I’ve been making this lasagna recipe for years, it’s so simple and very delicious. It is best with a homemade sauce, but if you don’t have any on hand, a store-bought sauce will do. I would like to try it at some point this winter with homemade gluten-free pasta. I think that would set this recipe over the top. This lasagna is easy to make and if you are a household of 2, like we are, this provides 4 meals throughout the week. I love those types of meals this time of year. Something you can make on Sunday and eat through the week.

Gluten-free Vegetable Lasagna
adapted from Everyday Food Magazine, May/June 2003
Serves 8

4 cups (32 ounces) whole-milk ricotta cheese (organic if you can find it)
2 large farm fresh eggs
Salt and fresh ground pepper
2 packages (10 ounces each) frozen organic chopped spinach, thawed and squeezed to remove excess moisture
6 cups store-bought or homemade tomato sauce
12 gluten-free lasagna noodles (I love Tinkyada’s organic brown rice lasagna noodles)
1 pound fontina cheese (4 cups), shredded
1/2 cup (+ a bit more for serving) Parmigiano-Reggiano cheese, shredded

Preheat oven to 400º. Cook lasagna noodles according to package directions.

In a medium bowl, whisk together ricotta cheese, eggs, 1/2 teaspoon salt, 1/4 teaspoon pepper and 1/4 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes. Add spinach and 1/2 cup of Parmigiano-Reggiano cheese, stir well to combine.

Spread a small bit of tomato sauce in the bottom of a 9-by-13-inch glass baking dish. Arrange a layer of lasagna noodles on top. Spread 1/3 of the ricotta mixture over the noodles, followed by 1/3 of the remaining sauce; sprinkle with 1/3 of the grated cheese. Repeat to make two more layers, ending with cheese. If freezing, cover tightly with plastic wrap. Before baking, defrost in the refrigerator overnight.

Cover with aluminum foil. Bake 30 minutes. Remove foil; continue baking until top is golden brown, about 15 minutes more. Let cool slightly before serving. Top each piece with a sprinkle of shredded parmesan reggiano cheese. Enjoy.
