOODLES are soft, about 4 minutes. Add the protein sparing noodles”

    Hey Maria,
    Sounds great, but should you really recommend this for psmf? Because of the cheese, I thought psmf is dairy free and the bacon (higher fat) (and whole eggs, but that’s ok ofcourse).
    I’m just a little bit confused 😉

    • Maria Emmerich says:

      This is a recipe that includes my protein sparing noodles, but it does contain dairy so it is not a PSMF recipe.
