Really Good Gluten-free Lasagna

Lasagna has long been one of my favorite dishes. I can still remember the joy and anticipation that filled me as my mom pulled a large pan of lasagna out of the oven, and the torture of waiting for it to cool until my brother and I could dig in.

Once I went gluten-free, lasagna was one of those dishes that seemed to fall by the wayside. I rarely made it myself, and never ordered it out, as I couldn't eat the rich, egg noodles that anchored the dish.

Below is a recipe that foots the bill. A rich, delicious gluten-free lasagna that uses pork and beef, along with sour cream, ricotta, mozzarella and Romano cheeses to deliver a hearty, flavor-filled meal.

Ingredients:
1 package gluten-free lasagna noodles (8 ounce)
½ pound ground pork sausage, mild
½ pound ground beef
½ pound ground veal (optional)
2 cloves garlic, minced
1 medium onion, diced
1 can diced tomatoes (28 ounce)
1 can tomato paste (6 ounce)
2 teaspoons dried parsley
1 teaspoon dried basil
1 teaspoon dried oregano
1 pinch white sugar
8 ounces sour cream
8 ounces of ricotta cheese
3 eggs, lightly beaten
1¼ pounds shredded mozzarella cheese, divided
1 cup grated pecorino Romano cheese
2 teaspoons salt
½ teaspoon ground black pepper

Makes 1 - 9x13 inch pan

Directions:
Heat oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C).

In boiling water topped with a bit of olive oil, cook lasagna noodles to a firm al dente, according to instructions. Remember that the noodles will cook more in the oven later, so do not overcook them. I like to add a splash of olive oil to the noodles, so they don't stick.

*Note: I prefer BiAglut noodles, but you can use whatever kind you prefer.

Heat a large skillet to medium-high and cook the onions until clear.

Add sausage, ground beef, and garlic cook until the meat is crumbly, evenly browned. Drain off excess grease.

Stir in the diced tomatoes, tomato paste, parsley, basil, oregano, and sugar.

Increase heat and bring to a boil, then reduce the heat to low, and simmer for about 20-30 minutes, stirring occasionally, until the sauce is thickened.

In a large bowl, mix together the eggs, sour cream, ricotta, Romano cheese, salt, black pepper, and half of the mozzarella cheese.

To assemble the lasagna, spread a thin layer of the cooked sauce evenly over the bottom of a 9x13 inch baking pan. Cover with ⅓ of the lasagna noodles, ⅓ of the remaining cooked sauce, ⅓ of the sour cream mixture. Repeat this layering 2 more times.

Sprinkle the remaining mozzarella cheese evenly over top of the lasagna.

Bake about 30 minutes at 375 degrees F (190 degrees C) until the sauce is bubbly and the cheese is melted and golden brown.

This is always a HIT, even among our skeptical family and friends. We also have an egg allergy in our family and substitute with 1 and a half flax eggs and 2/3 c butternut squash. No one would ever know!

Thought cyrex is very similar to a celiac testing panel? Mostly I was just curious if IGG test results are worth anything as an indicator. I've read they can just indicate that you're actually tolerate or have recent eaten the foods (I was prior to the test).

The other alternative is just eliminating it from your diet and seeing if you do end up feeling better. There?s a chance your not celiacs and could be intolerant which is just as bad for reactions but can?t be proven with the celiac testing. It depends on how bad you would feel eating it every ...

I am the only one in my immediate family (out of my 3 siblings and both parents) to have celiacs even thought I inherited the autoimmune thyroid issues from my parents, but have a second cousin who was diagnosed 8 years ago and that?s it.

One other thought to consider is other food allergies/intolerances you may have that you didn?t know of before that could be causing this change. Is there any food that you may have added in or increased the frequency of eating since removing gluten from your diet? I know this has happened with...

Hey I?m new here too- but totally get what your talking about! I have some friends that claim to be ?gluten free? but if they are hungry will eat a piece of bread and it can be frustrating to have them later complain to you about how hard it is to eat a gluten-free diet!
