Skillet Tomato Cheese Pasta and keto….wow! I was thinking. It’s time to make a healthy low-carb Italian pasta dinner, don’t you agree? Sometimes you want pasta for dinner, we all do. 

And what better way than a creamy tomato cheese fettuccine dish And the best part, you don’t need to feel guilty about extra carbs. That’s right because this creamy pasta recipe is low carb.

This gluten-free pasta dinner is keto-friendly and is one of our healthier, most popular recipes this month. Just imagine a low-carb pasta smothered in the most flavourful Italian tomato cheese sauce. 


tomato sauce, gluten free


the keto creamy sauce

The sauce is flavoured with oregano, basil and bay leaves, and for texture, grated healthy zucchini. This Italian-inspired recipe is a hearty meal without added meats.

This pasta recipe is super simple to make. You will need one large skillet or if you don’t have one, a large pot. 


Sauté the onions with garlic, add the herbs and spices, tomato sauce, some broth and zucchini. Cook for 20 minutes. To make the sauce thick and creamy, I added light cream cheese. Honestly, you can eat the sauce by spoonfuls. It’s that tasty. 

then comes the keto pasta

Once the sauce is thick and creamy, stir in the low-carb pasta.

As you can see this gluten-free pasta recipe comes together quickly, and the meal is low carb and satisfying. And, there is plenty of creamy, cheesy sauce to call this pasta dish comforting.

When I discovered this low-carb, gluten-free tofu shirataki pasta with only 1 net carb per serving, it was hard to believe! Especially since the pasta is so tasty, making it an excellent addition to keto recipes.

We really enjoyed this recipe. I used 1tsp pepper flakes and it was nice and spicy. I added a little tomato paste and used gluten free brown rice pasta. Will definitely make again with some cooked chicken mixed in.
