11 Keto Lasagna’s
One of the challenges with starting on the keto lifestyle is that it may sound simple to begin with, but then gets more complex as you start paying more attention to ingredients and preparations of your favorite foods. But the keto diet doesn't necessarily mean that you have to give up all your favorite foods. There are keto ways to rethink your ingredients and recipes to omit unwanted ingredients, but still enjoy all the flavors you crave.
In fact, even one of the world's most decadent foods, lasagna, can be easily prepared in keto-friendly ways. Keto lasagna has all the rich flavors and complex textures you want for complete pasta satisfaction. Here are some of the best recipes for keto lasagna.
This delicious lasagna recipe includes noodles made from grain-free, gluten-free, low carb dough to provide a real lasagna noodle flavor and texture. The grain-free noodles are prepared and layered with rich low-carb marinara sauce, cheeses, and fresh basil. The resulting flavor is rich and complex, and has all the meaty, cheesy texture you are looking for in a traditional lasagna.
For this lasagna, thin strips of zucchini are prepared and layered with fresh cheeses and a meaty sauce, for a grain-free, low-carb keto lasagna. The zucchini makes an effective textural and flavorful substitute for wheat-based pasta, without adding unwanted grains or refined carbohydrates. Fresh spinach adds extra flavor and nutrition, while Italian seasoning creates authentic lasagna flavors. It's delicious and satisfying.
#3 Grain-free Slow Cooker Lasagna
This grain-free lasagna recipe uses a slow cooker for simplicity and convenience. However, replacing traditional noodles with either zucchini or eggplant creates more liquid than can be cooked off in a slow cooker. They are best when grilled or broiled first to improve the final texture of the dish and avoid diluting the sauce. The extra step is worth it.
This delicious grain-free keto pesto lasagna has only eight ingredients and yet is bursting with flavor. It starts in a skillet and is finished in the oven, for melted, bubbly cheese, and is finished with a swirl of bright, fresh pesto sauce. Replacing the noodles with sliced eggplant creates a rich, meaty texture and you won't miss wheat noodles at all.
This keto lasagna recipe takes a little longer to build all the flavors, but the result is worth it. The “noodles” are made from a richly seasoned, baked cheese mixture that perfectly creates the texture of wheat noodles, but with flavors that enhance and complement the sauce. It's a meaty, cheesy, satisfying lasagna as comforting as the traditional lasagna you remember.
#6 Low-carb Keto Cabbage Lasagna
This low carb, keto lasagna recipe calls for long, slow simmering to properly build flavors and develop the richness of a true Italian meat sauce. The noodles are replaced with steamed cabbage leaves, which give the desired texture and consistency without the unwanted carbs. The homemade sauce is meaty and richly seasoned, and the finished lasagna is delicious and deeply satisfying.
Lasagna is a dish that is difficult to make in single servings, but this recipe offers a mug lasagna that is not only delicious and satisfying, but also low-carb and keto friendly. Even better, it needs only five ingredients, and takes five minutes to make in a microwave. It's the perfect way to satisfy your craving quickly and in small portions.
This eggplant and zucchini lasagna recipe is not only low-carb and keto friendly, but it also omits dairy if your diet limits dairy products. While you may think that cutting grain and cheese from lasagna won't result in a delicious, satisfying dish, this recipe proves otherwise. Garlic, mushrooms, tomatoes, and tamari add flavor, richness, and complexity to this satisfying lasagna dish.

This keto low-carb grain-free lasagna recipe uses sliced zucchini instead of noodles, and is delicious, satisfying, and packed with nutrition. Using Havarti cheese adds flavor complexity and a satisfying cheese melt over the top, for a decadent texture. It's easy to assemble ahead of time in a casserole, or in smaller ramekins, and freeze for a simple food-prep solution.
Combining lasagna with stuffed peppers makes a beautiful dish that will appeal to even those who aren't in the keto lifestyle. Stuffing peppers with the rich, meaty, cheesy lasagna filling is a great way to remove unwanted grains and carbohydrates without missing any of the flavors and textures you love. And it is a classy and elegant entree for any occasion.
Lasagna is one of the world's greatest dishes, popular in every country that has had the joy of experiencing it.
