Lasagna is right up there with pizza and tacos as far as crowd-pleasing. Am I right? My lasagna has been well-liked for many years and I’ve adapted it for both gluten-free (using gluten-free lasagna noodles) but now I’ve got a grain-free lasagna version that is even GAPS compliant for you. And it’s good!
This lasagna is loaded with savory flavor. I have never used ricotta and mozzarella in my lasagnas, which works for GAPS because those cheeses aren’t GAPS legal. Instead, I load my lasagna with melty cheeses like Monterey Jack.
A couple of tips for this grain-free lasagna:
- Pre-salt the zucchini for 10 minutes and blot with paper towels. It’s still a tiny, wee bit more watery than your average lasagna with this method, but still amazing.
- After this was done baking, I let it go under the broiler for another minute or two to give the cheese that beautiful roasted look and flavor.
