When I’m following a Keto path, I like to make these Keto and Paleo pasta noodles. The almond-flour noodles here are both Keto and Paleo and low in carbs! Only 5.23 grams per serving! These almond-flour noodles are also healthier than the egg/mozzarella cheese noodles that Keto lovers prepare, as well. These almond-flour noodles contain lots of fiber, healthy monounsaturated fat, protein, and zero sodium. The egg/mozz noodles are high in saturated fat, super high in sodium, offer zero fiber and good protein. The almond-flour ones are easy to make and give you better ‘al dente’ satisfaction than the egg/mozz noodles. I like these noodles for Italian pasta and Asian dishes. I save my zoodles made from zucchini for cold pasta salad dishes.

DOES A KETO-PALEO-FRIENDLY PASTA RECIPE EXIST?

The answer is yes!  The almond-flour based recipe here uses ingredients that create that al dente texture.  The noodles taste very similar to the noodles you can make with my FRESH DOH pasta dough mix (Paleo Whole30). 

There are many different kinds of Keto pasta noodles available today.  You don’t have to eat only zoodles!  I’ve tried to Keto 2 ingredient pasta noodles made with mozzarella cheese and egg yolks. The noodles are definitely low in carbs, about 1 gram per serving. 

The noodles per serving are not lower in carbs than the almond-flour-based pasta.  And they are also far higher in saturated fat and sodium, due to the cheese.    The almond-flour-based noodles are lower in net carbs per serving, high in fiber, far lower in sodium, and contain the whole egg and healthy fat – monounsaturated!  The almond-flour-based noodles have that al-dente texture and fairly neutral flavour, while the 2 ingredient pasta tastes fatty and cheesy.

The Keto 2 ingredient pasta noodles are higher in net carbs and fat and possess zero fiber and a load of sodium.

Zoodles also an option.  However, for me they do not satisfy that al dente craving. Don’t get me wrong, I do like zoodles in summer cold pastas drizzled in a light oil.  Refreshing!  But not al dente.

WHAT ARE THE KETO PALEO PASTA’S MAIN INGREDIENTS?

The main ingredients in this pasta are almond flour, xanthan gum, flax meal, and eggs. 

HOW ARE THE KETO PALEO PASTA NOODLES PREPARED? 

These Keto/Paleo pasta or noodles are very dense and filling. Make the dough in a bowl and by hand or in a food processor or mixer. (Mixer is easiest.) Place all ingredients in the bowl.  Mix well. If making by hand pull the dough together with your hands. Start with 2 ½ cup of almond flour.  Add more if needed.  Dough should be firm. Transfer to a clean bowl.  Cover and refrigerate for 24 hours. 

When ready to use, cut the dough in half.  Cover half of the dough ball with a wet cloth.  Transfer the other half to a large piece of parchment paper.  Flatten the ball on the parchment. Using the flat side of a long knife or pastry cutter, shape the ball into a 4” X 4” square. Top the square with another sheet of parchment paper. Using a rolling pin, and roll out a square about 8” X 8”. Lift the top parchment paper. Using a long knife or pizza cutter, cut the dough into 1/8th-inch noodles. 

When ready to dine, boil the water.  Add olive oil to water.  Add the noodles.  Boil the noodles for 3 minutes. Drain the noodles in a colander and run cool water over them to prevent sticking. 

WHAT ARE THE TIPS TO MAKE THE BEST KETO NOODLES?

  • Make sure the sauce or soup is ready to go before you cook the noodles.
  • Use more boiling water than you normally would for wheat-based noodles.  This ensures the noodles won’t stick together.
  • Gently drop the noodles into the water.  Using a rubber spatula swirl the water slowly and cook the noodles for 30 seconds.  If you cook the noodles for too long they will fall apart.
  • Rinse the noodles under cool water so they don’t stick together.

WHAT WINE WORKS WITH KETO PALEO PASTA AND NOODLES?

The more compatible wine for this dish will depend on the sauce or soup involved.  Cream based sauces require bigger, fatter reds and whites, while oil-based tosses can work with lighter styled whites and reds.  The same rule applies to soups.
