Keto Lasagna WITH NOODLES!

BEST LASAGNA eVER (1).png

I don’t know where to begin. This lasagna was EVERYTHING.

It tastes BETTER than regular lasagna..BETTER. I am being 100% honest guys. You need to make this like ASAP.

The “noodles” themselves are delicious on their own but pair that with a ton of cheese, meat and sauce…and OMG. That’s all I can say.

I slightly tweaked this recipe from it’s original I found here. (The author, Kyndra is a genius & I give her full credit!)

Ingredients:

Noodles:

    • 2 eggs
    • 4 oz cream cheese, softened
    • 1/4 cup Parmesan cheese, grated (I used half real parmesan and half dried)
    • 1 1/4 cup mozzarella cheese, shredded (130g)
    • Pinch of each: majoram, thyme, rosemary
    • 1/2 tsp basil
    • 1/2 tsp oregano
    • 1/4 tsp garlic powder
    • 1/4 tsp onion powder
    • 1/4 tsp salt

Filling:

  • 1 lb ground beef
  • 1 1/2 cups of lower-carb pasta sauce (I used “Classico Tomato Basil” but added some salt, splenda and basil to taste )
  • 3/4 cup (90g) mozzarella cheese, shredded
  • 6 tbsp 2% cottage cheese
  • 1/3 chopped onion
  • 1oz finely chopped green pepper
  • 1 minced garlic clove
  • 1/2 tsp chili pepper flakes (optional)
  • 1 tsp dried oregano
  • 1 tsp dried basil
  • Pinch of each: majoram, thyme, rosemary
  • Salt and pepper to taste

Directions:

Noodles:

1. Preheat oven to 375° Line a 9×13 baking dish with tinfoil sprayed with oil or parchment paper.

2. In mixing bowl, using a hand mixer, cream together cream cheese and eggs.

4. Fold in mozzarella cheese and mix until well incorporated.

5. Spread the mixture into the baking dish, forming an even layer.

6. Bake for 20-25 minutes.

7. When the “noodles” are done baking, cool in the fridge for about 20 minutes and then cut into thirds. This makes three perfectly sized “noodle” layers for an 8.5 X 4.5 X 2.5 loaf pan.

*NOTE: You can also make the noodles ahead of time and store them in your fridge or freezer!)

For The Filling

8. In a large skillet over medium-high heat, combine ground beef, onion, peppers and  your spices. Cook until the meat is browned.

9. Drain excess fat from pan and add ¾ cup of your sauce to meat. Reduce heat to low and simmer for 10 minutes.

Putting It All Together

10. Pour ¼ cup marinara sauce into bottom of loaf pan. Top with the first “noodle” layer

11. Layer a third of the ground beef mixture. Top with ¼ cup mozzarella cheese and 3 tbsp cottage cheese, and cover with another “noodle” layer. Repeat these steps.

12. Cover the top “noodle” layer with remaining ground beef, and mozzarella cheese.

  1. This is by far one of the best keto recipes I’ve made yet! My non-keto husband and son love this more than any other lasagna I’ve ever made and we’ve had it at least 4 times now (having it again tonight!) I do sub ricotta for the cottage cheese. Thanks so much sharing!

  2. I made the recipe today and even the hubby like it Win Win.. changed the cream cheese( plain) to a garlic and herb flavor and use ricotta. I do have a question what is the calorie count per serving? Thank is is fabulous!

  3. Can’t wait to try this – thanks for sharing! Just curious: have you tried freezing the noodles before assembling the lasagna? I read the above comment about assembling the lasagna & then freezing it. TIA

    1. I have not tried that yet but it’s a good experiment for the future! I’d love to do a few more recipes with the noodles as a base!

  4. I have made this before and it is phenomenal! Am going to make it again for a lunch for family, three of us are keto and the other three not, but I have no doubt they will love it too
