Keto spaghetti and meatballs are juicy beef chicken meatballs cooked in tomato sauce and serve with zero-carb Wonder Noodles. It’s a delicious comforting keto dinner for all pasta lovers.
Let’s break that down, first the noodles, then the sauce.
Regular Spaghetti noodles are made with milled wheat. As a result, they contain about 30g of net carbs per 100g. Suffice to say, it is not keto-friendly at all! You would reach your daily macro with just 3 ounces of spaghetti and that’s with no sauce at all!
That’s why I am using zero-carb noodles, a keto-friendly spaghetti in this recipe. Read more about that below!
There is a great number of spaghetti sauce recipes out there. I am a big fan of the Bolognese sauce and this recipe is inspired by the traditional Spaghetti Bolognese recipe.
A traditional Bolognese sauce has about 5-8g of net carbs per 100g. Which again is not particularly keto-friendly.
So keep on reading to learn how I make a keto-friendly spaghetti sauce!

I use keto-friendly Zero-Carb spaghetti to make this keto spaghetti and meatballs recipe, but spiralizing zucchini into zucchini noodles would work well too. I love Wonder Noodles as they contain no carbs, no calories, and the texture is firmer than regular keto noodles.
