Keto Pasta Sauce

With a wide variety of Keto sauces, it is not always easy which one to pick? Especially when you get additional great choices of Keto Pasta or Noodles Substitutes to go with it. 

For that reason, I have tried to make it as easy as possible for you and picked it all myself. 

I have searched which sauce goes the best with which types of Pasta, Noodles, or Spaghetti. It all depends on the thickness of the sauce and consistency.

And therefore we do have Keto Marinara Sauce with Ribbon Pasta, Bolognese Sauce with Homemade Keto Spaghetti, Alfredo pasta Noodles or Lasagna Bolognese. 

Homemade Low Carb Pasta

For this Pasta Carbonara recipe, I have chosen our Homemade Low Carb Pasta made with Psyllium Fiber. 

This pasta substitute, I believe brings the best out of the classic flavors of this low-carb carbonara sauce and moves it to the next level. 

As the noodles are a tiny bit thicker than our Keto Egg Noodles, they do soak up a bit of sauce in and the flavor of the whole dish intensifies. 

Additionally, raw eggs can only cook properly, if the shape and the thickens of the pasta are large enough.

What Keto Pasta Recipe or Noodles can you use?

Even though  I have picked Psyllium Pasta for this recipe, but you can go wild and choose one of our Pasta Alternatives. Whether it will be Spaghetti, Gnocchi, Pasta, or any of the Vegetable Noodles, I am sure your family’s low-carb dinner would be a blast.

You can even make the popular Keto Carbonara Zoodles or Keto Carbonara Cauliflower. 

And why not alternate the various choices we have with this Keto Recipe. 

How Many Carbs are in Carbonara Pasta?

With our recipe you get a perfect 4 portions, that will fill you up fully.
For a full portion of pasta together with the sauce, you get 2 grams of net carbs, which is actually outstanding, taking into consideration, how this Keto meal will fill you up.

What goes with Pasta Carbonara?

As most eat Keto Pasta Carbonara on its own, there are still some, who do prefer to have an additional side to it.

You can pick from:

Bacon

Before I start with the Full Recipe, I have to mention Bacon.

Bacon is one major ingredient in this recipe that gives you that perfect flavor as well as crunchiness. 

Bacon in our Keto or Low carb Lifestyle is a must in our fridge at all times and you can make unbelievable dishes with it.

Just look at this Tiktok Viral Twisted Bacon Snack. Unreal. 

I have already made so many recipes, bacon is involved, one would not believe.

From our ever-so-popular Nachos, through Bacon Keto Burger up to the Brussel Sprouts Cups sprinkled with this crunchy goddess. 

Wait. Do you know what is my next plan? I am going to make the best Keto Bread filled with bacon. That would be a hit at first sight. Trust me. I just need to find some time to develop the best ever Keto Bacon Bread. 

What is your favorite food to eat with bacon?

Let me know. I am really interested.

It is very easy to make low-carb pasta with Psyllium Husk Fiber.

All you have to do is put all of the ingredients is into the magic bullet or any of the blenders you have.

Blend it all together until a smooth consistency and pour onto the baking sheet covered with parchment paper.

Bake for 8 to 10 minutes, let it cool and roll into a loaf.

Cut into preferred slices.

Third Step: Keto Pasta Carbonara Ingredients

For our pasta carbonara sauce, you would need egg yolks. 

Leftover Egg Whites could be used in our Ice Cream Cone Recipe.

For the bacon, cut it into small square pieces. 

I have used Pancetta Bacon, but you can use any bacon you prefer or use it regularly.

Grate your Parmesan cheese on a greater. Please do not buy already grated Parmesan cheese or any of the cheeses as they always contain starch so they don’t stick together in the packages.

Fourth Step: Whisk Egg Yolks together with Parmesan Cheese

In a small bowl whisk both of the egg yolks.

Into it add your Parmesan cheese and mix it all together.

Keep a bit of extra grated parmesan on the side for topping. 

Put it aside to use for later on.

Sixth Step: Add Pasta and Parmesan Egg mixture and Black Pepper

Once your bacon is fully cooked, add your pasta and mix together.

Switch off the heat as raw egg yolks might scramble. 

Into it, add the Parmesan Eggs mixture you have prepared beforehand and add 1 teaspoon of black pepper.

Seventh Step: Mix All

Mix it all together.

Make sure all the sauce is fully combined with your keto pasta.

If your keto pasta sauce seems to be extra dry, you can add a few tablespoons of bone broth or plain water.

Top it up with extra grated parmesan and serve immediately.

 Tips and Tricks:

  • Egg Mixture – add after all is cooked. No need to cook further, otherwise your eggs will scrumble. Heat will still cook them fully. 
  • Pasta too dry – add few spoons of broth in
  • More Protein – add chicken and transform this dish into Chicken Carbonara
  • Egg Whites left – use them for our Keto Ice Cream Cones
  • Parmesan Cheese – Grate your Parmesan cheese on a greater. Please do not buy already grated Parmesan cheese or any of the cheeses as they always contain starch so they don’t stick together in the packages.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS AND ANSWERS

Can I use Mozzarella as a Substitute for Parmesan?

You could certainly use mozzarella cheese instead of Parmesan in Carbonara Sauce. It will not be as the original Carbonara sauce is, but it will still be extra delicious.

How do you store Keto Pasta Carbonara?

This keto Pasta Carbonara is best served immediately.

But you can store it in a glass container in your fridge for up to 3 days. 

Anything longer, I would suggest freezing it.

Can you freeze Carbonara Pasta?

You can freeze this Keto Carbonara no cream Pasta in your freezer. Place it into the Mason Jar or any glass container and freeze. 

Take it out of the freezer the night before whenever you are ready to consume.

Let the pasta thaw naturally and warm it up before serving.
