Keto Friendly Pasta Sauces
Now that you have made your keto pasta noodles, what keto friendly pasta sauce are you going to top your noods with? Let’s look at a few keto pasta sauces that you can eat your keto noodles with
Ground Beef and Marinara
Make a traditional spaghetti sauce to eat with your noodles. Using ground beef, and my personal favorite keto marinara, Rao’s homemade marinara sauce.
Make a low carb keto pesto sauce or purchase a jar of pesto sauce. For a store bought pesto sauce, the Classico Pesto with basil has approximately 4 net carbs per 1/4 cup. Pesto sauce does not require large amounts for flavor.
Grilled Chicken and Garlic Butter
My favorite keto pasta meal with these low carb egg noodles is topping the noods with grilled chicken and melted garlic butter as the sauce. I am not too huge on marinaras. I should say, my stomach is not too huge on marinara sauce.

Questions about Keto Noodles
Here are common questions answered about making keto noodles.
Do I need to use flour to make keto pasta dough?
No flour or almond flour is needed to make this keto pasta dough recipe.
How many carbs in egg?
These is just under 1 carb in an egg.
Can I use to make a baked dish?
Yes, though note that most likely the noodles will not stay in noodle form when using in a baked dish. You may just end up with an extra cheesy dish. Since these keto egg noodles consist of just egg and cheese, expect the keto noodles to melt.
How many carbs in mozzarella (1 cup?)
In 1 cup there are approximately 2 net carbs in mozzarella cheese.
Do I have to refrigerate the keto noodles?
Yes, after making the keto noodle dough, you will need to refrigerate the dough for around 5 hours to draw out the moisture. This is what gives the keto pasta dough it’s shape.
How long do the keto pasta noodles last?
If you are wanting to make keto pasta noodles ahead of time for meal planning or a future meal, I would suggest making the dough and then refrigerating for up to 5 days. Don’t cook the keto pasta until you are ready to eat it. The noodles only take 30 seconds to cook!
Can I freeze the keto egg noodles?
I don’t see what you wouldn’t be able to freeze the keto egg noodles. I would suggest keeping the noodle dough on the parchment paper then placing in a freezer bag. Do NOT cook the noodles before putting in the freezer. I would thaw the noodles in the fridge before cooking (don’t cook the noodles frozen.)
