Keto Lasagna Noodles
Lately, I’ve been obessed with using hearts of palm noodles as a low carb noodle substitute in my recipes. Hearts of palm noodles are the closest keto noodle replacement that I have tried that tastes like a regular noodle. They are low in carbs and are made up of only one ingredient, hearts of palm.
The brand of hearts of palm keto noodles that I use is by Natural Heaven. These noodles are fantastic. They are easy to prepare and don’t have a funky smell like shirataki noodles. Natural Heaven’s Hearts of Palm Lasagna Noodles are fully cooked, gluten-free and shelf stable.
Are Tomatoes Keto?
Yes! Tomatoes are allowed on the keto diet in moderation. Sure there are some carbs in tomatoes. One medium tomato has 4 g net carbs in it. When I use tomatoes in recipes, I’m only using a small amount for flavor. In this beef skillet lasagna recipe, we use 14 oz of crushed tomatoes and 1/2 cup of tomato sauce. Forteen ounces of crushed tomatoes has 20 grams net carbs and 1/2 cup of tomato sauce has 8 grams net carbs. This lasagna recipe makes around 8 servings so that equates to 3.5 grams of net carbs per serving coming from the tomatoes. What’s a lasagna without tomatoes? To me, it’s worth the 2 grams of carbs for that rich tangy tomato flavor.
Some store bought pasta sauces can contain added sugars. That’s why I use crushed tomatoes and tomato sauce in this low carb lasagna recipe. You could also make homemade keto marainara sauce if you are looking for an easy keto option you can make ahead of time that doesn’t contain sugars.
Keto Beef Lasagna
Traditionally lasagna recipes use beef and sometimes a little bit of sausage or ground pork to produce a hearty, meaty lasagna. This recipe for skillet lasagna is adaptable though. If you only have ground beef, you can use ground beef. Even if you only have a pound of ground beef, just only add one pound. You can use all ground sausage or ground chicken in this easy keto dinner recipe too! If you are vegetarian, you can completely omit the meat and just add more spinach or your favorite vegetables like mushrooms, onions and zucchini. There are many different options to create besides a low carb beef lasagna.
One Pot Recipe
As a busy working mom, I love recipes that come together quickly and only use one pot to make. We have an active family and after I get off work we have about an hour before we are off to the next activity during the weeknight. I rely on easy keto dinner recipes that don’t take a lot of time and effort to prepare.
One pot dishes, like this keto skillet lasagna recipe, are ideal because all the ingredients can be toss together in one pan. You don’t need to drag out other equipment or more dishes. This cuts down on the amount of clean up you have to do after dinner.
One of my other favorite one pan skillet recipes is Keto Pizza Chicken. All of your favorite pizza toppings are piled on chicken thighs and braised for several minutes.
