Organic Lasagna Recipe Using Gluten and Corn free Non GMO Brands

Share Button

Organic Lasagna Recipe: I got this simple lasagna recipe from a good friend and changed it up last night to make it gluten and corn free for my family. She said it is an easy recipe with just a few steps. Her family loves it, and so does my non celiac 8-year-old who ate dinner with them last week. If you are not celiac or gluten free, just use your favorite brand of organic lasagna noodles.

As many of you know, my oldest son was diagnosed with celiac and corn intolerance in 2007. Since then we discovered that he is only intolerant to GMO corn and can handle small amounts of organic corn without showing any symptoms. Despite this, I continue to work hard on providing recipes that you can make without corn. This organic lasagna recipe is also gluten and corn free, so if you need to avoid corn, give it a try.

This organic lasagna recipe features non GMO brands and is also corn free.

Our organic lasagna recipe is made with easy to find gluten and corn free ingredients.

My friend’s recipe calls for mozzarella in the cheese sauce mixture, something that I had never seen before. I thought it was odd when I read the recipe, but I have to say the result was fantastic. The kids loved it.

Recipe features non GMO brands.

12 Tinkyada Organic Brown Rice Lasagna Pasta Noodles.

2 lbs of organic grass fed ground beef sirloin.

1  1/2 Jars of organic pasta sauce (25-28 oz). Check out Eden Foods brand!

2 containers (15 oz) of Organic Valley Ricotta Cheese. (I called and a company spokesperson assures that the vinegar used in their ricotta cheese is made from cane sugar and is gluten and corn free.)

3 cups of Organic Valley Mozzarella Cheese, finely shredded. (Organic Valley uses powdered cellulose made from wood pulp rather than potato starch or corn starch.)

1 cup of Parmesan cheese.

1 small yellow onion, chopped.

3 cloves of garlic, chopped.

2 Tablespoons olive oil.

1 can of organic diced tomatoes, drained. (Visit our safe brands page for corn free varieties.)

Gluten and Corn free Organic Lasagna Recipe Directions:

Preheat your oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.  Add 2 Tablespoons of olive oil to the bottom of a large stainless steel frying pan set at gas mark 3 or low medium heat. Add your chopped onions and garlic and a dash of sea salt. When they start to render (in about 10 minutes) add grass fed organic ground sirloin. Cook until the meat browns, stirring occasionally.

Boil water in a large dutch oven pot on the stove. When making my organic lasagna recipe I boiled the water at the same time I was rendering the onions and garlic. If you’d like, you can season the lasagna noodle water with sea salt and add a drop of olive oil. When the water comes to a rolling boil, carefully add the noodles. I boiled at least 15 noodles when making my organic lasagna recipe (only 12 come in a box). This is because gluten free noodles are likely to break if you are not careful. After about 2 minutes, turn the stove off and cover the pot for about 15 minutes. This allows the gluten free lasagna noodles to continue cooking al dente.

When the beef mixture is done cooking, drain it and add your jar of pasta sauce. Remove it from heat. If you are like us, you’ll want to add extra sauce. Be sure to leave enough sauce leftover to coat the bottom of the lasagna dish and the top of the lasagna too.

In a separate bowl, combine your cheeses: all the ricotta, most of the mozzarella, and all of the Parmesan cheese. Mix with a fork until the cheeses are well combined. If your cheese mixture is not soft and pliable you can opt to microwave it for a few seconds to get it to spread nicely. It’s up to you. Assemble as directed below. Bake your organic lasagna recipe uncovered for 35-45 minutes at 350 degrees Fahrenheit. Let it stand for about 30 minutes before serving.

Assembling your Organic Lasagna Recipe:

Coat the bottom of your 9×12 ceramic baking dish with pasta sauce.

Add 3 lasagna noodles.

Layer the noodles with 1/2 the meat sauce mixture.

Add a layer of 3 lasagna noodles.

Add a layer of cheese sauce.

Add a layer of 3 lasagna noodles and cover with the rest of the meat sauce mixture.

Add a layer of cheese sauce.

Add a layer of 3 lasagna noodles.

Add the remaining jar of sauce and top with a layer of mozzarella cheese.

I hope you enjoy this organic lasagna recipe. If you try it and your family loves it, please leave a comment. If you make a substitution let me know. I’d love to hear about what works for you. My girlfriend says she sometimes adds chopped spinach in her lasagna. I may try that the next time I bake mine. If you are looking for how to buy Organic Valley products, the company spokesperson says that many of their products are found in Whole Foods stores. Healthy Family did a bit of research several months ago and created a shopping guide for consumers featuring non GMO brands. You’ll find Organic Valley on our list and the many stores their products can be found in. We get our ricotta cheese at Peapod.
