This protein-rich dish shaves fat grams by substituting lower-fat milk and lean Canadian bacon.



Ingredients:
4 eggs
1 cup skim or low-fat milk
2 tablespoons cornstarch
2 teaspoons olive oil
1 cup chopped onion (about 4.5 oz.)
4 oz. chopped pancetta, capocollo or Canadian bacon (about 3/4 cup)
1 cup frozen peas (about 4 oz.)
8 ounces bow-tie pasta (farfalle), cooked and drained
1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese

Instructions:
1. In medium bowl, beat together eggs, milk and cornstarch until well blended. Set aside.

2. In medium saucepan over medium heat, heat oil until just hot enough to sizzle a drop of water. Add onion. Cook, stirring occasionally, until onion begins to brown, about 3 to 4 minutes. Add pancetta. Cook, stirring occasionally, until heated through, about 2 minutes.

3. Remove pan from heat. Add cooked onion mixture to egg mixture. Add frozen peas to hot saucepan. Stir peas for about 1 minute. Pour in egg mixture. Cook over low heat, stirring constantly, until egg mixture is just thick enough to coat a metal spoon with a thin film and reaches 160° F. Remove from heat. Immediately pour over hot pasta. Sprinkle with cheese. Stir until well combined.
