When I think about my favorite things about lasagna, of course my mind wanders to the gooey mozzarella, the creamy ricotta, the savory marinara and the perfectly seasoned meat.

We all know what's missing from my list...the noodles, of course.

But that's my point with this recipe...the rest of the ingredients are so overwhelmingly delicious, it's easy to forget the noodles completely. So why not create an easy, low carb lasagna recipe that's so good you won't feel like you're missing the noodles?

Sometimes noodle replacements are a really good idea, like in my Low Carb Taco Cabbage Skillet or my Keto Cheeseburger Helper recipes. The cabbage is a nutritious addition that adds a nice texture.

Same with my Easy Keto Lasagna, a white sauce lasagna that uses cauliflower as the "noodle" layer. It's a bit time intensive, but it is yummy!

But sometimes it's easier to ditch the noodles for an equally filling meal that eats more like a casserole.

Note: If you just can't ditch the noodles, definitely check out this recipe for low carb lasagna, it's really delicious!

What ingredients do I need for a Keto Lasagna Bake?

One of the best parts about this recipe is that the ingredients are so simple. All you for this completely mouthwatering dish need is:

  • Ground Beef
  • Italian Sausage
  • Ricotta Cheese (If you don't like this you can swap for cottage cheese. But adding seasoning to the ricotta, if you haven't before, might change your mind.)
  • Shredded Mozzarella Cheese
  • Grated Parmesan Cheese
  • Marinara Sauce (I prefer Rao's)
  • Chopped White Onion
  • Garlic Powder
  • Oregano

This Keto Lasagna Bake ditches the noodles, and it's so simple, you'll wonder why you didn't try it sooner. Sometimes simple is best, and that's exactly what this recipe is!

Ingredients

  • 1 lb Ground Beef
  • ½ lb Italian Sausage
  • ¼ cup chopped white onion
  • 1 ½ cup Marinara Sauce
  • ¾ teaspoon Garlic Powder, divided
  • 1 teaspoon Oregano, divided
  • ½ cup Ricotta Cheese
  • 1 cup Shredded Mozzarella, divided
  • ⅔ cup Parmesan Cheese, divided
  • Chopped parsley, for garnish (optional)

Instructions

  1. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees.
  2. In a 12-inch cast iron skillet (or other oven safe equivalent), brown the ground beef and ground sausage together over medium heat on the stovetop until no pink remains (about 15 minutes). Drain the excess fat and return to heat.
  3. Add the onion to the pan and saute with meat until it begins to soften, 3-5 minutes. Pour the sauce, ½ teaspoon oregano and ½ teaspoon garlic powder into the pan with the meat sauce and allow to simmer for 5 minutes.
  4. In a medium bowl, mix the ricotta, ½ cup of mozzarella, and ⅓ cup of the Parmesan. Add a bit of salt and pepper to taste and add the remaining oregano and garlic powder to the cheese mixture and fold until completely combined.
  5. Turn off the heat and spread the meat around the pan until it's an even layer. Place spoonfuls of the cheese mixture around the pan, pushing them down a bit with your spoon to the bottom of the pan.
  6. Sprinkle the top with the remaining mozzarella and Parmesan. Bake for 20 minutes until bubbling and the top begins to turn golden. Garnish with chopped parsley, if desired. Serve warm.

I made this and added homemade zucchini noodles....WOW...this recipe is definitely a keeper. It was sinfully good and for so few carbs! I assembled in a small casserole dish (just 2 of us) and froze the remaining meat sauce for another time. I used Rao's marinara sauce.

Ok. This has nothing to do with cleaning a cast iron pan. I don't own one and use my regular heavy frying pan to brown the meats and heat the sauce. Then I finish the lasagna in an ovenproof Pyrex casserole dish. I can tell you, I've made this dish twice now and am about to go for a third! It is so delicious! And I have found that the last layer of the cheeses on top even looks like it could be the lasagna noodles! What a brilliant idea this recipe is,Ketomama! So simple and delicious,but unbelievably still Keto! I am also intermittent fasting now (along with Keto), so having a dish like this to look forward to,in my fasting "window" makes the fasting part, for me, almost enjoyable! Thank you for creating my favorite Keto recipe!

This recipe is very tasty. I did add some sliced zucchini to cook with the onions. Also, I covered the pan with a lid and let it cook on the stove. It was delicious. Thank you!

This dish is a winner! All the flavors of lasagna - do not even miss the pasta. I baked mine in a cuisinart pan (which is oven safe), so cleanup is a breeze!
