A Gluten-Free Lasagna Alternative That Will Soon Become Your New Favorite Dish — Get The Easy Recipe
This amazing gluten-free lasagna recipe comes with a personal backstory. My 19th birthday was the first time I heard the word “gluten." It was 2009, and I'd spent the day fantasizing about my celebratory dinner of homemade lasagna, garlic bread, and chocolate cake. But before I could don the princess tiara I'd bought at Claire's (because, duh), my doctor called with bad news: I had Celiac Disease. Pasta-laden birthday meal = no more.
I spent years trying to replicate my mom's lasagna recipe, but found gluten-less noodles too weak for the heavy combination of meat, sauce, and cheese. What I was able to do, however, was repurpose it into a delicious — and easy — baked ziti.
The best thing about this meal? The price. For around $70, you can feed easily feed eight people with this recipe — making it my absolute go-to when hostessing.
Here's What You'll Need:
2 tablespoons of olive oil
1-3 garlic cloves, depending on your taste
1 large yellow onion
1.5 lb. of sweet mild sausage
1.5 lb. of ground meat
3.5 cups of meatless Ragu sauce
1.5 lb. of gluten-free penne
1lb. of low-fat ricotta cheese
1lb. of low-fat cottage cheese
1lb. of part-skim, shredded mozzarella
1/2 cup of grated Parmesan cheese
