    • 10 ounces whole grain thin spaghetti
    • 2 tablespoons olive oil
    • 4 cloves garlic, finely minced
    • 8 ounces smoked salmon
    • 2 eggs
    • 2 egg whites (about 1/4 cup)
    • 1/2 cup shredded Parmesan
    • Salt and pepper, to taste


    1. Cook spaghetti according to directions, omitting salt and fat. Before draining, reserve 2 cups of pasta water.
    2. In a Dutch oven over medium heat, heat olive oil and add garlic. Cook until garlic is softened, about 3 minutes. Add in salmon and cook until salmon is warmed.
    3. In a small bowl, whisk together eggs and egg whites.
    4. Remove Dutch oven from heat and add cooked spaghetti. Stir to evenly distribute salmon and garlic.
    5. While stirring briskly, stream in eggs until egg is no longer slimy-looking and thickens. Add in pasta water, 1/2 cup at a time, until pasta is creamy and saucy.
    6. Divide pasta into four bowls, divide cheese on top of the pasta.
    7. Taste for seasoning and add salt and pepper if necessary. Both the salmon and cheese are salty, so you might not need to add any salt.
