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.

    • Newly diagnosed and totally overwhelmed
      It is overwhelming at first but step by step you will begin to find food you like - new naturally gluten free 'clean' food you have never tried before, or gluten free substitutes that taste  almost as good or just as good as the food you miss.   Someone told me one just get used to gluten free bread in the end.  But there are some on the market that are so convincing now they have even fooled my gluten eating family.   (On the subject of bread, one useful tip someone gave me early on is if one toasts gluten free bread it tastes much better.  Others may disagree but I think it does - but you will need your own gluten free toaster.... )   I am also finding that as time goes on there seems to be more and more on offer for us in the shops.  The annoying thing here in the UK is one supermarket does superb ready meals for example, another does great gluten free bread, and another sells delicious gluten free Worcestershire Sauce, but it is hard to find one that sells everything you need under one roof at times.   I don't know if it is like that where you live but if it is like this you will get wise to it and end up getting used to stocking up when the opportunity presents itself. Eating out is often challenging but after not eating out for a while when I was healing I have now found a few restaurants, and a couple are chains, that I can trust.     Lastly, it is always good to have some gluten free snacks - fruits, nuts, bars etc, at the ready when the hunger pangs strike and there is nothing there for you.  I still forget and today went to a museum with my son and had to watch him in the cafe eat his cheese and ham toastie and all I had was a cup of tea!   
    • amalgam dental fillings - remove or not?
      Yes, I meant mercury not lead, thank you for the correction. That's what happens when I stay on the computer until late at night.  The symptoms I have now resemble my gluten reaction and I know it's almost impossible that I would be getting glutened. I remember someone here mentioning that he/she had amalgam fillings removed and it helped, but that was few years back. That's why I posted it here. 
    • Newly diagnosed and totally overwhelmed
      akohlman--I am exactly 1 month from being diagnosed and still going through cleaning out of all the gluten foods from my life. I have really bad Dermatitis Herpetiformis but other wise I had no reason to think I had something like Celiac Disease. That being said, I TOTALLY understand. For me... its hard to be sick and not feel sick if that makes sense.....   I'm going to make the changes. I'm going to live a gluten-free life but like you... I STILL am devastated. I'm overweight... so obviously I don't have a healthy relationship with food, LOL, so I'm DYING at the idea of never eating Pizza Hut, Chili's Pasta, Red Lobster Pasta, McDonalds, etc. I don't care what anyone says.... that is a HUGE adjustment for me and I'm still reeling from the "loss".   That being sad.... I have 3 children and a husband depending on me and I'll do all I can to lengthen my lifespan so.... Here is to new journeys.   YOU ARE NOT ALONE in your sadness!

      The way to fix food intolerance symptoms is to stop eating the food causing the symptoms.  Dark Angel is right, there are very few tests for food intolerances.  Mostly we have to test ourselves through diet experiments.  Typically an elimination diet of some sort is used.  Eliminating food groups is one way, or cutting back to just a few foods and building from there is another.  Changing your diet is the way to go.
    • Newly diagnosed and totally overwhelmed
      Hi akohlman, It is quite an adjustment.  But it isn't a bad change.  While you have to give up some foods you may also end up finding other foods you really enjoy.  And most likely you will be eating a more nutritious, healthier diet than many of your friends do. Try to stick to whole foods you cook at home for a while.  If you want to eat out you can take food with you, or spend some time on the web searching out gluten-free restaurants on your area.  But to get started learning, it is best to cook you own food.  Meat, veggies, eggs, nuts and fruit should be the main foods you eat.  Maybe dairy will work for you, maybe not. It can take months for the immune reaction to stop and your body to heal enough to absorb nutrients properly.  It is good to get your vitamin and mineral levels checked so you know which might be low.  Even a tiny crumb of gluten can make us sick.  Cross contamination is a real problem.  And since the immune reaction doesn't stop when the food leaves your body, you have to be careful what you eat/drink.  But after you have been doing the gluten-free diet a while you get used to eating different and it becomes the new normal.

      Hello cycling lady, have you noticed my picture is showing up as you?  Have no idea why but it's rather disconcerting to see my picture and your words 😉  Do you know how to fix it?  You seem to have far more experience with this board than I do

      Hi There, I don't know if there is a place for videos in the forum. I just watched "The Truth About Gluten" I think it is a good video. I would like to share it somewhere but don't know where it should go. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
      Here is the link if you have never watched it.
