Ingredients Needed to Make Keto Tuna Noodle Casserole
- Sour cream
- Dried onion flakes
- Canned tuna
- Garlic cloves
- Salt and pepper
- Nutritional yeast
- Canned mushrooms
- Chopped broccoli and frozen peas
- A double batch of these keto pasta noodles (I make them a day or two ahead of time)
- 2 leftover keto Chaffles or 1/2 recipe of these Keto Croutons or 2 slices low carb bread of your choice
Can You Eat Peas on Keto?
While high in Fiber, pea are also high in carbs and most people generally avoid them on Keto.
However, this low carb tuna noodle casserole recipe replaces most of the traditional peas with chopped broccoli and you can just leave out the small amount of peas if you like.
If you add 1/2 cup of peas to the recipe it adds about 7 net carbs to the entire recipe. But I changed it to 2 tbsp peas, just enough to get the feel of it!
