Fat Bomb Pasta!
Every once in a while I come up with an idea that I just can’t let go. Megha hates when this happens, because no matter how much resistance she puts up I won’t take no for an answer! This low carb pasta dish has been in my mind for months now and I’ve been patiently waiting for the opportunity to make it. Finally, that opportunity came and I took full advantage of it. This low carb pasta dish is one of my favorite dishes and I even got Megha to admit that it was a really good dish 🙂
Pasta is Back On the Menu
Just about everyone loves pasta, but it happens to be one of the first things you have to write off when starting a ketogenic diet. For the first few months of eating a keto diet we just accepted this fact. As time wore on we started experimenting with different low carb noodles and eventually came up with a good preparation method that makes these noodles yummy! If you’ve tried shirataki noodles before you are probably aware that they smell and taste very similar to an earthworm(not that I’ve ever tasted one). There are steps you can take(which are detailed in the above video) to ensure these puppies come out extra tasty!
The Perfect Low Carb Pasta Sauce
After mastering the zero carb noodle, the rest was easy. Alfredo sauce and it’s variants are perfect for keto! We didn’t go traditional with this Alfredo sauce since we like to give things a spin of our own. We’ve now made this dish with Parmesan, Asiago, and Pecorino Romano cheese and I must say the Pecorino Romano version came out truly exceptional. All of them were good, so if you have one of the other cheeses available then you should definitely use that, but the Pecorino Romano was on point!
In our quest to make this dish as fatty as possible we opted for a nice Italian sausage here, but anything will work. Meatballs, chicken, really any sort of protein you can think of. Another way you could take this dish is the top it with some extra cheese and bake it in the oven for a nice baked low carb pasta dish. Give it a try and let us know what you think!
