Description

Right after I was diagnosed I tried making a gluten and dairy free lasagne, and the result was’t the best. I used these mini gluten free lasagne sheets that tasted like wet rice paper once cooked and my white sauce was lumpy. It was not a pleasant experience.

With a lot more ‘freefrom’ cooking experience and a packet of Marks and Spencer’s Made without Wheat lasagne sheets I felt the time was right to try it out again. Thankfully I was pleased with the result and have a recipe I’m happy to share with you.

I only had some Violife dairy free cheddar style slices so that is why my cheese topping doesn’t look grated in the pictures. I also added some minced garlic and parsley to some dairy free spread which I used to make a ‘dairy free garlic butter’ for my gluten free baguette.

For the vegetarians among you I’ll have a go sometime soon at making a vegetarian lasagne.

Enjoy!
