KETO LASAGNA WITH NOODLES!

K


Just made this recipe. It looks beautiful. Waiting to let it cool down a little before we dig in. It smells delicious and I love the flavor and texture of the noodle. I saw on previous comments about trying it as a pizza crust. I think that may work. I’m going to try that!

Ingredients:

Noodles:

  • 2 eggs
  • 4 oz cream cheese, softened
  • 1/4 cup Parmesan cheese, grated (I used half real parmesan and half dried)
  • 1 1/4 cup mozzarella cheese, shredded (130g)
  • Pinch of each: majoram, thyme, rosemary
  • 1/2 tsp basil
  • 1/2 tsp oregano
  • 1/4 tsp garlic powder
  • 1/4 tsp onion powder
  • 1/4 tsp salt

Filling:

  • 1 lb ground beef
  • 1 1/2 cups of lower-carb pasta sauce (I used “Classico Tomato Basil” but added some salt, splenda and basil to taste )
  • 3/4 cup (90g) mozzarella cheese, shredded
  • 6 tbsp 2% cottage cheese
  • 1/3 chopped onion
  • 1oz finely chopped green pepper
  • 1 minced garlic clove
  • 1/2 tsp chili pepper flakes (optional)
  • 1 tsp dried oregano
  • 1 tsp dried basil
  • Pinch of each: majoram, thyme, rosemary
  • Salt and pepper to taste

DIRECTIONS

Noodles

  1. Preheat oven to 375° Line a 9×13 baking dish with tinfoil sprayed with oil or parchment paper.
  2. In mixing bowl, using a hand mixer, cream together cream cheese and eggs.DSC_0954
  3. Next, add Parmesan cheese and spices. Mix to combine.DSC_0959
  4. Fold in mozzarella cheese and mix until well incorporated.
  5. Spread the mixture into the baking dish, forming an even layer. DSC_0957
  6. Bake for 20-25 minutes.
  7. When the “noodles” are done baking, cool in the fridge for about 20 minutes and then cut into thirds. This makes three perfectly sized “noodle” layers for an 8.5 X 4.5 X 2.5 loaf pan.

For The Filling

  1. In a large skillet over medium-high heat, combine ground beef, onion, peppers and  your spices. Cook until the meat is browned.DSC_0966
  2. Drain excess fat from pan and add ¾ cup of your sauce to meat. Reduce heat to low and simmer for 10 minutes.DSC_0981
  3. Putting It All Together
  4. Pour ¼ cup marinara sauce into bottom of loaf pan. Top with the first “noodle” layer
  5. Layer a third of the ground beef mixture. Top with ¼ cup mozzarella cheese and 3 tbsp cottage cheese, and cover with another “noodle” layer. Repeat these steps.
  6. Cover the top “noodle” layer with remaining ground beef, and mozzarella cheese.DSC_0990
  7. Sprinkle a little parmesan and basil over top. Bake for 20 minutes. Enjoy!
