This keto lasagna is comforting and delicious, and tastes like the real thing! Layers of low carb lasagna noodles, meat sauce, ricotta cheese, and plenty of mozzarella cheese, it’s keto comfort food at it’s finest!
For the keto lasagna noodles
- 8 ounces cream cheese
- 2 cups mozzarella cheese shredded
- 1/2 cup parmesan cheese
- 3 large eggs
For the lasagna
- 1 large onion chopped
- 1 clove garlic minced
- 1 lb ground beef
- 3/4 cup marinara sauce
- 1 1/2 cups ricotta cheese
- 1 1/2 cups mozzarella cheese shredded
Preheat the oven to 180C/350F. Line a large baking sheet with parchment paper and set aside.
In a microwave safe bowl, add your cream cheese, mozzarella cheese, and parmesan cheese, and microwave in 30 second spurts, until the cheese has mostly melted. Add the eggs and whisk together, until a smooth batter remains.
Transfer the batter onto the lined sheet and bake for 15 minutes, until the edges are firm. Remove at let cool.
In a non-stick pan, add some oil on medium heat. Once hot, add the onions and garlic and saute for 5 minutes. Add the ground beef and mix for 3 minutes, before adding the marinara sauce. Continue cooking for a further 5 minutes. Remove from the heat.
Start assembling the lasagna. In an 8 x 8-inch pan, cover it completely with tin foil. Slice the keto lasagna sheets into 6 even pieces. Place two pieces on the bottom of the pan, followed by a 1/2 cup ricotta cheese, a third of the vegetarian bolognese sauce, and a 1/2 cup of the mozzarella cheese. Repeat the process until the entire lasagna is assembled.
Place the assembled into the oven and bake for 30-35 minutes, or until the tops are golden brown and the sauce is bubbling. Remove from the oven and let cool for 5 minutes, before serving.
