Keto spaghetti and meatballs are juicy beef chicken meatballs cooked in tomato sauce and serve with zero carbs wonder noodles. It’s a delicious comforting keto dinner for all the pasta lovers.

Keto spaghetti and meatballs with wonder noodles – zero carbs noodles

The 2 magical ingredients that create a super tasty keto spaghetti and meatballs recipe with juicy beef meatballs are:

  • Zero carbs noodles – I love wonder noodles because they have zero net carbs or calories. In fact, those noodles are made of water, yam fiber, lime and oat fiber. Another options for this keto spaghetti recipe is to use shirataki noodles or homemade zucchini noodles
  • Diced chicken liver  – the meatballs are hand-shaped with a mix of minced beef and finely diced chicken liver. If it’s the chicken liver that makes you doubt about this recipe, don’t! Give it a try. As the sauce is simmered for a while and the liver is finely diced it doesn’t taste like liver at all. It simply makes the meatballs super tender and they melt into your mouth.

I learnt this recipe from an Italian friend so it’s not something I created on my own. I would actually never have thought that I would eat chicken liver before she made me this recipe.

I used keto zero carb spaghetti to make this keto spaghetti and meatballs recipe but spiralizing zucchini into zucchini noodles will work well too. I love wonder noodles as they contain no carbs, no calories and the texture is firmer than regular keto noodles.

Instructions

  • In a bowl, mix the minced beef with finely diced chicken liver (or ground chicken if you don't like liver), grated parmesan, dried herbs and salt.
  • Shape meatballs with your hands and form 20 meatballs.
  • In a large saucepan, under medium heat warm olive oil.
  • Add the crushed garlic and diced onion, reduce to low heat and cook for 2 minutes until golden and fragrant.
  • Add the meatballs into the saucepan and fry the meat for 2-3 minutes on all sides.
  • Add the beef broth to de glaze and stir in the can of diced tomatoes,
  • Cover and simmer 20 minutes or until the liquid slightly thickens and reduces.
  • Adjust with salt and pepper to taste.
  • Meanwhile cook the wonder noodles following your packing instructions. If you can't find these noodles you can make your own zucchini noodles with a spiralizer or try shirataki spaghetti
  • When the keto noodles are cooked, serve 1/4 cooked noodles per plate (or more, they have zero carbs so they won't impact carb count but they will add fiber). Top with 1/4 of the whole meatball sauce.
  • Serve with 1/4 cup of gratded parmesan.

Storage

  • You can freeze the leftovers in an airtight container or store 2 days in the fridge.
  • Defrost the day before eating and rewarm in the microwave or saucepan.
Net carb per serve: 6.4 grams using zero carb pasta. 
If you are using zucchini noodles, they will add 2g net carbs per (3.5 oz/100 g)

    Hi Carine

    I recently borrowed your book Clean Bakery from our local library in Te Aroha and loved it so much – I didn’t want to return it!!! So have now purchased a copy of my own. I’m loving all the recipes in your book and wanted to see if you had a ‘savoury’ version. So I am so happy to have found this site which gives me lots more of your sweet recipes and also the savoury! (Although you can’t beat sitting down with a cup of tea and perusing a beautiful cookbook!) Thank you so much for your inspiration and your healthy alternatives to our favourite recipes and yours from France! Keep up the good work! 🙂

    Cheers
    Victoria

    • Kia ora Victoria! I am so happy to read your comment. Unfortunately I only wrote one cookbook in New Zealand and it is a sweet one. The rest of my low carb baking recipes are here on the blog, for free. I also love to read books so I totally get the frustration to navigate through a blog but my passion is to write here and I hope you will enjoy every recipe I post. Enjoy the recipes, XOXO Carine.

  2. I truly believe that there’s never a bad time for spaghetti and meatballs. For some reason, it’s the dish that just makes me feel comforted and happy and content no matter what’s going on in my life– not sure if that’s from the carbo-high or my childhood memories, but either way I totally love it! Need to try this recipe soon!

    • Hi Karly, So true ! it is the kind of simple comforting dish we could eat all year long right? Tell me if you like this recipe. I very enjoy the addition of chicken liver in the meatballs it makes them extra juicy and tender. See you soon on the blog! Merry Christmas too! Carine.
