Are you ready for a keto recipe that does not taste like it is missing anything? This recipe for Keto Pasta with Asparagus, Pancetta, and Toasted Pine Nuts is unbelievable. It mixes indulgent pasta with bright asparagus, salty pancetta, and crunchy pine nuts to create a balanced, delightful dish. 

The first secret to the dish is the low-carb pasta. Nutrinoodles Shirataki Fettuccine is already-cooked, naturally low-carb pasta that is perfect for keto diets. That means each serving saves 40 or more grams of carbohydrates compared to using regular, wheat-based pasta. 

Another secret is using the best ingredients. Fresh, crisp asparagus with the ends trimmed off, extra-virgin olive oil, pancetta or prosciutto, and freshly grated Parmesan or Parmesan-Reggiano cheese add a mixture of flavors, while pine nuts add a crunch to contrast with the pasta.

You can alter this recipe to suit your needs. Bacon-lovers can use bacon instead of pancetta, and if you cannot get your hands on pine nuts, cashews can do the trick just fine. Broccoli florets can be used instead of asparagus when asparagus is not in season.

No matter how you make it, you can be confident that it will be keto-friendly and delicious!
