Cheesy Keto lasagna for your Ketogenic low-carb meal plan.
This recipe makes the Keto diet even more appealing than other diets.
Lasagna is everyone’s favorite Italian dinner recipe.. or at least mine.
Very few pasta dishes taste as rich and delicious as lasagna does. And I’m a sucker of those comfort foods.
But the real lasagna can be pretty heavy in carbs with the pasta and the different fillings you choose to put.
So I had to find an alternative way to make a low-carb lasagna when I started the Keto diet.
But for the longest time, I took the easy (lazy) route.
Instead of finding a keto lasagna recipe, I just omitted the pasta and added more cheese. Each time hoping it won’t kick me out of ketosis.
But when I picked up a keto cookbook called “Craveable Keto Cookbook” and found a lasagna recipe, I had to give it a try.
From the ingredient list, I could tell it’s cheesier than your regular lasagna and less dense, which I like.
And this recipe didn’t disappoint me.
It’s yummy, rich in flavors and very cheesy. And most importantly, it’s definitely Keto friendly.
I have to admit. It’s a bit more labor-intensive than the lasagna you’re used to. But you can pre-make the pasta the night before to speed up the process if preferred.
If you’re on a Keto diet and craving for some comfort food, I vouch for this low-carb lasagna.
I promise you will not be disappointed.
Before getting to the meat of this post, keto lasagna recipe, I wanted to run through a few lasagna noodle substitutes for keto. It’s so that you have more options depending on what you have on time and much time you have to cook.
What Is a Good Substitute for Lasagna Noodles?
Zucchini, sliced thinly in long strips can be a delicious keto substitute for noodles.
You can also use thinly sliced eggplants in place of conventional noodles for keto lasagna. And the other option is to make your own cheese noodles (see recipe below). It’s the more flavor-packed keto noodle option but also the most time consuming one. But you won’t regret putting the time in! I can guarantee you that.
But if you are short on time, feel free to go with veggie noodles like zucchini and eggplants. They are equally delicious and low-carb noodle options you want to master for the keto diet.
Ingredients for the “Keto Pasta”
Lasagna is terrific comfort food, but it packs an uncomfortable amount of calories. A surprising number comes from the lasagna noodles, so zoodles can be a great alternative.
