This low carb, keto lasagna recipe is easy to make and tastes just like the real thing. In fact, over the years, I have been told many times that it should be called “Better Than the Real Thing” lasagna. When I was first starting a low carb, ketogenic lifestyle, I really wanted a low carb and gluten free pasta substitution. But at the time, they were really hard to find, and the keto pasta recipes that I could find, we just plain no good! I was tired of wasting food trying low carb recipes that fell flat. Sound familiar? I knew I had to set out to make my own low carb, real food versions. There were two recipes that I immediately knew I wanted to make – a low carb mac and cheese and a low carb lasagna. So, I did exactly that. They were two of the very first recipes I ever wrote for this site and 6 years later, they are still among the most popular.
The first time I made this keto lasagna, I served it to Jon without telling him that it was an impasta (get it? impasta?) and he had no idea. Once I told him, he was even more impressed. It is low carb comfort food at it’s finest. Although it does take a little meal prep work, it is definitely worth it to have a healthier version that you can eat whenever you want.
You can even make the low carb noodles in advance and freeze them. Having the noodles done ahead of time makes for a quick and easy low carb meal. Perfect for those busy weeknights. If you want to go a step further, you can even swap out the low carb marinara sauce and ground beef in this recipe for my Low Carb Hearty Tomato Meat Sauce Recipe. I like to make a double batch of that sauce and portion it out into individual freezer meals so that I always have it on hand. If you have a stash of the noodles and the sauce in the freezer at all times, this meal comes together so quickly. This is a great example of why I talk about the importance of food prep in my low carb and gluten free meal plans. Spend one day a week batch cooking and prepping and then it is smooth sailing for the rest of the week!
I’ll even let you in on a little secret. about the “noodles” in this recipe. They also make for an amazing nut free pizza crust. Don’t believe me? Check it out for yourself. Low Carb Nut Free Pizza Crust
