Ingredients

Directions

  1. In a medium sized saucepan, heat 1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil over medium-high heat. Add garlic and sauté for 1-2 minutes.
  2. Add onion and carrots to saucepan. Let cook, stirring occasionally, for 5 minutes until onions are translucent and the carrots begin to soften.
  3. Add meat to saucepan and let cook until brown and no pink remains, about 7 minutes.
  4. Add tomato sauce, diced tomatoes, italian seasoning, red pepper flakes, 1 teaspoon sea salt and 1/2 teaspoon black pepper to the pan and combine.
  5. Bring tomato sauce to a boil over high heat. Reduce heat to low and let simmer for 15 minutes. The longer you can let simmer, the better! Taste and adjust spices as desired then remove from heat.
  6. Meanwhile prepare ricotta mixture in a medium bowl by combining ricotta, parmesan, garlic powder, 3/4 cup basil, parsley, eggs, 1/4 teaspoon salt and 1/2 teaspoon black pepper.
  7. Pre-heat oven to 400ºF.
  8. Prepare gluten-free lasagna noodles 2 minutes less than instructed to cook on package. Drain well and immediately begin assembling lasagna.
  9. In a 9" x 13" oven-safe container begin layering lasagna starting with 1 1/2 cups of meat sauce on the bottom. Then place one layer of noodles, 2/3 ricotta mixture, 1 1/2 cups of meat sauce and 1/4 cup shredded mozzarella. Repeat for a total of 4 layers of noodles. Top with remaining meat sauce and mozzarella. (See note about alternative preparation)
  10. Cover with aluminum foil and place lasagna in oven on a rimmed baking sheet. Bake for 25 minutes. Remove foil and continue to bake for 20 minutes, or until cheese is bubbling and golden in spots.
  11. Let cool for 15 minutes before slicing and serving.

Recipe Notes

  1. Alternatively, you can prepare this in two square 8" oven-safe dishes to have one to bake fresh and one for the freezer to bake for another day. You will have to use slightly less of the ricotta cheese mixture for each layer to get 4 layers for each 8" pan to get enough for both. To bake the frozen: defrost in the refrigerate overnight and bake as directed in step 10.

    I love Capellos! Do you cook the Capello Lasagna noodle first or just layer in lasagna without precooking?
    Thanks, Brenda

    did anyone actually MAKE this recipe? Everyone just comments on how good it looks. Who has actually tried it?

  13. Peggy says:

    I make this the night before and and do not boil noodles. Let it set it frig overnight. Turns out great. I use Tinkyada noodles.

  14. Parrish says:

    obviuosly, you can make with regular lasanga noodles? I dont have gluten issues.

  15. Alice says:

    I made as directed and followed instructions to undercook the noodles, Tinkyada brand. The package helpfully noted that “the good texture of Tinkyada can withstand quite a bit of over-cooking”. Well, that wasn’t the case for me. The undercooked noodles fell to pieces, but were still a bit firm, when I rinsed them. So, I pieced things together. I’m sure it will taste fine. I may check out another brand for future use.
