Keto-Friendly “Spaghetti” in Creamy Cheese Sauce
Another yummy keto friendly dinner in Kusina Adamos!
My kids wanted pasta for dinner, but we all know how pasta is not for us keto folks. My kids got their penne with cheesy sauce. Mama got “spaghetti” zucchini with the same high fat cheese sauce. It will look a bit loose and watery. You may opt to sprinkle a thickener like xanthan gum, but i did not. Overall a super easy Keto-friendly meal with spot on nutrients and macros - and we don’t have to reinvent dinner. Believe me, there are measurements in this recipe, but I eyeballed almost everything. No one’s perfect.
Here’s what’s in it:
3 cups spiralized zucchini (premade from the produce section)
3 tsps clarified butter
1-2 cloves garlic, minced or crushed
1/2 cup heavy cream
3/4 cup mozzarella, shredded
3 tbsps Parmesan cheese
salt & fresh ground pepper (I like to grind pink salt for a fuller flavor)
*Makes about 3 servings.
In a medium size saucepan over medium heat, melt the clarified butter to a nutty fragrance. Sauté the garlic 1-2 minutes. Add the heavy cream and cook a few minutes until bubbly. Salt and pepper to taste. Mix in the “spaghetti” and let it sauté 3-4 minutes. Take off the heat and toss in the mozzarella (it will thicken a bit). Serve in a bowl with a sprinkle of Parmesan on top and enjoy!
