Mushroom Swiss Cheeseburger Pasta.
How good does that sound? How good does that look?
I will talk more about it in the final thoughts section
But for now, I know you are asking...
Can I have pasta on keto?
We have talked about this on the blog before but we talked more about the pasta alternatives like zoodles, spaghetti squash, and hearts of palm noodles like Palmini.
And out of all of the above the verdict from my family and I was that hearts of palm noodles were the best choice.
But there were no low carb short cut pasta options. For that, I just used cauliflower florets.
Don't get me wrong, recipes like my Low Carb "Mac & Cheese" are still some of my favorites.
But when I came across Brami pasta I have to admit I got super excited.
I was known as the "Mac & Cheese Queen" before I went low carb. I made just about every dish into a mac & cheese, including Mushroom Swiss Cheeseburgers, at one time or another. So I have a ton of recipes that I wanted to make low carb but cauliflower just wasn't cutting it.
This pasta opened the door to that for me.
Now, for those that are on strict keto, or staying below 20 net carbs, this pasta isn't something that will fit into your lifestyle.
But for people like me, that are eating more low carb and flexible, this pasta is amazing!
I have tried a few other brands and will be doing a post about all of them soon, but I will say that this pasta has a fabulous texture and taste, so it is two thumbs up from myself and my family!

FAQS ABOUT MUSHROOM SWISS CHEESEBURGER PASTA (LOW CARB)
Can I use a different cheese in this mushroom cheeseburger pasta?
Oh sure, use whatever cheese you prefer. I was just looking for the flavor profile of a mushroom Swiss cheeseburger, which was one of my all time favorite cheeseburgers, but you can use cheddar, jack, mozzarella, whatever your heart, and tummy, desires.
The pasta gives off a bitter smell when it is boiling, is that normal?
Yes, it threw me off at first. It is made with lupini beans and they can be a bit bitter. I actually tried to make this a one pot meal and cook the pasta in the skillet with the other ingredients and it gave it a slightly bitter taste. But, the pasta itself does not have a bitter taste after cooking. Plus, this brand of low carb pasta has the best texture of all of the low carb pasta I have tried.
How long will the leftover Low Carb Mushroom Swiss Cheeseburger Pasta last in the refrigerator?
You can store your leftovers in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 5 days.
Last thoughts about this recipe
I can't tell you how excited I was to adapt my old recipe to this Low Carb Mushroom Swiss Cheeseburger Pasta.
I had been missing this pasta SO much. It was the first of my old recipes I jumped to adapt.
Now, the original recipe cooks the pasta in the sauce with all of the other ingredients and I made the mistake of doing that with this Brami pasta.
The problem with that is that lupini beans can be a bit bitter. So the liquid that you cook the pasta in becomes a bit bitter. The pasta isn't bitter at all, but somehow the cooking water because bitter.
So you know, the sauce was bitter.
It took me a bit to figure out why the low carb version of my Mushroom Swiss Cheeseburger Pasta was tasting bitter, and it drove me crazy.
But once I figured it out and adjusted to making the pasta in a separate pot, it was smooth sailing from there!
Every single person that has tried this Mushroom Swiss Cheeseburger Pasta has loved it. Seriously! Not one person has given it a thumbs down!!
It is such a favorite at my house that I make it every single month and freeze the leftovers so we have 2 more meals for the month.
You know you love a recipe when you want to eat it 3 times a month gang!
So give this Mushroom Swiss Cheeseburger Pasta a try.
I think you will really love it!
