Ingredients
  

For the Keto Lasagna Noodles:

  • 8 ounces cream cheese
  • 2 cups shredded mozzarella cheese
  • 1/2 cup grated parmesan cheese
  • 3 large eggs

For the Lasagna:

  • 1 large onion chopped
  • 1 clove garlic minced
  • 1 lb ground beef
  • 3/4 cup marinara sauce
  • 1 1/2 cups ricotta cheese
  • 1 1/2 cups shredded mozzarella cheese

Instructions
 

  • Preheat your oven to 180¬įC (350¬įF) and line a large baking sheet with parchment paper.
  • In a microwave-safe bowl, combine cream cheese, mozzarella, and parmesan cheeses. Microwave in 30-second intervals, stirring in between, until the cheese is mostly melted. Mix in the eggs to form a smooth batter.
  • Spread the batter onto the prepared baking sheet and bake for 15 minutes, or until the edges are firm. Remove and let cool.
  • Heat a non-stick pan over medium heat and add a bit of oil. Saut√© onions and garlic for 5 minutes. Add ground beef and cook for another 3 minutes before mixing in the marinara sauce. Cook for an additional 5 minutes, then remove from heat.
  • To assemble the lasagna, line an 8x8-inch pan with foil. Cut the keto lasagna sheets into 6 even pieces. Layer two pieces at the bottom, followed by 1/2 cup ricotta cheese, a third of the meat sauce, and 1/2 cup mozzarella cheese. Repeat layers until all ingredients are used.
  • Bake in the preheated oven for 30-35 minutes, or until the top is golden brown and the sauce bubbles. Let cool for 5 minutes before serving.
