MORE EASY KETO & LOW CARB RECIPES

Low-Carb Italian Beef Bake | Chicken Alfredo Zoodle Bake


This keto lasagna recipe in one of those recipes I keep in my "Things to Make for Non-keto Peeps" file.

I am not joking when I tell you that nobody, and I DO mean nobody ever guesses that this is a low carb recipe! My son, my photographer and her entire family, all love this lasagna and couldn't believe it was low carb.

I was a pasta addict before I went low carb, and loved, loved, LOVED, Italian food!

I mean, when my kids were growing up we would have dinner dates at Olive Garden just about every week we loved it so much.

So when I decided to jump into the low carb pool I knew I was going to have to come up with recipes that could calm those cravings for me or I was going to go crazy!

The first one I came up with was a copycat of Olive Garden's Alfredo Sauce. I even made a fall inspired version in this Pumpkin Alfredo Sauce. My family thought it sounded kinda weird, as did my photographer, but once they tried it they were blown away at how good it was. We all look forward to having it as soon as fall hits.

The secret to keeping the carbs low is my homemade Italian Sausage (regular store bought sausage has hidden carbs) AND hearts of palm noodles. 

If you have never had hearts of palm I kinda compair them to a super mild asparagus or artichoke flavor? Kinda.

But once they are in a recipe you really don't taste them and they mimic the feel and texture of honest to goodness pasta! I promise you!!

I have started using them in just about everything. I do use zoodles and spaghetti squash once in a while, but these noodles are so dang good and SO low in carbs that I can't help it. I buy them by the case!!

FAQS ABOUT THE BEST KETO LASAGNA


Can I make this with ground chicken or turkey? Yes, just use ground chicken or turkey when you make the Italian sausage and another pound in the lasagna. If possible get dark meat or a mix to add a bit of fat or it could be a little dry.

Can this keto lasagna be frozen? Yes, this is one of my fave meal prep recipes because you can freeze before OR after you bake it. If freezing before you will want to defrost the lasagna in the fridge and then continue on with the cooking instructions. If you want top bake from frozen the time will vary depending on your oven. The baking time will be almost double.

How do I store leftover keto lasagna? Place the leftover lasagna in an airtight container. It will keep in the refrigerator for up to 4 days and in the freezer for about 3 months.

Last thoughts about Keto Lasagna


As I mention in the FAQ section above, this is one of my favorite meal prep ideas. I will make at least one a month and pop it in my freezer so on one of those nights that I don't feel like making a big mess in the kitchen, or I am not feeling well, I can pop this into the oven, make up a side salad, and dinner it done!

As I also mentioned, this is a fabulous dish to have in the freezer for the nights you have keto and non-keto peeps dining with you. It will blow their minds that ket o food can taste this good!

I also love to freeze single servings of it for the hubs to take to work. I take them out of the freezer the day before so they can defrost, then send them with him to work for a nice hot and hearty lunch that is perfect for a cool fall or winter day.
