Lasagna---gluten free!

before oven

all cooked---Yum!

When I went gluten-free, I really missed pasta.  My kids love lasagna, and I wanted to keep making it.  I'm not a gourmet Italian cook, so during my wheat-eating days, I would open a jar of Ragu, and layer that with noodles, cheeses, and sauce (the sauce being cooked Italian sausage, onion, garlic, green pepper and Ragu or whatever was on sale that week).  The kids loved it, and so I needed to find a lasagna noodle that would work.

After moaning about my lasagna-less life for a year, I discovered a gluten-free box of lasagna noodles at a local Whole Foods.   I then ordered a whole case of them from Amazon, and my lasagna days were back!  I cook batches of lasagna for my lunches (I divide it all up into Tupperware containers) and when the kids are home, I cook for them.  I order by the case, and now I'm very happy again. My kids are too!  Although they are now adults, they still come home and gobble this up.

If you need a recipe and you don't want to spend a lot of time, go to any easy website and assemble some ingredients.  Here's an example.

Just a tip---the noodles don't hold up quite as well, so don't boil them as long. 



  1. Awesome!!! This looks yummy, I may have to try these noodles!

    1. It seems to go fast! The noodles aren't exactly the same as wheat, but they suit my taste buds fine. Thanks for reading.
