Low Carb and Keto Lasagna with Fathead Noodles

30 min Serves 8

Low Carb Keto Lasagna

Ingredients

Directions

1

Roll prepared "Fathead" dough very thinly on a baking sheet covered in parchment paper. Bake for 12-14 minutes at 400 degrees until slightly brown. Cut into long lasagna "noodles", and set aside.

2

Saute onion, bell pepper, and garlic with a little cooking oil in a large skillet.

3

Add both ground beef and sausage. Crumble and cook meat in the skillet.

4

Stir in marinara sauce.

5

In a small separate bowl stir ricotta cheese, egg, and fresh basil together.

6

Start compiling lasagna in a 9x13 casserole dish by adding sauce to the bottom, followed by a layer of ricotta mixture, shredded cheese and then the "noodles".

7

Repeat and then end with a layer of sauce and shredded cheese.

8

Bake covered with foil for 25 minutes on 375 degrees. Bake another 10 minutes uncovered. (Tip: Spray foil with non-stick spray FIRST to avoid the foil from sticking to the cheese while baking.)

9

Serve with additional chopped basil, if desired.

Love lasagna but not all the carbs?

What if I told you there IS a way to make a delicious Keto friendly version that actually tastes like REAL lasagna!? 😋 Plus, there isn’t any sort of veggie noodle involved. Awesome, right? 


Try making lasagna with strips of “fathead” dough to replace noodles. Just make a batch of this popular mozzarella cheese and almond meal based dough, then continue compiling your lasagna. Trust me – this is a genius idea!

Sometimes it’s hard to find meal ideas that the entire family will enjoy, especially when you are eating a certain way. This recipe does not disappoint! The kids will LOVE it too!


Make a delicious meat sauce on the stove using both sausage and ground beef. Then build layers of sauce, cheeses, and the keto friendly “noodles”. SO good.

This recipe is easy to adapt to whatever you and your family like by using different cheeses, spices, etc. For instance, my kids don’t care for ricotta, so I just used a small amount. You could even skip it or use cream cheese instead.


Tip: I used a low carb brand of Marinara sauce for convenience, but you could easily make your own low carb sauce simply by using crushed tomatoes, tomato paste and Italian herbs.

This Keto Lasagna tastes super close to traditional lasagna!

It’s really rich and on the dense side just like Fathead pizza, so you’ll likely want to eat a smaller slice because it’s very filling. I love that this is such a kid-friendly recipe too. Hooray!

Tip: This is a very large batch of lasagna and the leftovers will re-heat and/or freeze well.

    Oooh I’m excited!! Trying your pizza tonight!!!

    • Lina D

      Hooray! Let’s us know how it goes!

  2. Charity

    Cant wait to try the lasagna. Made the pizza and we love the fathead crust.

    • Lina D

      Oh nice! You’ll like this then!

  3. Jana

    I love that you are sharing these recipes. I ran to the local grocery store to get everything to make the pizza the other evening, I’ll be heading back to get this. Thank you!

    • Lina D

      Oh perfect! Enjoy 😉

  4. jane

    How long did this take?? Just curious as I want to make on a week night:)

    • Jen D

      She listed prep time as 30 min and cook time 35 min. That assumes the dough is already mixed and just needs to be rolled out so add some additional time to make the dough. For me I find lasagna from scratch is just a bit too labor/time intensive for a weeknight meal but of course that’s up to each individual to decide. I like to make it on a Sunday and then enjoy leftovers during the week. Hope that helps!

    • Lina D

      It did take me about an hour maybe more. You can always make the fathead noodles the day before, as a time saver.

    • Mel R.

      You could also cook the veggies & meat the night before, then toss with sauce the next night, to save a bit of prep time.

  5. emily97

    This looks so good! Thanks for sharing, I am going to put this on our meal plan for the week.

  6. Kristina

    The one thing I’m allergic to — almonds. :/ Anyone have a good substitute? I want to make the pizza.

    • Sallys

      other people commented you can use coconut flour on the fathead dough link. hope that helps.

    • Jac

      Coconut flour might taste a little too sweet (though w/ a small amount, maybe not). If you’re not allergic to all treenuts, maybe hazelnut or other nut meal/flour? Could also try flaxmeal (easy to grind your own from flax seeds) if it doesn’t cause you stomach problems.

    • hellfiregainz

      Make a chicken crust pizza. Puree 2 raw chicken breasts add an egg and some spices. Press flat onto a greased cookie sheet. Bake for 15 min 400 degree oven. Add topping and bake another 10 min.
      Seriously good.

      • Lina D

        Thanks for sharing! This is on our list to try!

      • Sallys

        WOW, THIS SOUNDS GREAT, AND IT WOULD BE WEIGHT WATCHERS FRIENDLY TOO! ZERO POINTS.

  7. Jessica C

    Love this!! I made cauliflower pizza crust yesterday and it was delicious! Can’t wait to try this!!! Keep the keto and low carb recipes coming!!!

    • Lina D

      Excellent! Enjoy 😉

    • Virginia

      Hey Jessica!

      What was your cauliflower crust recipe I tried one and it completely fell apart.

      TIA!

  8. Sallys

    Does anyone have an idea to make the fathead dough with no dairy? Maybe the daiya soy cheese? if anyone ever tried or has another idea for substitute, thanks in advance!

    • bettypage

      The cheese is what binds and holds it together, so not really any substitute for it

    This summer when my zucchini plant was producing a couple zucchini a day, I made lasagne with strips of zucchini that I had sliced on my mandolin. I needed to sweat some of the moisture from the zucchini so I sauteed them in my non stick pan (no oil) and then pressed them a bit between paper towels. I then layered the zucchini as I would the noodles and assembled the lasagne. Bake until bubble and let sit 10 minutes before serving. It was such a hit, I have made it at least 4 more times.

    • Jen D

      I love using zucchini and eggplant strips as noodles in lasagna too 🙂

    • Jac

      This also works w/ parsnips & turnips, peeled & thinly sliced.

  10. Diana

    Woo boo!! Keto!! I’m on day 5 and feel so pumped and energized!!! Can’t wait to make this recipe!! Keep the keto coming!!

  11. Meredith

    Oh thank you!!!😋

  12. llriddle

    sounds great. Will definitely try! The best non-noodle lasagna recipe I’ve ever had is https://www.skinnytaste.com/zucchini-lasagna/ . It is amazing & I think it tastes better than regular lasagna. It does take some time as you grill (inside or out) the lasagna noodles first – but definitely SOOO worth it!

    • Lina D

      Oh thanks for sharing!

  13. Helen in Meridian

    Am learning more and more about Keto and not yet jumped in. That dough sounds great but dh has tree nut allergies. Thanks for posting the coconut flour option. Will get brave after Valentine’s and Superbowl andOlympic orgies, and get my meal plans set.

  14. Amy

    Love these recipes, and can’t wait to try. Anything closer to the real deal is a big plus. I love zucchini, but it leaves a very watery lasagna. Thanks!!

  15. Maria

    What’s the carb count?

  16. shawn

    what is the actual carb count for this lasagna?

    • Dawn

      Yes, where is the carb count for these recipes? Folks can say it’s keto all day but I guess I’ll have to figure it out myslef

  17. Patrick

    • Jennifer (Hip2Save Sidekick)

      You are welcome! Glad you loved it, emily97!

  19. Jana Cops

    Do you know if this would freeze?

    • Lina D

      Yes it seems like everything would freeze well! It’s so great as leftovers too. 😀

  20. Joni

    Made the pizza twice just made the lasagna. Not only did my husband love them both my picky teenagers loved them. Will definitely make both again. Fat head dough also makes great cinnamon rolls

    • Lina D

      Great! Thanks for sharing!

  22. yonawrites

    I am so excited about this…I cannot wait to make it.

  23. rosie

    Do you have to cook the noodles before using them in the lasagna or do you put the raw noodles in the lasagna and then bake?

    • Lina D

      So yes, you would need to bake the fathead dough, as directed , and then cut it into long strips as “noodle” shapes. Then compile lasagna. Hope that helps!

  24. Susan Grier

    Making this right now and it smells awesome, I agree it takes a bit longer but the other steps can be done ahead of time, will let ya know how it tastes.

  25. Sheila

    My husband has recently been diagnosed with diabetes. He is a very picky eater. I fixed this pizza recipe with a cheese blend. It was very filling and so delicious.
    Tonight I’m going to make lasagna for tomorrow nights dinner and try using the fathead dough for noodles. I can’t wait to see how it turns out.

    • Lina D (Hip2Save Sidekick)

      Oh that’s so wonderful. Enjoy the lasagna!

  26. Michelle

    AMAZING!! I cut the recipe in half and cooked in a loaf pan. Absolutely Delicious! Thank you!

    • Lina D (Hip2Save Sidekick)

      Great idea! I’m so glad you liked it!

  27. Garrick L McDowell
