Stop avoiding lasagne. Buy some gluten-free lasagne noodles, ricotta cheese, spaghetti sauce, and get cooking.
It’s All About Layers
You will need very few ingredients for this lasagne. I usually find that I need to stop by the store for ricotta cheese. That is not something I generally have on hand. I buy the quart size and sometimes I use all of it, sometimes I don’t.
Gluten-Free Lasagne Noodles
I try to keep gluten-free lasagne noodles on hand at all times. We really don’t make this very often, but when I want it, I don’t want to worry about finding GF noodles. Mueller’s is one brand that makes gluten-free lasagne noodles, but I have also bought them from Barilla, Jovial, and Tinkyada. They are all good!
Cheese … And More Cheese
I also buy shredded or sliced mozzarella. Sometimes I buy both. If I have shredded mozzarella, I will add that to my ricotta along with grated parmesan and a single egg for an amazing three-cheese combo. I save the sliced mozzarella to put on top. I love the way it looks and it’s super gooey when you cut it. YUM. If I don’t have sliced mozzarella, I used shredded. This is no-rules lasagne. You can’t mess it up.
I usually keep extra jars of spaghetti sauce on hand and I use whatever is available. Any flavor will work. If I want meat in my lasagne, I will cook up some Italian sausage or ground beef. Italian sausage adds WAY MORE flavor, so we usually opt for that. After I cook up the Italian sausage, I add the entire jar of spaghetti sauce to the pan and stir it all together. If you want to saute onion with your ground beef or Italian sausage, be my guest. If I am in the mood for some chopping, I will add onion and garlic. If I am in a time crunch, I won’t.
Lasagne is a great meal to make ahead early in the day and then reheat it later when it’s time for dinner. Sometimes I find my only free time is before preschool pick-up so that’s when dinner gets made. It might even taste better if you cook it a few hours before you actually need it!
That’s it. Really. Spoon a little sauce in the bottom of your 9×12 pan. Add lasagne noodles. Add 1/2 the cheese. Add sauce. Add more noodles. Add the other half of the cheese. Add sauce. Add more noodles. Top with what’s left of the sauce and the sliced mozzarella. Done and done. Bake.
