You're not just limited to a single style of recipe either. Keto bloggers are exceptionally creative. They have developed every type of recipe that you can imagine. Some of these rely on low carb noodles that you can purchase in the store, while others focus on noodles that you make yourself.
Either way, you can be certain that the finished dish will taste amazing.
Keto Noodle Recipes

PPS. We also have a list of keto zoodle recipes, where all the recipes rely on spiralized zucchini as the low carb noodle of choice.
Keto Shrimp Scampi
This recipe from ketogasm.com is a great example of keto creativity. The noodles in question are actually made from summer squash, which isn't a common choice. Still, the squash is a perfect addition. It is low in carbs and nicely complements the flavor of the shrimp.
Low Carb Thai Beef Salad Noodle Bowl
Kim from lowcarbmaven.com offers this unusual recipe for you to try out. It is a variation on the power bowl idea, where you have a collection of different ingredients that each offer their own advantages. The style works very well, as you can change out individual items based on your preferences and what you have available.
Even if you don't like the entire bowl, it's worth checking out the recipe for the coconut lime cilantro dressing that it contains. This dressing is designed for the noodles, but you could use it in many other ways as well.
Keto Peanut Butter Ramen
As Idriss from brokefoodies.com makes clear, this recipe isn't your traditional ramen, not by any stretch of the imagination. The recipe is a low carb version that has some unusual aspects, including the peanut butter flavor.
Including peanut butter with ramen is an unusual style, but don't write the recipe off because of that. The flavor combination does work well. On a side note, the recipe is vegan and uses tofu. You can simply switch the tofu for another protein type if you want to.
Low Carb Pho With Zucchini Noodles
Making pho by using zucchini noodles might seem like an odd choice, but Deanna from theharvestskillet.com shows that the style can work well.

They even perfectly complement the flavors of the dish.
Healthy Zero-Carb Noodle Alfredo
It's easy to see how this dish from ketodietapp.com would be popular. Alfredo is a common meal anyway, one that offers a great flavor combination. The ability to have the dish on a keto diet is almost too good to be true.
That's not all. This alfredo recipe is everything that you would expect in a pasta dish, including a creamy sauce and a comforting feel. The egg on top is an unusual addition, but simply adds to the appeal of the alfredo.
Spaghetti Bolognese With Zucchini Noodles
Here's a popular type of recipe to try out. It comes from aussieketoqueen.com and makes a meal that suits many different families. This is partly because spaghetti bolognese is so easy to make. It can also be made with inexpensive ground beef, which is another bonus.
While the main focus of the recipe is on the meat rather than the noodles, this is still a good noodle recipe. The cool thing is that you can choose the type of noodles you use. So, you don't have to use zoodles if you don't want to.
Asian Noodle Salad With Peanut Sauce
This noodle salad is a great reminder that noodle recipes don't all need to be hot and creamy. The recipe comes from ibreatheimhungry.com and it incorporates a fantastic peanut flavor that tastes similar to Pad Thai.

This is also a dish that will suit many people. It is free from eggs and dairy, while still offering a desirable keto macro profile. Mellissa also mentions that you can make this into a vegan recipe by making a simple substitution.
Grilled Chicken Alfredo Celeriac Noodles
This recipe is from beautyandthefoodie.com and it is a little bit unusual. The difference comes from the noodles. These are spiralized much like zoodles, but Stacey isn't using zucchini as the vegetable of choice.
Instead, she's using celeriac noodles. Stacey states that these noodles have the best texture and taste. She also links out to a page that shows you exactly how to make them. Of course, you could use another type of low carb noodle if you would prefer to.
Spaghetti Squash Puttanesca
Here's another choice for a noodle recipe. This one comes from ibreatheimhungry.com and it relies on spaghetti squash as the pasta alternative. The finished dish works exceptionally well on the plate, as you have such a cool contrast of colors.

Singapore Stir Fry
I love the appearance of this recipe from Gerri at myketokitchen.com. It simply looks amazing and you can't even tell that it is low carb at all. As the name suggests, the dish incorporates plenty of interesting flavors, in a combination that you won't normally find in Western meals.
Vegan Red Curry Zucchini Noodle Bowls
Here's another interesting meal style to try out. It's unusual to see red curry as a flavor in a noodle-based dish, particularly not one that is also vegan and keto-friendly. I also love the choice of ingredients. They create a stunning balance of flavors and colors. The recipe comes from theroastedroot.net. You can find all of the details there.
‘Just Like The Real Thing’ Low Carb Lasagna
This recipe, from peaceloveandlowcarb.com, really does look like a regular version. Despite that, the dish is very low in carbs. There are two parts to the recipe.

The most stunning thing about this recipe has to be the fried egg. It brings the dish to an entirely new level, especially once the egg yolk runs into the noodles. The noodles use a simple combination of flavors, but that's not a bad thing. You can find information for the entire dish at modernlowcarb.com.

On a side note, the dish uses zucchini strips rather than zucchini noodles. Katerina mentions that you can use zucchini noodles instead, but the texture won't be as appealing.

Chicken Soup With Egg Noodles
While we're on the topic of egg noodles, here is a recipe that relies on them. It comes from lowcarbsisters.com and includes the instructions for all parts of the meal. This type of soup that you’re making is more filling than most, as it includes protein from the egg noodles and also from the chicken.
The only limitation is that the soup is low in fat. A low fat content might be good if you’re trying to keep your calorie intake low, but the style isn’t normally desired on a keto diet. A simple solution would be to have a fat bomb afterwards as a treat. You could also look for a high fat side dish to accompany the soup.
Kim from lowcarbmaven.com offers this interesting noodle alternative. While cabbage isn’t normally a first choice for low carb noodles, the style can work extremely well. As Kim points out, the recipe is basically just fried cabbage, so it’s not the most unique dish out there. Still, you can easily use it as a base for many low carb meals. If nothing else, the cabbage is a nice alternative to zucchini noodles, which can get a little boring after a while.
Asian Noodle Bowl
I’m seriously impressed by the appearance of this Asian noodle bowl. The recipe comes from ketoconnect.net and it doesn’t look like it is low in carbs at all. One of the best aspects is the use of marinated Miracle Noodles. This approach is a ideal way to take advantage of those noodles, making them taste much more appealing.
Another cool thing is the combination of flavors, due to the ingredients chosen. The dish is also very nutritious. I particularly like the addition of an egg. This really brings the whole meal together and makes it stand out even more.
Taco Alfredo Chicken Pasta
Alex from castironketo.net offers this recipe that is too good to pass up. Unlike many of the dishes on this list, the pasta doesn’t look very exciting – the colors are just too similar. Appearances can be deceiving. The recipe takes advantage of Mexican flavors to make it stand out, creating a meal that you won’t soon forget.
Fresh Egg Pasta
This recipe comes from gnom-gnom.com and is surprisingly close to regular pasta. The recipe isn’t a fast one, taking around an hour to prepare. However, you can easily make it ahead of time and even freeze some for later use. Paola highlights all of the steps along the way, including details about making the various egg pasta shapes. There are plenty of images to help you out, along with information about cooking the pasta.
