Caramelized Onion and Bacon Kohlrabi Spaghetti with Shaved Parmesan


  • 5 strips of bacon
  • 1 large red onion Blade A
  • salt and pepper
  • 2 teaspoons extra virgin olive oil + more for drizzle
  • 2 large kohlrabis peeled, Blade C, noodles trimmed
  • 1/4 cup shaved parmesan to garnish


  • Place a large skillet over medium-high heat. Once the pan is heated, add in the bacon strips and cook until crispy, 7-10 minutes, tossing halfway through. When bacon is done, set aside (using pasta tongs) on a paper towel lined plate.
  • Pour out half of the bacon grease and then immediately add in the onion and season with salt and pepper. Cook the onions until caramelized, 10-15 minutes. If the onions stick to the bottom of the pan, add splashes of chicken broth if needed.
  • Once the onions are done, wipe down the skillet carefully. Then, add in the olive oil and then kohlrabi noodles. Season with salt and pepper and cook for 5-7 minutes or until kohlrabi wilts down and is cooked to your preference. Add the onions and crumble in the bacon and toss well to combine.
  • Divide the pasta into four bowls and garnish with an extra drizzle of olive oil (if desired) and shaved parmesan.
