Keto Creamy Tuna Pasta Casserole

Keto Creamy Tuna Pasta Casserole

I love taking old comfort foods and tweaking them to be keto friendly. I can’t remember the last time I had tuna pasta casserole, but I’m pretty sure we’ll have to start making it more now. It might be a new favorite of ours! My keto friendly version was creamy, flavorful, and generally a great comfort food to have. Even better – this was just a ONE skillet meal. The whole skillet also only made 2 servings for us – and we were beyond stuffed. Each serving only included 777 calories and 6 total carbs, though!

Since pasta is of course nowhere near keto friendly, I used miracle noodles for this recipe. I personally really like miracle noodles. What are your opinions – do you love them or hate them? If you’ve never tried them then you can buy them here! *Also, note I am an Amazon associate, so I may earn slightly from any of your qualifying purchases.

In this recipe, I also used pork rinds for breading, rather than bread crumbs. Other than that, fortunately everything was fairly keto friendly to begin with. After just a couple of major tweaks, it ended up perfectly meeting all keto specifications!

I hope you try this recipe soon and love it as much as us!

Ingredients

Pasta:

  • 3 packs Miracle Angel Hair Noodles
  • 2 cans Tuna
  • 5.5 oz Spreadable Goat Cheese *I use La Bonne Vie
  • 4 oz Original Cream Cheese
  • 1/2 cup Red Onion Diced
  • 6 slices bacon
  • 2 oz Pork Rinds

Spices & Seasonings:

  • 3/4 tsp Pink Salt
  • 3/4 tsp Black Pepper
  • 3/4 tsp Garlic Powder
  • 1/2 tsp Chili Powder
  • 1/4 tsp Paprika
  • 1 tsp Parsley
  • Fresh Parsley - Topping

Instructions

  • Boil your water for your noodles in a nonstick (oven safe) 12-inch skillet. Preheat your oven to 350 degrees F, 177 degrees C.
  • Rinse your miracle noodles in water. *I use shears to cut mine so they're smaller and easier to work with. Once rinsed for a few minutes, or according to the package's instruction, boil the noodles for 5-10 minutes.
  • After you've boiled the noodles for several minutes, drain them, and set them aside. Using the same skillet, reduce your heat to medium-low. Fry your bacon until it reaches your preference of crispiness.
  • Once your bacon is cooked, set aside as well - on a cutting board. Place your diced onion into the bacon grease and cook until translucent.

  • Once onion is cooked, add your main ingredients: noodles, tuna, and all cream cheese and spreadable goat cheese. Continue to stir while cheese melts to ensure all ingredients are completely incorporated.

  • Bake your pasta for 3 minutes at 350 degrees F, 177 degrees C.
  • In a plastic bag, add all of your pork rinds. Beat with a meat tenderizer, spoon, rolling pin, etc. Remove pasta from oven; sprinkle your pork rinds over the top. Bake for another 8 minutes, or until pork rinds are golden.
  • Serve and enjoy!!
