Lasagne

1 lb ground beef
1 clove garlic, minced
2 x 5-1/2 oz cans of tomato paste
1-1/2 cups water
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp dried basil
1 tsp dried oregano
1 tbsp dried parsley
1/4 tsp black pepper
1/2 lb ricotta cheese
2 eggs, beaten
6 gluten-free lasagne noodles (or as many as needed to fit two layers in pan), cooked and drained
1/2 lb mozzarella cheese, sliced
1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese

Brown meat with garlic, pour off fat. Add tomato paste, water, basil, oregano, parsley, salt and pepper; simmer 5 minutes. In a mixing bowl, mix together ricotta cheese and eggs. In a 13x9x2 in baking dish, spread a thin layer of meat; top in order with half the noodles, all the ricotta cheese mixture and half the mozzarella. Cover the mozzarella with half the remaining meat sauce and all the remaining noodles. Top with remaining meat sauce and mozzarella. Sprinkle with Parmesan cheese.

Bake at 350oF for 30 minutes. Let stand 10 minutes before cutting.

Serves six.

Seriously Peter, send me some! :P

That sounds delish! I'm going to have to store this one away. I'll have to figure out an egg free way to make it though.

Sounds wonderful Peter!

Have you tried it with UNcooked noodles? A couple of years ago there was a recipe floating around, but never tried it.

Lisa,

We make a pumpkin lasagne and use uncooked noodles. You bake it for about the same amount of time, I would think it would work. The next regular lasagne I make, I'm going to try with the uncooked noodles.

It sure would make it a lot easier with less pots to clean. :D I know I'd make it more often.

We've never done it without boiling the noodles first. I do recall seeing a recipe or two that called for uncooked noodles. It would save on clean up if we didn't have a pot and strainer to include in the wash-up.

Serves six? Your mileage may vary. If the real Garfield was here, he would probably eat the whole thing himself. :lol: The two of us get three meals out of it. It keeps well in the fridge and the portion to be eaten reheats well at 350 for 20 minutes and then is served immediately.

I haven't made lasagne since the whole gluten-free thing came up, but I used to cut slices from the leftovers and eat them cold for breakfast.

There are some things that I can't be trusted around...

I do the uncooked noodles all the time . . . I just add like an extra 1/2 cup of water or so (sorry, I'm not a measurer :P ) to my sauce.

Sounds delish Peter.

I used to do the uncooked wheat noodles and my recipe said to use about 1/4-1/2 cup water poured around the edges, seal with foil, and I always baked it longer. Now I boil the noodles in a frying pan, then put them on a plate until I start layering, no need to drain or rinse. I don't use eggs but do use prepared spaghetti sauce. I Like lots of sauce...mm. I have some leftover in the freezer, I need to thaw and eat up. :P

Anyone have any suggestions on a dairy free sub for the ricotta?

I make my dd's lasagna with mashed potatoes or creamed corn usually. How about some mashed beans-like mexican lasagna? I wonder if some dairy free cream cheese or sour cream would be good. Or use some of each. Tofu? IDK :blink:

Check out the cheese replacement thread and see whatsup ;)

Well, there's tofu, but that has soy in it.

I was thinking maybe a garbanzo bean (chickpea) hummus mixture, seasoned generously with olive oil and some lemon, might work.

I skip the egg in the ricotta anyway. And add frozen spinach, seasoned with olive oil, vinegar, and italian spices, in addition to the cheese and meat. I don't cook the noodles, but add extra water mixed into the tomato sauce ( a big jar of gluten-free spaghetti sauce) and seal the top of the pan with foil to bake- it steams the noodles, which absorb that water.

How funny, I just posted a lemony, olive oil, hummus dip recipe on a new thread that I thought could work.

That's pretty much how I make my lasagna. I made three different versions this week (just made them in smaller loaf pans). This version, a similar version with tofu (two vegetarian daughters) and a mushroom alfredo version (I can't do tomatoes). I made the mushroom alfredo one similar to the others but subbed in alfredo sauce instead of tomato sauce that had been mixed with sauted chopped portabello mushrooms and shallots.

    • by the way, I do find the lab who does the gluten sensitive test Gluten Allergy IgE Test This test is used to determine if a person has an allergic reaction to gluten, a protein found in wheat, barley, and rye.  Roughly 1 in 30 adults and 1 in 40 children suffer from a Gluten Allergy.  An IgE test looks for antibodies which develop in a person who has a particular allergy.  Gluten Allergy can display symptoms similar to other conditions such as Celiac Disease.  Unlike an allergy, Celiac Disease can do permanent harm to the body if left untreated.  Allergy testing when a person is experiencing symptoms can help identify or rule out an allergy as the cause.

      Gluten Allergy is typically less severe than other Gluten related conditions like Celiac Disease.  People with Gluten Allergy will often experience abdominal discomfort, bloating, gas, constipation, or diarrhea when they eat products containing gluten.  These symptoms usually stop when a person cuts gluten out of their diet.

      A Gluten Allergy IgE test can be ordered to help determine if someone allergic to gluten.  This test can also be ordered when a person is testing for Celiac Disease and has had negative results on Celiac specific antibody tests.  An allergy test can also be ordered prior to Celiac testing to rule out Gluten Allergy as a likely cause for a person’s symptoms.
    • so does it mean a person who carry dq2 or dq8 gene will have high chance to develp celiac disease if they continue to eat gluten or some other stuff trigger it??      
    • I just wanted to share my experience. I started with the endoscopy because I was having symptoms of a hernia + I had a colonoscopy at the same time to test for Chron's. While getting the scope the doctor noticed damage of the small intestine and did biopsies and they came back positive for Celiac disease. We followed up with the necessary blood work to confirm and those all came back like yours, negative, however my genetic testing was positive. So although rare, it is possible to test negative on the blood work and still have damage and be a positive. I don't know why my blood work was off, but I am glad I had the scope first because I would have never known the damage I was doing if I relied solely on the blood work. 
    • You're welcome. Good that you're having the gene test as well. If you DO have the gene(s) then you realize one can present with celiac at any point in life -- any age -- so you would need to be tested like you were, every 2 years in the absence of symptoms. If one develops symptoms then they need to be tested right away instead of waiting for the 2 yr. mark. It's not common, but is possible to test negative on the blood and still have villi damage on endoscopic biopsy. So depending on the results of the gene test....... you might see if your doc will do a endoscopy for you OR you might be what they refer to as something like a pre-celiac where you're not testing positive yet but most likely will soon.
    • Just don't give up.  Good luck and best wishes to you.  Let me know how it's going for you.  Been there, done this.  It ain't fun.
