This keto pasta tastes identical to regular pasta, but it has just over 3 NET CARBS per serving! And all you need to make these keto noodles is just 2 or 3 ingredients. Plus, along with being low carb pasta, it is also gluten free!



1 cup (112g) full fat shredded mozzarella cheese

1 large egg yolk

1/4 teaspoon xanthan gum (optional)


  1. Add mozzarella cheese and xanthan gum to a large bowl and mix. Microwave for about a minute until the cheese melts.
  2. Quickly mix the cheese with a spatula into a ball.
  3. Add the egg yolk to the bowl (make sure cheese is warm, not hot before doing this) and use one hand to fold the cheese into itself and a spatula with the other hand to help combine until pasta dough is uniformly yellow in color.
  4. Get out two pieces of parchment paper and sandwich the dough ball between them. Roll out until it's about 1/8 inch thick.
  5. Spray a pizza cutter with baking spray and cut dough into pasta noodle strands.
  6. Put the pasta on a baking sheet and refrigerate overnight or for at least 8 hours.
  7. Separate the strands from one another after refrigerating.
  8. Add warm water to a large pot and boil on your stovetop. Once water is boiling, add pasta to it and cook for just 1 minute.
  9. Wash pasta under water that is not too warm, not too cold, and shake off any excess water that is on it.
  10. Serve and enjoy!
