The best low carb lasagna recipe
This 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, keto 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 10 years later, they are still among the most popular.
Frequently Asked Questions
Yes, you can. In fact, it will speed up the prep time considerably when you are ready to assemble and bake the lasagna. 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 Hearty Tomato Meat Sauce and make that in advance also.
With this particular recipe, you could do either. You can do all of the assembly steps ahead of time, freeze it, and then bake it when you are ready to eat it. Alternately, you could fully cook it, freeze it, and then reheat it in the oven later.
To make a larger lasagna, simply double the recipe and instead of cutting each "noodle" into three equal parts, cut the noodles to fit the pan you are using.
