While at the local Walmart recently, I came across an item I had not seen before: Heartland’s gluten free no boil lasagna noodles.

I’ve had great luck with regular gluten no boil lasagna noodles, so I decided to give this gluten free version a try.  My teenaged vegetarian nieces are visiting right now from California, and stepped up to be the taste testers for this gluten free no boil lasagna recipe.

This turned out to be a real winner all around…both of my nieces gave thumbs up while asking for second servings.  I was impressed by not only how quickly this dish came together, but by how delicious it was.

I added spinach to the cheese mixture, but you could easily leave out the spinach and use browned ground beef mixed into the red sauce.  Sauteed mushrooms also would be a wonderful addition.

These are no boil noodles, so they absorb quite a bit of moisture, which is actually fine by me–I don’t like my lasagna to be soggy or falling apart because of too much moisture.  This recipe works, I promise…the cooked noodles are al dente, and there’s enough moisture but not too much.  I can’t wait to make this again, and serve it to my mom who can only eat gluten free.  Here’s my gluten free no boil lasagna recipe:
