Low Carb Keto Lasagna with Crepini

Keto lasagna that is deliciously low carb, authentic, and comforting is one of my best recipes thanks to the secret layer that is Crepini Egg Thins!  Low carb lasagna does not have to be with zucchini, eggplant, or without any noodle replacement.  Vegetables in a lasagna recipe often create a pasta dish that does not hold up or tends to get watered-down or soggy due to the noodle replacement.  This easy homemade low-carb lasagna does not get watery and is also gluten-free which is just amazing. This authentic lasagna is the most amazing keto ground beef recipe.

If you love pasta and Italian food, eating low carb or keto can be hard – not anymore!!  Imagine a large slice of lasagna with layers of cheesy meaty Italian goodness stacked high. Then imagine that same slice of heaven is only 4 net carbs, FOUR!   Yes, that is what we have right here. This comforting keto lasagna recipe is not only low carb but it is authentic tasting, comforting, and it is also super easy to make.  This is what I call a “half scratch” recipe where a few ready-made store-bought items are used to make prep time so much faster. There are no noodles to cook and I use a store-bought pasta sauce from Trader Joe’s or you can use Rao’s sauce which is super keto-friendly.  (shhh, do not tell Nonnie!)

The secret layer that replaces the lasagna noodles in my recipe is Crepini Egg Thins.   If you have never heard of them, you better check them out now here https://www.crepini.com/.   I find them at my local Costco which is great as I go through them fast so a double pack is perfect.  Many Costcos, Walmarts, Publix, and Sprouts Markets have them throughout the states, just check their locator on the website to find yours. A new addiction is about to happen and you are welcome!

What is the Nutritional Information for Low Carb Keto Lasagna with Crepini?

If you make the recipe as is, the nutritional information will be close to what I have calculated below. If you use different brands of cheese or a different pasta sauce, it will alter it as well. You can get this even lower with a different pasta sauce for example.  For overall authentic flavor, this combo is ideal and soooo crazy low carb already. Enjoy it for all the comfort food that lasagna is meant to be!

How to Make Low Carb Keto Lasagna

Crepini – similar size to the round casserole dish (1.5 quart size) See link below to purchase

Just look at all those layers of ground beef, garlic, cheeses, tomato sauce, and egg thin layers. They stay together when sliced and the added egg ensures the cheese layer has not only more protein but holds together.  The recipe below serves four people.  I have two casserole dishes this size and next time I may want to make two of these so I have leftovers for lunch. We are a family of 5 but one of my kids is not a lasagna (mainly ricotta) fan.  So, for now, this will do just fine but I really wanted leftovers once I started eating this.

      This was more amazing than I could have imagined! And I’m a pretty seasoned keto cook. I bought those egg crepes at Costco and googled what to do with them and so glad I found your recipe, thank you! it tastes even better than restaurant lasagne.

  • Wow thanks for sharing this! I have never heard of the Crepini Egg thins. Always happy to add another low carb item to my life!!

  • Egg thins?? I’ve never head of them but they are a must try! Your recipe looks delicious and is the perfect way for me to try them! Pinned the recipe for later.

    • This is a great keto option as I know so many have a hard time giving up pasta and comfort foods. This is all in one problem solved!

  • I will have to give this recipe to my italian friends who are trying to go lower call. This looks delicious! 😋

  • What I love about crepini is that it’s gluten and dairy free, perfect for people like me who has dietary concerns. I’m going to check this out. Thanks for sharing.

    • Great, I am so happy this would be good for you on a gluten-free diet. If you do need a dairy-free lasagna version you can use any dairy-free cheese you like.

    • I wish though it could get me in trouble and be hangry all the time! I hope you try this out, great keto option.

  • I had not heard of crepini’s before. I will definitely be seeking these out when I make lasagna so I can make my daughter a gluten-free option.

  • Your recipes always look so delicious. Even though I am not doing Keto anymore, this has been added to my dinner list.

  • Great recipe! It’s so great to know that the egg thins will hold up well in a lasagna! My oldest daughter is part Garfield–a total lasagna addict! Yum!

  • I have never heard of Crepini before – I will definitely try this recipe – if I can find them. I also use Trader Joes sauce often – No Salt Added Marinara. It is delightful!

  • This looks really good! I just made zucchini lasagna last night, so I might have to give these a try next time!

  • I just made this recipe last night. OMG, I did not expect it to be as good as it was! I did exchange ricotta cheese for low fat cottage cheese though. I really enjoyed making this and did not expect the egg thins to hold up, but they did. We will see what it tastes like cold this evening! Thank you so much for this recipe. Do you have any other recipes that include the egg thins?

    • Stephanie – yeah – you totally made my day! I am so excited that you loved this and yes the Egg Thins really rock this and make it hold up! I am experimenting with them for more recipes so stay tuned. Thanks for coming back here to share your news and always feel free to post on my facebook and instagram acct to share pictures, everyone loves food porn! haha! Make sure you follow me there too so you can see when I post new recipes.

  • Since being on keto I’ve been craving lasagna. I will have to try this. I’m sick of veggies as a noodle replacement.

    • I can relate Pauline and why I was always on the lookout for a better replacement. This really is the perfect keto replacement.

  • Great Lasagna, we will love it! Thanks so much for sharing your awesome post with us at Full Plate Thursday,453. Hope you have a great week and come back to see us soon!

  • Made this today, we both thought it was wonderful! I almost missed the pasta, more for the texture that anything. Very tasty, will make again.

    • Thank you Julie for letting me know you liked this recipe. Hearing it was wonderful and you will make this again really makes my day!

  • As a life-long lasagna maker, allow me to instruct on an easier way to compile this: follow steps one thru six above, EXCEPT the browned meat should be blended into your sauce. The cheese mixture should be spread onto the Crepini, then a layer of the meat sauce; next, sprinkle mozzarella cheese. Repeat this layering 2 more times, and complete dish per steps 12 to the end, above.
    It’s much easier & more efficient to spread the crepe with cheese, then add the wetter ingredient, which is the meat sauce. And you save a step and distribute the meat more evenly by having the meat blended into the sauce.

    • Thanks, this is exactly what I do when I make it with regular pasta. I tried the spreading and placing with the delicate Crepini and it was a bit harder to get enough on there and not rip or sag as I moved it into the dish. I am sure their are more dainty spread/layer folks than me so they can try it for sure! And when I make my own homemade sauce, in goes the meat as well! Ok now with all this lasagna talk I want some now.

  • I had no idea that keto lasagna was possible. I’m going to have to give this a try–we’ve been missing some of our favorite pasta dishes lately!

  • 5 stars
    I can’t remember the last time I had lasagna! has to be over a year! Gonna try making this, this week!

  • I’ve been making my own version of Lasagne for years, which is basically just layers of meat and cheese because I couldn’t think of anything that would replace the pasta component well enough. I’ll have to see if I can find some Crepini in my town.

  • 5 stars
    So glad I found this on Pinterest. I have lost over 100 pounds in the last 2 years by eating low carb and the only thing I miss still is pasta. This makes me miss it so much less since it was so good.

    • Congrats on the weight loss Karen. I am so glad you are doing well and found a recipe to love and enjoy as you continue to stay healthy.

  • 5 stars
    I absolutely loved this recipe as did my adult daughter and non Keto eating husband. Thank you for taking the time to develop and post it. We will make it often. I did make with the larger Crepinis which are what our Costco had. I just cut off a bit of the end so it fit in my rectangular pan then added the cut part in like a puzzle. It worked great! I did double the sauce, which I’m glad I did as it was still on the firm side (Yummily so). And added about 1/2 cup of finely chopped onions and some fresh basil. It was scrumptious!

    • Thank you for sharing that you and your family loved this recipe. It made my day hearing how well this worked out for you and how creative you got with the puzzle assembly. If you liked this recipe, you may also love my chicken enchilada recipe that uses the Crepini egg thins too. Enjoy!

  • 5 stars
    This lasagna is nothing short of AMAZING, My non keto husband loves it as does my adult daughter. My daughter states it’s her favorite keto recipe to date! It’s actually better than the sloppy restaurant lasagna! What a wonderful way to use Crepinis. Have made this twice before but Ammaking a triple batch today to share with my daughters who aboth follow keto lifestyle. Thank you for posting such an outstanding version of a beloved favorite comfort food.

    • Thank you so much Kim for the wonderful message. I am so glad you all love it so much and everyone is eating what they love and staying healthy. It is really why I started this blog so I could share my love of food with others and they could share it as well. Enjoy and if you love this recipe so much, I highly recommend my keto chicken enchiladas recipe here on the blog, also with Crepini!

    • Yes absolutely. You can assemble it and have it ready ahead of time. It may take a bit longer in the oven coming from a cold refrigerator versus room temperature when you first assemble it. I hope this keto lasagna makes for a great Thanksgiving meal – Happy Holidays.

  • Your recipe sounds fantastic and I just recently bought egg cripinis so I am excited to try your recipe. I have one question though can I make it but not cook it and freeze it? It is just the 2 of us so I would like to make 2 smaller batches. One to cook and one to freeze.

    • Yes! You can absolutely make it ahead and freeze it. I would place it in the fridge for a few days to defrost before baking.

    We had this tonight and it was a hit for both my fiance and I. We are trying to slim down for the wedding in Fall and pasta is our weakness. No more – we are sold and will make this lasagna often.
