Ingredients

  • Egg Yolk
  • Mozzarella Cheese - 1 Cup

Cooking Tools

Optional (adds more ingredients)

  • Garlic Powder

Instructions

  1. Place your 1 cup of mozzarella cheese and melt it in the microwave in a microwave-safe dish. In my microwave, I placed in for 20 seconds, stirred, then another 30 seconds for the cheese to melt. Microwave times vary so find the best option for your oven. You can also do this on the stove top.

  2. Next, separate out your egg whites from your egg yolk from the 1 egg. You will want to keep the egg yolk portion of the egg.
  3. After you have melted your cup of mozzarella cheese, drop in your egg yolk into your bowl of melted mozzarella cheese and mix together. If you are a lover of garlic, this is where you can mix in your garlic powder. I just sprinkle a little to get that garlicky taste into the keto noodles.

  4. Next, we are forming the keto noodles! Your keto pasta dough should be formed in a ball in the bowl. Smack it down on your counter, I put parchment down because this can become a sticky situation. Then I place a piece of parchment paper on top of the keto noodle dough.
  5. You will want to roll your keto pasta dough using a rolling pin. This will flatten it out. You will want to roll it until its around 1/8 of an inch thick.
  6. Next, grab a pizza cutter and start cutting long strips to form the keto noodles. You can cut the noodles as thick as you would like, I aim for around 1/2 inch wide.

  7. Here is the bummer - these noodles will need to go in the fridge for around 5 hours to set. This is worth it, so don't fret this. This process allows the moisture to be removed and will give your keto pasta the consistency of traditional noodles.
  8. After your keto pasta has sat in the fridge for 5 hours, remove. Drop your keto pasta into boiling water for just 30 seconds, that's all it takes.
  9. Next, after your pasta is cooked - run it under some cold water - this will help your noodles retain their shape.
  10. Last, top with your favorite pasta topping. This is perfect for adding a ground beef and tomato sauce topping, for a keto spaghetti dish.

Best Keto Friendly Pasta Sauces

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.

Pesto 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.

Alfredo Sauce

Enjoy the delicious creaminess of our keto alfredo sauce.

Don’t Forget the Keto Garlic Bread

If you read the headline keto garlic bread and said LIES, let me make sure that you saw our post on Sola bread! Make a delicious keto garlic bread using melted garlic butter spread on Sola bread then toasted. You are welcome.

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.)
