Keto macaroni and cheese

Ingredients

1 lb keto pasta 2 x 8 oz packages of macaroni

* See the notes.

1 cup of full-fat heavy cream

2 and 3/4 cups of shredded cheese. I used a combination of gruyere and cheddar for this recipe.

1 teaspoon salt to taste

pepper to taste, or one-half of a teaspoon

Instructions

Cook the keto pasta for around 10 to 12 minutes, or until it reaches the al dente texture.

Drain, then put to the side.

Place the heavy cream in a saucepan of appropriate size and set it to cook over medium heat.

Once it reaches a simmer, turn the heat down to a low setting.

After adding the shredded cheeses, seasonings, and a pinch of salt and pepper, allow the cheese to melt into the cream.

Stir until the mixture becomes thick and smooth.

After using strainer with the pasta, stir it into the cheese sauce, then turn off the heat.

Stir well to distribute everything, then serve at once.

Notes * The elbow pasta that we used was from Great Low Carb Bakery.

It is possible to use any type of low-carb pasta.

HOW TO STORE: Macaroni and cheese made with a keto diet should be kept in the refrigerator and covered at all times. Up to a week’s time, it will maintain its quality.

TO FREEZE: Place any leftovers that you want to save in a container that is not too deep, and then put it in the freezer for up to two months.

To rewarm, add one to two teaspoons of water or milk and heat in the microwave for thirty to forty seconds, or until the liquid is warm.

You could also reheat it on the stovetop, but you’ll need an extra quarter of a cup of liquid.

Easiest keto macaroni meal

Ingredients

2 cups of shredded mozzarella cheese 

Two room-temperature egg yolks 

2 cups of basil leaves

Instructions

In a microwave safe bowl, heat your mozzarella cheese until melted.

Wait two minutes while it cools down.

After incorporating the egg yolks with a whisk, shape the ingredients into a ball of dough.

After transferring the ball of dough onto a large baking pan that has been lined with parchment paper, bake the dough.

Then place another sheet of parchment paper on top, roll the dough out with a rolling pin until it is very thin.

Refrigerate for 30 minutes.

Take the dough out of the refrigerator and set it aside.

Make long, thin strips of dough by slicing it with a pizza slicer.

Refrigerate overnight.

Start the boiling process with a large saucepan of water.

After the water has returned to a boil, add the noodles and stir them for about a minute.

Take the pot off the heat, and then pour out the water.

Before transferring to bowls, give the pasta a quick rinse in water. And then top with the low-carb pasta toppings of your choice.

These would go great with keto catfish.

Notes

The uncooked form of pasta can be stored for up to a week without risk of spoilage.

It should be lightly covered with plastic wrap in order to prevent it from drying out.

Before replacing it, check that it has thoroughly defrosted and then proceed.

Another keto pasta variation

Ingredients 

1 cup (112g) of shredded mozzarella cheese in full fat

one huge egg yolk

One quarter teaspoon xanthan gum, optional

In a big bowl, combine xanthan gum and mozzarella cheese.

The cheese needs to be microwaved for about a minute to melt.

With a spatula, quickly form the cheese into a ball.

Use one hand to fold the cheese into itself and the other to stir with a spatula until the pasta dough is uniformly golden. Before adding the egg yolk, make sure the cheese is warm, not hot.

You should place the dough ball between two sheets of parchment paper that you prepare with cooking spray.

Roll out to a thickness of about 1/8 inch.

Use a pizza cutter and baking spray to make spaghetti-like strands out of the dough.

Place the spaghetti on a baking sheet and chill for at least 8 hours or overnight.

After cooling, separate the strands from one another.

Get a big pot two-thirds full of water. Increase heat to boil water.

When the water is boiling, add the pasta, and cook it for only one minute.

Shake out any extra water from pasta after washing it in water that is neither too hot nor too cold.

Pair these with keto crackers for a wonderful mouth feel
