Gluten Free Lasagna

Leave a comment

This is another one of my favorite recipes from my mother, that I have taken and made gluten free.  I have also made a dairy free version, but I have to admit that it just wasn’t the same.  I think I need to try some different dairy free products and test it again.  When I do, I will definitely post an update.  I do use Romano cheese though, which helps reduce the amount of dairy.  Romano cheese is made from sheep’s milk, just check the label though, because sometimes cow’s milk is listed as an ingredient.  Also, use organic ingredients when you can.  Whole Foods has a great selection of organic spices.
