Since beginning the Keto Low-Carb diet, and now maintaining a Keto Low-Carb lifestyle I’ve hunted for delicious pasta.  Pasta is my weakness.  It’s the one food I refused to give up. 

I’m also a huge fan of Martha Stewart recipes because they mostly use few ingredients and are super easy to prepare.  While it’s best to buy fresh tomatoes in season, you can buy tomatoes in other seasons from the supermarket and ripen them at home.

I eat Keto Low-Carb pasta about once per week when I’m training hard.  Eating foods like low-carb pasta keeps me sane and committed to this lifestyle long term.

WHAT’S THE HISTORY OF MARTHA STEWART’S ONE-PAN PASTA?

Based on a classic Puglia, Italian dish, Stewart’s one-pot pasta is super popular because it makes its own sauce in about 9 minutes.  Martha Stewart Living published this recipe for the first time in June 2013.  It went viral on the internet because of its ease to prepare and delicious taste.  One-pan; 9 minutes!

As the story goes…

In 2011, Martha Stewart’s chef, recipe developer and food stylist, Nora Singley, visited a small fishing village called Peschici in Puglia, Italy. 

One night, Singley and colleague Sarah Mastracco hit a local restaurant for dinner.  Server and Matteo Martella (who was also the owner’s son and cook) shared about how his mom prepared pasta – in one pot. 

Martela took the ladies into the restaurant kitchen to show them.  He placed in a skillet some fresh tomatoes, chopped onion, dry spaghetti, fresh basil, salt, and a small amount of water.  About 9 minutes later they enjoyed delicious pasta.   

Once back in New York, Singley developed the technique into a complete recipe and made it for Martha Stewart, who vets all the recipes under her name.  The recipe became a feature in Martha Stewart Living.

WHAT OTHER ONE-PAN PASTA DISHES CAN YOU PREPARE?

Keto Low-Carb Spaghetti alle vongole: Start with spaghetti, garlic, chopped fresh chiles, olive oil, salt and pepper, sprigs of parsley (remove them later). Add clams a few minutes before the end of cooking, then finish with chopped parsley, lemon juice, and additional olive oil.

WHAT’S THE SECRET TO THE TASTE OF KETO LAZY MARTHA STEWART INSPIRED ONE-PAN PASTA?

The secret to this dish is choosing the freshest of ingredients.  We all know that.  Well, that’s more important when a dish has few ingredients.  The fewer the ingredients, the more the ingredient’s flavours remain distinct and shine through.

WHAT IS THE NUTRITIONAL VALUE OF KETO LAZY PALEO MARTHA STEWART INSPIRED ONE-PAN PASTA?

The nutritional value of this dish depends on the Keto Low-Carb pasta you choose.  I prefer Fiber Gourmet.  I’ve included a nutritional label.  Each box contains 4 servings.  Each serving has about 16 net carbs, 1 gram of sugar, 1 gram of fat, 7 grams of protein, and 100 mg of sodium.  This product is as close to pasta and is lower in carbs than regular pasta.

There are other brands of Keto Low-Carb pasta from which to choose.  The choice is yours.

WHAT WINE WORKS WITH KETO LAZY MARTHA STEWART INSPIRED ONE PAN PASTA?

TIPS:

If using Keto Low-Carb compliant dried pasta, be sure to use only as much as you need.  One box can feed up to 6 people!  The pasta soaks up water quickly and becomes mushy if left too long.  If you have left over pasta, and even if it’s too soft, use the noodles to do a baked pasta dish.

If using homemade pasta noodles, cook up all the ingredients in the one-pan except for the noodles.  Do the noodles separately and then fold them gently into the sauce just before serving.  This also holds true for zoodles.  Add them at the end of the cooking preparation.

WHAT OTHER ONE-PAN PASTA DISHES CAN YOU PREPARE?

You can prepare other one-pan pasta dishes using your favourite Keto Low-Carb pasta brand. Be sure to read the pasta package label to know when to add the pasta to the pan and to calculate how long it needs to boil. Not all Keto Low-Carb pasta versions cook for the same amount of time as wheat-based pasta. Calculate accordingly. Here are a few dishes to try:

  • Rotini with sausage and broccoli rabe: Brown the sausage.  Add , pasta, water, broccoli rabe, olive oil, salt and pepper, red pepper flakes. Sprinkle with Parmesan.
  • Keto Low-Carb Paleo Spaghetti alle vongole: Start with spaghetti, garlic, chopped fresh chiles, olive oil, salt and pepper, sprigs of parsley (remove them later). Add clams a few minutes before the end of cooking, then finish with chopped parsley, lemon juice, and additional olive oil.
  • Keto Low-Carb Paleo Penne Rigatate: Balsamic vinegar, capers, olive oil, eggplant, garlic, salt, and pepper. Finish with mozzarella or ricotta salata, toasted pine nuts, parsley, and Parmesan.
  • Keto Low-Carb Paleo Simple Spaghetti: Pasta, water, salt, and cracked black pepper, and grated Pecorino. Some would add butter, too. Finish with additional Pecorino.
  • Keto Low-Carb Paleo Spaghetti Bolognese: Brown off the meat first, then add wine to deglaze skillet.  Add rest of ingredients—mushrooms, onions, and celery (all minced super finely in a food processor), sprigs of thyme, bay leaf, can of tomatoes, salt and pepper. Sprinkle with Parmesan.

WHAT WINE WORKS WITH KETO LOW-CARB MARTHA STEWART INSPIRED ONE-PAN PASTA?

The predominant flavours of this dish are delicate. Fresh tomatoes, basil, onions. Depending on the amount of cheese you sprinkle on top, the dish might also have some lovely saltiness. For this reason choose an easy, delicate white wine with good acidity to match. The wine will not overpower the delicate nature of the vegetables, all the while offsetting the saltiness from the cheese. Think Pinot Gris, Pinot Grigio.
