3 Ingredient Egg-Free Easy Keto Pasta
The idea for this pasta recipe was inspired by all the success I've had cooking with mozzarella dough. If shredded mozzarella cheese can be used to make tasty recipes like chaffles, pizza, and bagels surely it can be used to make pasta as well.
For this recipe, I wanted to make sure that the ingredients and directions were easy to follow, easy to find, and as close to the texture of actual pasta as possible. After many attempts, and almost giving up, I found a winner and am so excited to share it with you.
You'll still get to experience slippery noodles that are firm and not soggy, but without all the carbs. This recipe is the perfect size to feed two people and the noodles are filling since they are made with shredded mozzarella cheese. You are going to love this pasta recipe!
How to Make Egg-Free Keto Pasta
To make keto pasta you will need three ingredients:
- Store-bought low-moisture pre-shredded mozzarella cheese
- Unflavored psyllium husk
- Xanthan gum.
Toss all three ingredients together in a microwave-safe bowl then microwave for 1 minute.
Take the dough out of the microwave, stir the dough to ensure the 3 ingredients are mixed thoroughly, then microwave the dough again for 30 seconds.

While the dough is still hot place it in-between two sheets of parchment paper. Then roll the dough into a thin sheet with a rolling pin. The dough is very easy to roll out while it is hot.
Once your dough is rolled into a thin sheet you can cut it into noodles using a knife, pizza cutter, or ever a pasta maker if you have one.
Cut the keto pasta into whatever thickness or shape you want. However, if you want the dough to stick together you for bow-tie pasta or ravioli you will need to shape the pasta while it is still warm or the pasta won't stick together.
You can even use the keto pasta to make low-carb skillet lasagna.
How to Cook Keto Pasta
Cooking this keto pasta is incredibly easy, but definitely different from traditional pasta.
All the ingredients in the pasta are already cooked so it doesn't actually need to be cooked - just warmed up!
To make the pasta slippery like traditional pasta you can either
a) blanch the pasta in boiling water for 1-3 seconds, then rinse it in cold water OR
b) toss the pasta in a warm sauce just before serving. The heat from the sauce will warm up your keto pasta pronto.
DO NOT let the keto pasta sit in boiling water! Your pasta is made of cheese so too much heat will make pasta dissolve.
A quick dip in boiling water or a toss in a warm sauce is the perfect amount of heat. Remember it doesn't need to be cooked at all since there are no raw ingredients.
How to Store 3 Ingredient Keto Pasta
This egg-free pasta will hold well in the refrigerator or freezer if you want to make a few batches in advance to eat in the future.
To store the egg-free pasta divide your pasta into small portions on a lined baking sheet then flash freeze the pasta for about 20-30 minutes.
When you are done flash freezing the pasta move the smaller portions into an airtight container or bag and store the pasta in the refrigerator or freezer.
The pasta will last in the refrigerator for up to a week. Pasta stored in the freezer will last for 1 to 2 months.
Easy Keto Pasta - Where to Find the Ingredients
All three ingredients in this pasta are pretty common in most grocery stores these days. Xanthan gum can usually be found in the baking aisle or gluten-free section of your grocery store.
Psyllium husk can be a little harder to locate in the store if you don't know where to look. Psyllium husk is typically stored in the same area as vitamins as it is a dietary fiber.
BEWARE: Do not buy the pharmacy psyllium husk powder, it will contain flavours, additives and sweeteners intended to make the psyllium fibre into a drink - definitely not what's wanted in this keto pasta recipe!
Both psyllium husk and xanthan gum can be bought online as well if want to save yourself a trip to the store.
I hope you love this pasta and can't wait to see all the tasty dishes you make with it. Once you experience how easy it is you will be hooked. Enjoy!
