With (3g net carb!) Nooda!!

As many of you long time readers know, we launched our very own keto pasta (Nooda!) a couple weeks back in a VIP sale… and have sold out continuously! Happy to report that we’re back in stock today, and will keep things rolling now.

What to expect? At just 3g net carbs (an actual serving!), it cooks like pasta, it tastes like pasta… it is pasta! Plus, it just so happens to be nutritionally dense (no fillers here!) and artisanally (think age-old Italian techniques!).

And I’m particularly over the moon that you guys have reported back with raving reviews (feel free to read through your solid 5 star ratings here)! Let’s just say that ‘life changing’ has been a common thread lol.

So thank you for your support and, perhaps more importantly, for your trust!

p.s. thank you also for your patience guys while we manage the unexpected demand! And for the international folks (think Canada, Europe and even Australia & NZ!), we are working on shipping to you guys veeery soon. Tatiana, my partner in crime at Nooda, worked overtime with the shipping carriers this week to secure good rates… so keep your eyes peeled!

For The Keto Marinara sauce

I’m always going to advocate taking the homemade route when it comes to marinara! Its easy, quick and it truly leads to incomparable results. Highly suggested: whip up a large batch and freeze as needed!

Having said that, to make things (extra!) easy, you can always grab a jar at the store. Rao’s marinara is the best I’ve tried so far, and one of the few out there that doesn’t have sugar as an added ingredient.

About That Cheese

I used freshly grated mozzarella here, but you can get a little extra here by adding in some real parmesan (i.e. parmigiano reggiano!) or even pecorino to the mix.

Honestly? Any good ‘melty’ cheese will work superbly!

And Some Extra Add Ins!

While just marinara and mozzarella more than do the trick, there’s beauty in simplicity after all right?! You can add in a few more things such as olives, sun-dried tomatoes and even ground beef (think a Bolognese-style bake!).

  1. Preheat oven to 350°F/180°C and set aside a baking dish.

  2. Bring 8 cups water to a rolling boil and add enough salt so it tastes like the ocean (about 1 1/2 tablespoons).

  3. Add nooda and stir immediately. Cook for 5 minutes (p.s. expect a bit of foam!), strain, bring it back to the pot and mix in the marinara sauce gently.

  4. Transfer to baking dish, top off with a (very!) generous amount of cheese and bake for 5 minutes, or until cheese is fully melted. Serve right away with ribboned basil leaves.

Recipe Notes

Please note that nutrition facts were estimated for the keto pasta (3g net carbs a serving!), with Rao's marinara and mozzarella cheese. So a generous serving comes out to just 5g net carbs, but be mindful that this will vary depending on how much sauce you add.

    Ooo, Nooda is fabulous! Yes, yes, yes bona fide pasta. Been 12 years since I’ve had real pasta. I was dancing. I wanted to leave a review on your site, but didn’t see how to.

  2. Suzanne says:

    I received my shipment last night and made this at lunch. It is so so yummy! And filling! (I didn’t realize what empty calories really were until I started eating nutrient-packed keto diet.) The texture reminds me of whole wheat pasta. The mouthfeel is not 100% like traditional pasta, but I’d say it’s 90% there! I am so, so excited about all of the possibilities. I love the shape! I love the taste! Thank you, Paola!!!

    Hi, Do you ship to England? If so how much would it cost to ship 4 boxes including the purchase of the pasta and the shipping? Thanks


  4. Anne says:

    I’m so happy to see a baked recipe with the new pasta! I made chicken parm (with the baked chicken tenders recipe from this website, which my Mom declared better than any chicken she has ever made in the oven, and she made what I considered the best breaded chicken with breadcrumbs when I was a wheat eating kid!) And had it over this pasta. It was one of the best meals I’ve ever eaten!

    I can’t wait to make mac n cheese with this pasta 🙂

    Paola, you’re an actual wizard, and your creativity knows no bounds! Thank you for this website, for all your experimentation, you make life better!

  5. Michelle Altuna says:

    Looks great! Could you share a full ingredients list though for the pasta? I would love to know exactly what is used to make it before I make a purchase and I cant seem to find a full list.

    Paola you totally rocked it!!! I was lucky enough to get a hold of Nooda in the first round and you are right, its actually legit!
