Lasagna (Gluten Free)


After my husband was diagnosed with celiac disease last year, he went through a difficult period adjusting to eating foods without gluten. Of all the foods filled with gluten, one of the things he missed eating the most was lasagna. 

When I created this recipe I made sure to use PURE ingredients. The sauce is from organic tomatoes which are rich in antioxidants from lycopene. Tomatoes are an excellent source of Vitamins A and C. Since this recipe uses real tomatoes (versus store-bought pasta sauce) it is also relatively low in sodium.

The first time I prepared this gluten-free lasagna for dinner, my husband was in heaven! The great thing about this meal is it not only makes a delicious dinner, but makes a fantastic lunch for the following day.

Ingredients:

1 package Tinkyada Brown Rice Pasta Lasagna
1 lb. ground beef (ground turkey works as well)
1 jar organic strained tomatoes
1 jar organic tomato paste
3/4 cup Mozzarella cheese
3/4 cup Parmesan cheese
1 onion, diced
2 cloves garlic, chopped
2 Tbsp. olive oil
1 Tbsp. parsley, chopped 
2 Tbsp. Italian Seasoning
1 Tbsp. Herbamare
pepper to taste


Add one package of pasta to boiling water and cook over medium heat for 16 minutes. Rinse with cold water. Drain and set aside.


Over medium heat, saute onion and garlic in olive oil for approximately 5 minutes. Add in the beef, parsley, Italian Seasoning, Herbamare and pepper and saute for 15 minutes.


Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Lightly grease a casserole dish with olive oil. With a measuring scoop, spread 2/3 cup strained tomatoes on the bottom of the casserole dish. Next place 2/3 cup of the beef mixture on top of the tomatoes. Then use 1/3 of the tomato paste as the next layer and spread it evenly over the beef. Finally top with 1/4 cup each of Mozzarella and Parmesan cheeses. Continue again adding in 2/3 cup strained tomatoes, beef, tomato paste and then the two cheeses. Repeat these 4 steps once more for a total of 3 layers.


Bake uncovered for 30 minutes. Let cool for 5-10 minutes. Slice into individual pieces. Bon Appetit!


Serves 8.

  12. Your lasagna sounds so good. I've never had brown rice pasta as my family can eat gluten, but we like brown rice and I imagine it has as a lovely flavour as well as being better for you than ordinary lasagna. Thank you for sharing such a wholesome gluten free recipe for a real family favourite.
