It’s such a shame that we can’t eat Mac and Cheese on a keto diet, isn’t it?

Is it? Think again, my friend.

Delicious low carb penne is paired with a decadent cheese sauce to create the best mac and cheese that you’ve ever eaten.

I promise.

1 package of Liviva Penne Pasta


Cheese Sauce:

8 ounces of cream cheese, softened

8 ounces of ricotta

1 egg

¼ cup of finely grated parmesan

½ cup of shredded mozzarella

½ cup of pork rind crumbs



Pre-heat oven to 350° F, fan forced

Prepare the Penne to package directions.

Place the cream cheese and ricotta into the bowl of your stand mixer and mix on med-low until creamy and well combined.

Add the egg, half of the mozzarella and parmesan and mix until a smooth sauce is created.

Combine the Penne with the cheese sauce and spoon it into your baking dish.

Combine the pork rinds and the parmesan in a small bowl.

Sprinkle the crumb mixture over the top and then bake for 20 minutes.

If the top isn’t browned enough for your tastes, pop it under the broiler for a couple of minutes to finish it off.


This will keep, covered in the fridge, for approx. 5 days.

It can also be portioned out and frozen.
