Spaghetti Carbonara with Zucchini

250g wholewheat spaghetti
4-6 zucchini
250g bacon, cubed
2 cloves garlic, minced
250ml cream
250ml parmesan cheese, grated
5 egg yolks

Cook the spaghetti and set aside.
Make zucchini strips by placing a zucchini on a chopping board and running a vegetable peeler over the length of it. Pull as many strips as you can, flipping the zucchini from time to time. Keep the zucchini strips aside.
Pour a small amount of vegetable oil in a saucepan, add the bacon and cook over medium heat for about 6 minutes.
Add the garlic and cook for another minute.
Remove the bacon and garlic from the pan and set it aside.
Pour the cream in the same saucepan and bring it to a simmer.
Add the egg yolks one at a time while whisking continuously.
Add the parmesan and zucchini strips and simmer for about 2 minutes.
Now add the bacon and cooked spaghetti and toss through.
Serve the pasta with more grated parmesan and an egg yolk on top.
