Faux noodles with Lasagna topping

Mmmmhmmmm.... yep. That's some good stuff right there. Who knew you could have "pasta" without eating pasta. On one of the Low Carb forums BJ and I are part of on Facebook there is something called an "Egg fast" where all you eat are eggs, cream cheese, cheese, and butter. There is a recipe to make "egg noodles" from eggs and cream cheese.

It's really easy to make, and it's versatile for so many different applications. You can make lasagna noodles, spaghetti noodles, you can use this base to make pizza crust, or even bread for sandwiches.

For the noodles:

4 eggs
2 ounces cream cheese (softened)
1/4 tsp salt
1/4 tsp black pepper
1/4 tsp garlic powder
1/2 tsp Italian seasoning

Blend the eggs, cream cheese, and seasoning in a magic bullet, ninja, or blender. Pour onto a parchment lined tall side cookie sheet. Bake at 325 for 6-8 minutes or until just set. Remove and let cool for about 5 minutes. Lift the "pasta" off the cookie sheet by holding onto the parchment paper, and set on a flat surface. Using a pizza cutter, cut into 1/4 inch thick slices.

For the dressing:

1/2 lb ground beef cooked with 1 TBSP butter.
1/2 cup Ricotta cheese
1/2 cup low carb tomato sauce (use the lowest carb one you can find)
1/2 cup chopped fresh parsley
1/2 cup shredded cheese and/or Parmesan cheese

Mix the meat with the Ricotta and tomato sauce. When getting ready to serve, laddle the meat sauce over your "pasta" noodles, and top with parsley and cheese.
