Craving pasta on a keto diet? This low carb alternative to pasta is definitely going to satisfy all your cravings. It’s probably one of the best and easy to make low carb egg noodles you can try, but I also love zucchini noodles, shirataki noodles, or spaghetti squash.

Yes, you read it right. With this delicious recipe, you can still enjoy pasta if you are on a keto diet. Not only do these low carb keto pasta noodles taste similar to regular noodles, but they also have a great al dente texture, and it’s a fantastic way to eat pasta without the extra carbs.

Is Pasta Keto-Friendly?

No, regular pasta/ egg noodles are not keto-friendly because they contain high carbohydrate ingredients such as white flour. But, no worries, it’s easy to make homemade keto pasta that tastes similar to classic noodles. 

To give you an idea, regular pasta typically contains about 33 grams of carbohydrates per 100 grams, making it unsuitable for a keto diet focused on low carb intake.

Ingredients For The Best Keto Noodles Recipe 

I love recipes that require only a few ingredients and are extremely delicious. And e low carb keto pasta noodles are one of them; you will only need two ingredients you probably already have in the kitchen:

keto pasta ingredients lowcarbspark
  • Mozzarella Cheese – make sure that you use pre-shredded part-skim, not regular mozzarella that holds too much moisture.
  • Egg Yolks – egg yolks are used to hold and bind everything together. They also give great color to the pasta. Make sure to use yolks from large eggs. You can use leftover egg whites to make keto cloud bread.

Some other recipes call for xanthan gum or cream cheese, but my recipe requires just 2 easy ingredients.

How To Make Easy Keto Pasta Noodles

Making and enjoying pasta has never been easier during a keto diet. But, even the most unskilled people in the kitchen can make keto-friendly pasta. Here is everything you have to do:

how to make keto pasta noodles step by step
  1. Melt the cheese – Melt the mozzarella in a large mixing bowl using a microwave or a double boiler. Make sure the cheese is fully melted. 
  2. Add the egg yolks over the mozzarella cheese and mix well using a spatula or wooden spoon until the dough forms.
  3. Roll the dough – Place the dough onto a sheet of parchment paper. Place another sheet on top. Using a rolling pin, roll the dough until it is quite thin. Refrigerate for about 30 minutes.
  4. Cut into noodles – After 30 minutes, remove the dough from the fridge and cut the dough into a pasta shape using a pizza slicer.
  5. Cook pasta – In a large pot over medium heat, bring water to a boil. Add the noodles and cook for about 30 seconds.
  6. Drain the water, and serve noodles with your favorite sauce. Easy, right?

Tips For Making The Best Keto Pasta

  • The secret to obtaining that thin and smooth texture of the pasta is to distribute the batter as thinly as possible and evenly.
  • You may also add a pinch of xanthan gum to the keto pasta recipe to give the pasta more firmness.
  • When mixing the two ingredients, you have to make sure that the mozzarella is cold because otherwise, the eggs will cook.
  • It’s critical to keep the low-carb pasta refrigerated. The colder the noodles are, the better they keep their shape.
  • If the pasta dough is too sticky, refrigerate for 20 minutes first, then roll and refrigerate again. 
  • Overcooking the pasta will cause the noodles to break apart and dissolve into the water. 30 seconds is all you need!

Serving Ideas 

  • With a Side Salad: Pair your pasta with a fresh, leafy green salad dressed in a light vinaigrette to add some crunch and freshness to your meal.
  • Protein Topping: Add pan seared chicken, shrimp skewers, or air fryer salmon on top for a protein boost that complements the pasta beautifully.
  • Roasted Vegetables: Serve alongside roasted vegetables like broccoli, zucchini, or bell peppers for a nutritious and colorful side.
  • Cheesy Goodness: Sprinkle with extra grated Parmesan or pecorino cheese for a cheesy kick.
  • Alfredo Sauce: Creamy and rich, perfect for a luxurious meal.
  • Pesto: Fresh and herby, bringing a burst of flavor.
  • Marinara Sauce: Tangy and tomato-based, a classic choice.
  • Bolognese sauce: My easy bolognese sauce recipe is hearty and filling.
  • Topped with Fresh Herbs or Cheese: Enhances flavor and adds a finishing touch.

Can I Make Keto Pasta Ahead Of Time?

Sure, you can make keto noodles ahead of time and boil them anytime you want to enjoy a fresh pasta dish.

Just prepare them as we did in this recipe, and after you cut them into thin strips, transfer them to an airtight container. Refrigerate until ready to cook.

How Can I Store Keto Pasta Noodles

  • Fridge: Store uncooked in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 5 days.
  • Freezer: you can also freeze noodles for up to two months.
