Are you ready for this stick-to-your-rib noodle dish that just happens to be low-carb? Eggplant noodles soak up all of the bacon fat then is coated with a quick Alfredo sauce and tossed with crispy bacon.  Eggplant and Bacon Alfredo is a hearty dinner that everyone will love.

Eggplant and Bacon Alfredo

Eggplant noodles are one of my new favorite things. Their spongy texture is perfect for soaking up sauce and fat without becoming too watery or too greasy. Recently we put up another eggplant noodle recipe featuring sesame and cilantro flavors if you’d like to try some more eggplant dishes.

If there is too much leftover then I have found that this dish reheats surprisingly well! This was just as good packed in a lunch for the next day too.

2. When the bacon has rendered out and becomes crisp then remove it from the pan and drain on paper towels. Save all of the bacon grease.

3. Peel and julienne the eggplant. Cook it in the bacon grease until it softens. In the pictures you can see that I changed pans because the first one wasn’t going to be big enough. You can use the same pan if it’s large enough for all the eggplant.

4. As the eggplant cooks it will soak up all the bacon grease. Create a well in the center then add the 2 tablespoons of butter. Stir all the noodles so that they become coated with the melted butter then mix in the grated garlic.
