Italian Night-Gluten Free Style

In my 24 years of existence I have never met a lasagna I didn’t like. Vegetarian, spinach, meaty, red sauce, white sauce, they’re all delicious in my opinion. My husband, however, does not share this opinion. In fact he has never met a lasagna that he liked. That is, until he met this lasagna.

I’m not sure what compelled me to try this Martha Stewart recipe a few years ago, but I’m so glad I did. Fortunately, lasagna is a pretty easy meal to make gluten free. The only thing I have to change to make it GF is the noodles (I use Tinkyada). Warning on cooking GF lasagna noodles: heed Martha’s advice on layering the noodles in a water bath in a 9×13 casserole dish instead of boiling them. GF lasagna noodles tend to become extra soft and gooey, causing them to fall apart when you assemble the lasagna. Not so fun.

Besides being delicious, this lasagna is actually super easy to make. It does take quite a bit of time, so this is a great meal to make a day or so before you plan to serve it.

I also love that the sauce can be made all in one pot! Chopped onion and garlic, Italian seasoning, red pepper flakes, Italian sausage, and whole peeled tomatoes in puree. This makes the house smell amazing too!

And the final product! We’ve had this meal several times over the past few years, and every time my husband says, “I love this lasagna, and I don’t even like lasagna!” So there you go, that’s how good this recipe is!
