Easy Keto Skillet Lasagna

 
I’m always on the lookout for easy keto meals so when I saw  Easy Keto in 30 Minutes at my local Costco I grabbed it! The author Urvashi Pitre is a recipe blogger that I respect very much and I own some of her other cookbooks as well.
PS They ended up sending me a copy of the book so I will plan a giveaway for it in the near future, since I already owned it!
 
I chose Skillet Lasagna because I knew my family would love it and eat it. Who doesn’t love the taste of lasagna?!
 
This easy keto skillet lasagna has all the flavor of traditional lasagna but only a fraction of the work!
 

Ingredients you will need for this easy keto lasagna

  • Olive oil
  • ground beef
  • celery
  • onion and garlic
  • marinara sauce (my favorite is Rao’s homemade)
  • eggs
  • Lots of cheese! mozzarella, parmesan and ricotta
  • Italian seasoning

You will also want to use an oven proof skillet of some sort.  My favorite for this type of recipe is my 2 handled cast iron pan.  The second handle makes it so much easier to get in and out of the oven.

Tips and Tweaks for Making This Low Carb Skillet Lasagna

To me, one of the hallmarks of a great family recipe is to be able to change things around and it still turns out great!  I made some simple tweaks and I also have some ideas.

  • I made this with ground turkey and it was excellent! 
  • The recipe says 4 Servings but I was stuffed with 1/6 of the recipe.  You can easily feed 6-8 people with this if you also have a side salad and keto buns or keto pasta on the side.
  • I’ve already got plans to make this again and use cream instead of marinara for a white lasagna.

  1. Looks delicious and easy! Definitely going to try it soon. 🙂

    Did you ever try making it with a white sauce? How was it? Did you just use cream or did you add cream cheese?

    1. The white sauce was great! I just kind of patch it together using butter, some parmesan and cream, the heavy cream thickens up nicely!
