Share to save for later!

When you think about carbonara, the first thing that comes to your mind is probably all the carbs pasta has. However, if you make Shirataki Carbonara like what you’re about to learn today, you can pretty much skip all the carbohydrates!

To make carbonara keto friendly, you can either make the pasta out of zucchini or use shirataki noodles. I made a similar recipe using zucchini before – you can check my Keto Zucchini Carbonara recipe for more tips.

Shirataki noodles have many different names such as konjac noodles, konnyaku noodles or miracle noodles. This type of noodles is made from konjac yam, an Asian plant, which has very low calories and digestible carbohydrates and little flavor.

Since we will use a raw egg for the keto carbonara sauce, you should be very careful when preparing it so it doesn’t end up eggy and become big pieces like scrambled egg. For this, you just have to make sure that your carbonara pasta is not too hot, but warm enough.

When you know how to make pasta low carb, there’s no reason to avoid pasta on keto diet.

How to Make Low Carb Carbonara Using Shirataki Noodles

Prepare the Bacon: In a medium frying pan over medium heat, cut the bacon into small pieces and fry until crispy.

Cook the Noodles: Add the shirataki noodles and minced garlic to the pan with the bacon. Season with a pinch of salt and pepper. Cook for about 5 minutes, stirring frequently to separate the noodles.

Make the Sauce: In a separate bowl, whisk together the eggs and Parmesan cheese.

Combine: Once the noodles are cooked, remove them from the heat and transfer to a bowl. Quickly pour the egg and cheese mixture over the hot noodles, stirring swiftly and gently to combine without cooking the eggs into a scramble.
