This Keto Salmon Pesto Pasta is easy to make, packed with flavor, and so satisfying. You can make it on a weeknight after work, or serve it to guests when you are hosting a dinner.
This “impossibly” low-carb recipe is possible thanks to ThinSlim Foods Impastable Low Carb Pasta - Fettuccine. It has only 8 grams of net carbs. There are 44 grams of total carbohydrates, but 36 grams of those are from dietary fiber, which does not spike blood sugar levels.
The recipe is versatile. You can modify it according to your tastes and dietary needs. For example, if you are on a high-fat keto diet, it is okay to use almond flour instead of whole-wheat flour for dredging. You can add 2 tablespoons of melted butter when you add the chicken broth to make the sauce. And, you can sub heavy cream for the milk or fat-free half-and-half.

If you want extra vegetables, you can serve a small salad with the pasta. Or, roast or steam some vegetables, such as brussels sprouts or broccoli, while you are cooking the pasta and salmon. You can also add spinach or mushroom slices to the recipe; just cook them when you cook the sauce.
