As far as I am concerned, a lasagna has four main elements: The meat and tomato sauce, the pasta, the white sauce, and the cheese. On a low carb diet, the meat sauce and the cheese are OK, and I decided to try low carb tortillas instead of the pasta sheets. I used a ricotta/Parmesan/egg topping for my low carb moussaka – which would have worked fine but I decided to go with a cream cheese-based sauce instead. It's actually my take on a white sauce (or bechamel, if you prefer) and has become one of my most popular recipes!

How to Make Low Carb Lasagna

Add some olive oil to large skillet then add some ground beef, together with some onion powder, oregano, and paprika. Cook until the meat has browned. Add some chicken or beef broth and a can of diced tomatoes. Simmer for 20 minutes. The liquid will reduce down. Test for salt and pepper and add as necessary.

Add a little of the sauce to the base of a baking dish (mine was 6 x 9.5″), then add a layer of small low carb tortillas on top. Depending on the size of your dish you may need to cut them in half.

I create my lasagna with much lower carbs and higher protein simply by making egg white noodles! The texture is perfect, it is amazingly filling and also perfectly low carb AND gluten free!
