Pasta was one of my staples during college. You just boil some pasta and dump some store-bought tomato sauce on top and dinner was ready. It was fast, easy, and quite delicious. Just not very healthy…

Then I realized I could recreate the same meal almost as quickly but with low carb, ketogenic, and Paleo ingredients!

There are tons of different ways to create Paleo pasta – from shirataki noodles, to cucumber noodles, to spiralized zucchini, to sweet potato noodles, to even using Paleo flours to roll out noodles of your own. And as for the tomato sauce, well that’s pretty easy too especially with some fresh basil leaves, which you can grow in a pot on your kitchen window sill.

And to make this recipe even more tasty and to add in some healthy fats, I added coconut milk into the tomato sauce.

So, next time you’re strapped for time to make dinner, try this creamy Paleo pasta recipe – it takes just 25 minutes from start to finish.
