  1. This noodleless lasagna is amazing. The noodleless noodles are delicious. I couldn't assemble for a few days and was afraid I'd eat all the noodles up and had to put them out of site. One piece Was super filling. Was wonder what the carb count is?

    3. I loved every thing about this recipe. I never thought of egg & cheese making face noodles😍

  3. Wow this looks cool. Can't wait to try it! Thanks Wolfie!!

  4. The best noodles I've made yet. Most other recipes call for psyllium husk powder. Haven't been able to use that without it looking a little purplish, even with the best quality brand. These are really lovely.

  5. This looks so good!
    I can't wait to try it! Thanks so much for sharing this great recipe

    2. there are people who see what they want to see and usually they comprise the most negative of society. This is the most delicious of any recipe low carb I have eaten. Thank you so much

  7. This is the best noodless lasagna ever. My son is a picky eater and he even liked it.

  8. Do I have to have a silicon mat or will it work with a cooking spray?

    1. No. As long as you have a totally non-stick surface just a pan would work.

    2. Ok tyvm I'm gonna try it tomorrow!

  9. Easy and delicious thank you for this recipe it was an instant family favorite. Thank you also for your you tube channel which lead me here. Keep eating for the people!

  10. I'm fairly new to cooking from scratch and goofed a bit on this one. I made mine in a 9 x 13 casserole dish without even thinking because it's such a gold standard. Still came out great but by the time I got to the top things got thin and I didn't have much mozza and meat sauce for the top. Doh!

    This was a great tasting learning experience. Thank you Larry!

  11. In your recipe under the noodles ingredients you have 2 1/2 Mozzarella. I'm assuming that is cups but you may want to clarify that. This looks phenomenal. I have been on a ketogenic diet for well over a year in order to control my diabetes and have had phenomenal results plus I have almost effortlessly lost 75 pounds. I look and feel great.

  12. Thanks for pointing that out to me, I've fixed it to read 2 1/2 cups. Congrats on losing the 75 lbs!!!

  13. I just made this tonight. I can't believe how Good it is. Thank you. I am new to keto so i hope it really is keto because im using it as part of meal prep. With a salad of course

  14. Can the noodles be made a day ahead?

  15. Delicious better than mom's lasagna it doesn't dry out like traditional noodles when reheated thanks for the awesome recipe

  16. A friend of mine shared your recipe with me. I made it for supper today and the whole family liked it. Even my 5 yr old ate about half of hers which believe it or not is saying something lol. She's a picky eater. Def saving this to make again

  17. Just made this. OMG my new favorite. Not only easy but tasted like my old time favorite lasagna. The 'noodles' are so tasty alone, would make a great side dish cheese bread or crust for pizza. My family even loved it and had 3rds. I couldn't even tell the difference between this noodle and a box pasta noodle.

  18. This makes my Italian heart happy. Can't wait to try it! One question...could you brown the garlic and onion then add the meats to it? Maybe not as recipe calls for draining the fat from the pan.

  19. Hi Larry. This looks great and I'm going to make it today. I plugged the ingredients into Cronometer.com (I used diced tomatoes instead of crushed) and came up with the following; 5989 calories, 443g fat, 107g total carbs, 9g dietary fiber, 55g sugars, 383g protein. Because the meat recommendation is usually 1/2 lb per person, I divided into 8 servings so divide the above figures by 8 and you get the macro nutrients per serving. I CAN'T WAIT TO TRY IT!!

  20. I'm new to Keto and would love to make this lasagna. I thought if we eat anything with sugar it knocks you out of Ketosis.

  21. My sister and I made this last night and it was AMAZING. Thx for sharing a video. We seen a recipe somewhere else, but I needed a visual with the noodles and came across this. Then my sister liked your recipe better...... LOL

  22. So we tried the lasagna noodles with my wife’s regular lasagna and it was fantastic. So tonight I tried the noodles less the spices as potatoes in mousaka and it was awesome.

  23. Man, I just love this keto diet!

  24. You’ve done a great job ! I’ve made lasagna thousands of times for our Italian family. Yesterday I used your recipe. Everyone loved it with the meat in the sauce. A big hit with us all. Thanks.

  25. I am making this lasagna for the second time ! It is just Fantastic. My favorite go-to when I need something hardy on Keto. Makes me feel like I'm cheating ! When I freeze it I do add an extra layer of sauce on top !! Thank you Thank you !!

  26. I loved this recipe so much! It gave me a great idea...use the "noodle" recipe for faux bread slices. Make as directed except pour the batter onto the silicone mat into discs (like a pancake) and bake as directed. Let cool completely and use like a hamburger bun or sandwich bread and enjoy a ham and cheese sandwich again!!! If that weren't great enough I had a second idea...pizza crust! I make the recipe as though I'm making the noodle. I let it cool thoroughly and add the toppings I want, bake at 450 or so until it is hot and melted (10-15 minutes). Let it rest for a bit so the "crust" can firm up if you want to pick it up and eat it like pizza. Thank you so much!!!
