Low Carb Tufoli Moussaka
Keto Pasta, Keto Sauces
Moussaka is an eggplant or potato-based dish, often including ground meat. In our low carb recipe we have replaced the eggplants and potato with Heart Low-Carb Tufoli Pasta.
This dish is suitable for the family and especially wonderful when you are seeking the warmth of comfort food. Leftovers can be refrigerated and reheated to enjoy. The dish will taste just as good.
