Buon giorno! 👋
Today I’m going to show you how to make an easy Keto spaghetti sauce that takes about 15 minutes to whip up. A classically prepared tomato sauce is typically simmered all afternoon, but you really only need 10 minutes for a very passable sauce.
So this Keto pasta sauce is quite quick.
Let’s talk about how to make it.
- extra virgin olive oil
- shallots or onions
- crushed tomatoes
- black pepper
- dried basil
- dried oregano
- dried parsley
- red wine vinegar
- Swerve Granular
Fresh herbs 🍃
Now, like I said, the recipe is meant to be speedy quick, so it calls for dried herbs. But if you’d like to add fresh herbs, then I won’t stop you. Just use 1 tablespoon of the fresh herb instead of 1 teaspoon of the dried herb. You can chop up the fresh basil, or just throw the leaves in whole. You’ll need to fuss with taking the leaves off of the oregano stems, but you can chop up the parsley.
It might surprise you to see the Keto sweetener Swerve on the list of ingredients. But that is actually the secret ingredient (that and love of course). Most tomato sauces use sugar to counteract and balance out the acidity of the tomatoes. We’ll do the same, but we’ll make it sugar-free.
Adding beef 🥩
It’s easy to make a poor man’s Bolognese sauce too. Just saute your onions and garlic in a large skillet instead of a saucepan and then add a pound of ground beef. Brown the ground beef, drain the fat if you like, and continue with the recipe. The Keto tomato sauce goes equally well with meatballs.
Here’s the recipe for a Keto spaghetti and meatballs.
The noodles 🍝
There is still the small matter of the spaghetti noodles to consider. Normal durum wheat-based pasta is out of the question, but there are a lot of low carb options out there.
The list includes:
- Shirataki noodles
- Edamame noodles
- Homemade egg noodles
- Homemade lupin flour noodles
- Homemade psyllium husk noodles
- Zoodles (zucchini noodles)
- Palmini noodles
- Great Low Carb Bread Co. noodles
- Carba-Nada noodles
- ImPASTAble noodles
