How to Make this Keto Spaghetti Casserole?

The filling of this recipe is quite simple to make. It features ground beef along with the cheese and sauce. All you have to do is to cook the beef until it’s brown. Then, throw in a dash of Italian seasonings and a little bit of garlic powder. If you don’t have Italian seasonings, you can go for a combination of basil and oregano instead.

And don’t forget the sprinkle of garlic powder – it adds a nice garlicky touch to the overall recipe. If you want to go an extra step, try roasting a bulb of garlic until it gets caramelized and sticky. It brings out the complex flavor in the dish along with a savory smell. Yum! You must try this out!

If you want, you can also add some diced onions to the recipe. Even in small quantities, onions add a nice flavor to the beef.

A secret tip for this recipe is that you can use any leftover chicken as well. The flavors might turn out a little different, but they will surely make for a hearty and comforting meal that the whole family can enjoy.

Keto Spaghetti Noodles

With this keto pasta recipe, you can try many different types of noodles. You can use hearts of palm noodles, zucchini noodles, spaghetti squash, shirataki noodles, or any other low-carb noodles you like. With every option, you’ll experience a different edge to the keto baked spaghetti.

In this recipe, I have used hearts of palm noodles because they hold up the best in the dish. They don’t get soggy like zucchini noodles. They don’t have the rubbery feel or strange smell of shirataki noodles. And, best of all, these keto pasta noodles are gluten-free, unlike wheat-based noodles. So, you don’t have to think of your waistline before indulging in this pasta!

If you don’t have hearts of palm noodles, you can also go for zucchini noodles. They are a great low-carb alternative too. Many people love the texture and flavor they add to the dish. But do keep in mind that they can be a little watery as compared to other pasta.

Shirataki noodles are another great substitute for regular spaghetti. They are made with konjac flour or tofu. They look just like real spaghetti noodles and have the delectable texture of rice noodles. Low in calories and carbs, they make for a versatile alternative to regular pasta.

Pasta Sauce

If you want to keep this recipe low on carbs, make sure that you use a low carb pasta sauce. You can go for brands like Rao’s or Yo Mama Marinara Sauce. Both brands offer low carb and sugar-free marinara sauce. If you cannot find low carb marinara sauce, you can opt for tomato sauce too. But do keep an eye on the labels to see if there is an added sugar in the sauce.

If you want to add some creaminess to the pasta sauce, try adding a spatter of light sour cream to it. It adds a nice layer of richness to the overall flavors of the dish, making everyone wonder about the ingredients.

Freeze it For Later

The best thing about this dish is that it is freezer friendly. You can cook up the ground beef, assemble the casserole and then put it in the freezer for later. It can be frozen for up to 3 months.

To bake from frozen, bake it at 350 degrees for about 45-50 minutes. You can also reheat the pasta on the stovetop from thawed. As the sauce gets warmed up, it will defrost the spaghetti quickly and it will be keto spaghetti ready to eat!
