Keto Spaghetti alla Carbonara

Keto Recipes > Dinner

Carbonara is an Italian staple. While you may not be able to have the delicious carby version, you can definitely make a similar keto kind!

For this recipe, you will need shiritaki noodles. You can find them in the grocery store alongside the tofu. If you can’t find it, don’t fret! You can also use zucchini noodles, cucumber noodles, or even Palmini noodles (although, that’s a bit pricey.)

One trick with carbonara is you have to follow the recipe to a ‘T.’ If you don’t, you could end up with a very eggy carbonara, which is not at all tasty! If you find that when you add your eggs to the pasta, that they separate and look scrambled – then you’re pasta is too hot. You want to make sure the noodles are very warm when you add the mix in. If you’re carbonara turns out a little watery, put it all back on the stove on and stir over low heat until it thickens. Just make sure it doesn’t scramble.
