Grain Free Lasagna

Italian dishes are some of my favorite dishes, but unfortunately can be loaded with a bunch of unhealthy ingredients. Feel free to search my blog on why you should be wheat free. Of course, there are ways to make unhealthy dishes into healthy dishes with a couple of substitutions. Luckily, with help of Cappello’s lasagna sheets, I could successfully create a grain free lasagna without a problem!

I found these in the Whole Foods frozen section and I had to take a second glance. I’ve been waiting for a company to come out with gluten-free lasagna sheets, especially with almond flour. And it’s finally here!

This lasagna doesn’t take much cooking skill or too much time and leftovers are ALWAYS welcome. One ingredient that I tried my hardest to find is a non-dairy ricotta, but I have yet to find one. Trust me, I’m still searching. I would like to create this for non-dairy people as well.

If you need help with making other casserole dishes healthy, like Mac + cheese, I made sure to cover basic healthy substitutions over in this article.
