Easy Gluten & Dairy Free Lasagna

This gluten and dairy free lasagna recipe is so simple to make. It has crazy good layers packed full of tender lasagna noodles, a hearty meat sauce, and an optional dairy ricotta mixture, all topped with fresh basil. Yum!

Lasagna is a common go-to meal in our house and everyone loves that they can enjoy it. When you make this recipe, you don’t even realize that it’s allergen friendly and safe for everyone to enjoy around the dinner table.

We had a Facebook follower first ask for the recipe when we shared a photo of our family dinner. But this was one of those easy meals that we just tossed together and didn’t really think about the ingredient quantities or how to share the instructions.

So the next time we made it, we paid a bit more attention to the details and we are so excited to share them with you in this easy Gluten and Dairy Free Lasagna recipe!

The Italian sausage and ground beef combo is like a knockout punch. We’ve experimented with the amount of Italian sausage used. We find more than 1/4  pound is too spicy for our kids.

But if spice is your thing… try adding more Italian sausage and less beef.

easy gluten and dairy free ingredients

  • ground beef— ground turkey can also be used
  • Italian sausage
  • onion
  • green bell pepper— while this is optional, it really helps add flavor and another element of texture
  • garlic
  • marinara sauce— 2 jars of your favorite marinara sauce. We like Rao’s Marinara
  • brown sugar— this helps cut the acidity of the marinara sauce
  • gluten free lasagna pasta noodles— we use Tinkyada Brown Rice Pasta “Lasagne” noodles
  • parsley— we like fresh for this recipe and use it chopped up as garnish
  • optional— Violife cheese shreds, Ricotta (you can use a homemade recipe, or our favorite is the creamy Kite Hill Ricotta found in the refrigerated section of the grocery store), you can also add fresh spinach

easy gluten + dairy free lasagna recipe tips

  • Allow let the meat to brown slowly
  • The longer the meat and pasta sauce sits the more flavorful it is. So when we can, we like to prepare the sauce a day or two ahead of time and refrigerate until it’s time to assemble with the lasagna noodles.
  • The lasagna can also be prepared in the morning, refrigerated, and then baked right before dinner.
  • Serve with a side salad and warm gluten and dairy free French baguettes from Udi’s or My Bread Bakery. Both of these brands are wonderful and highly recommended for the gluten and dairy free comminuty.
