Spaghetti with Bacon, Eggs, and Swiss Chard (Gluten-Free)

Celiac.com 05/17/2016 - If you're like me and you love that Italian classic, pasta carbonara, but you're struck with little pangs from the nutrition-minded side of you, then this recipe is for you.

This more nutritious version of classic pasta carbonara marries bacon, eggs, and Parmesan cheese with Swiss chard for a hearty, tasty entree. Easy and quick to make, this recipe is sure to delight.

Ingredients:

  • 12 ounces spaghetti
  • 1 bunch Swiss chard or Spinach
  • 8 slices bacon, chopped
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 4 large eggs
  • ½ cup grated Parmesan cheese
  • Kosher salt
  • Ground black pepper
  • ½ cup flat leaf parsley, chopped

Directions:
I like to start by cooking the bacon in a large skillet over medium heat until crisp, 6 to 8 minutes. Transfer bacon to a paper towel–lined plate, and break into pieces when cool.

Cook the pasta according to package directions, adding the chard during the last 3 minutes of cooking.

Reserve ½ cup of the cooking water, and drain the pasta and chard, and return them to the now empty pot.

Wipe out the skillet and heat the oil over medium heat.

Crack the eggs into the skillet and cook 2-3 minutes until done, but a bit runny.

Toss the pasta and chard with the reserved pasta water, Parmesan cheese, ¼ teaspoon salt, and ¼ teaspoon pepper, and fold in the bacon.

Divide among bowls and top with the eggs.

Season the eggs with salt and pepper and top with additional Parmesan and a bit of chopped parsley.

Another delicious recipe, but it really does need that creamy carbonara sauce.

So just to clarify had not consumed any gluten for about 4 days before testing. I was assured by my allergist that it wouldn't affect the test. But what was alarming was that she retested my food allergies (my most recent reaction was two weeks ago) and every food allergy I have came back negative. I don't understand how that is possible. These food allergies developed when I was 20 and I am almost 24 now.

Thanks! You too! I have learned from this experience to take charge of my own health. It's nice at least that we can try the gluten-free treatment without a firm diagnosis or a doctor confirming the disease. I've also felt some of the gluten withdrawal symptoms, and my stomach pain ebbs and flows, but I'm determined to stick with the gluten-free diet to see what a difference it makes. Gemini, thank you! This was really validating and useful for me to hear. I've felt so confused through this process and just want some answers. If the biopsy results do come back negative, I'm going to follow your advice and do the gluten-free diet with repeat blood testing after a while. If they come back positive, well, then I'll have my answer. I'm supposed to get them back next week.

I have celiac and eosinaphalic esophagitis. I was put on a steroid inhaler recently. I use it like an inhaler but swallow the air instead of breathing it in. You may want to look into EOE and it's relationship to celiac. Just a thought. My swallowing and celiac seem to be related.

You have eat gluten every single day until after testing. And the celiac blood test is supposed to be done as well.

If I was the big guy, there's no way I would have to wait 3 and a half weeks for a test lol. My GI doc never recommended the antibody test. He said doing it with the scope was the only sure way to know. Does anybody know if I should eat a little gluten the day before my test to see if I will get an accurate enough test? Or will it not matter, once the damage is done it's done?
