I love big, bold flavours that slap me right through the face. Craving pasta happens to all of us, but thanks to Eat Water’s ‘fettuccine’, I can make a creamy sauce and enjoy it with their konjac (shirataki) fettuccine, making a great keto pasta dinner. A few nights ago, I used everything I had in the fridge to make this deeply-satisfying dinner.
Remove the konjac pasta from its packaging and rinse very well under cold, running water. Do not be alarmed by the strange smell – just keep rinsing. Place the pasta into a pan of hot water and keep on a low heat while you finish the sauce.
In the meantime, heat the olive oil in a non-stick pan or wok, and fry the diced bacon and mushrooms until crispy and caramelised. Remove with a slotted spoon and set aside. (Try not pick at the bacon!)
Using the same pan and on a lower heat, gently fry the leeks and garlic in the rendered bacon fat, stirring regularly and scraping any bacon bits that may have stuck. Add a dash of water, cover with a lid and cook until the leeks have softened completely (this can take up to 15 minutes). Remove the lid, increase the heat and cook until any remaining moisture has evaporated.
Drain the warm konjac pasta and tip into the pan. Stir in the sour cream and gently warm through, using tongs to evenly mix and combine.
Serve with a generous scattering of finely grated Parmesan and chopped parsley. Season with freshly ground black pepper.
You could skip the step of adding the pasta to the pan and simply serve the thick, chunky sauce over the it. In this way, everyone gets equal amounts of the good stuff.
