    Don’t normally comment but this was a great recipe. Love how simple it was to customize. Not a major spinach fan, but with all the meat & cheese. A win. Used Catelli gluten free lasagna noodles – worked great.

    It is meaty. It is cheesey. It hides vegetables that the littles make a fuss about. Sadly, the lasagna noodles we tried were terrible the first time. Second time using Catelli brand though, perfect.

    Your lasagna looks and tastes amazing! Great flavors in this classic dish. I think homemade gluten free lasagna beats store bought every time. So good!

  5. Made this and it turned out delicious! Used gluten free jarred marinara bc I was short on time. Used double the parm and mozzarella cheese and it was perfect! Also added fresh herbs from the garden to the skim ricotta and egg mixture.

  6. A great gluten free lasagna! Simple too. Lasagna always intimated me, but not now. Thanks Gluten Free Journey! 5 stars!
