How to make low carb lasagna?

First prepare keto Bolognese sauce with ground beef

Chopped onions put on a hot olive oil and stir until the onion start to be soft and golden brown on the edges, and you feel the smell of caramelized onion.

When onion is golden brown add ground beef and salt. Stir well until meat is golden brown on the edges and water from the meat evaporated and the meat is dry. When meat becomes golden brown add tomato sauce, ground pepper, garlic, oregano and basil. Stir well for the next few minutes until sauce is thick and water is gone completely.🌿 It should be dry sauce without water because Edam cheese cannot soak the water from the sauce.

When Bolognese sauce is cooked, remove it from the stove and set aside.

    Your lasagna looks easier than baking fathead sheets to cut into “noodles” as I do now, but Edam sliced cheese is hard to find.
    Ideas for more readily available substitutes?

      You can use gouda or Montery Jack. Both will be good. 🙂
