Keto Lasagna Recipe 

If you love Italian food, this one's for you. Of course, many Italian dishes have a lot of pasta and carbohydrates. But, this keto recipe works perfectly as an alternative so you can still enjoy a nice lasagna. This is a great keto-friendly dinner recipe that we think the whole family will love.

For this recipe, we actually repurposed an older recipe you might remember for keto cauliflower wraps. This recipe is very versatile and works perfectly as pasta noodles! We made a few small tweaks to the original recipe, and you really won't believe how well it works in this lasagna.

The trick with these noodles is to squeeze all of the water out of the cauliflower. You can add some seasoning to the noodles or leave them plain. This recipe has ground pork and ground beef in it with a wonderful three cheese blend. If you want to make a vegetarian version, be sure to steam the vegetables and squeeze the water out first. If you don't, the lasagna will be runny.

Noodles (Use the Cauliflower Wrap recipe, but double it.)

Doubled recipe:

1 head of cauliflower or 4 cups riced

½ tsp salt

2 clove minced garlic

4 eggs

Set the oven to 375 F, to cook both the noodles and the whole lasagna.

Steam cauliflower in a pot until totally soft, then drain.  Put cauliflower in a thin dish towel and squeeze to get all the water out. (careful if hot).  Important to get most of the water out.

Put Cauliflower in a bowl with all other ingredients, and mix.  Once mixed together, use an infusion blender to mix into a smooth creamy liquid.  (you can also use a blender or food processor)

Line two baking sheets with parchment.  Pour liquid into baking sheets, splitting it evenly between the two pans.  Spread the liquid evenly and thinly over the pan, working to leave no bare spots on the parchment. (I use a dough scraper)

Bake for 15 minutes, until dry and pliable.  Not shiny or wet.  Let cool for just a few minutes.  Cut with a knife or pizza cutter, the long way, to make about 4, 4” wide strips.  Peel them off the paper carefully when time to use, and place just as you would cook pasta noodles.



1 pound of ground pork

1 pound of ground beef (of course you can use spicy sausage or any of your favorite meats.

Brown in a pan, adding a little garlic.  Drain grease if needed.  Set meat aside.



1 Cup Gruyere Cheese shredded

2 Cup Ricotta drained

2 cup mozzarella shredded

1 cup pecorino Romano grated

Italian seasoning

Fresh basil

Mix cheese and spices together  ( I find the cheeses are very salty and I don’t need to add extra salt to the recipe)


Putting it all together: 

Oven at 375 F

You will need two jars worth of sauce, whether you make it or buy it.

In a large baking dish, put a small amount of your favorite marinara (or white) sauce on the bottom of the dish just to make it wet.

Then lay down your lasagna (cauliflower) noodles the long way,  to cover to bottom.  Next spread some meat, then the cheese mix on top of that.  Then add some sauce.  Repeat the next layer with

Noodle, meat, cheese, sauce.  And again noodle, meat, cheese, sauce. On the top put the cup of Pecorino Romano. And some fresh basil.

Cover with foil, but the baking dish on a parchment or foil covered baking sheet (it will drip over) and cook for about 45 min.  Uncover and cook  for 10 more min.  Then turn your broiler on and while watching it, broil the top cheese to brown it.


Pull from the oven and let it set for 20 minutes.  If you cut into it right away, it may be very watery, but if it rests the water will soak back into the lasagna. Top with some fresh basil and Enjoy!!!
