Tinkyada Lasagna Noodles were the first gluten-free lasagna noodles I had seen in the store and knew I had to try them. I missed lasagna.
Boiled some noodles, I only did about 6 noodles as that is all that's needed to make about 4-5 portions. Even though the package says they can be cooked for quite some time and keep their consistency, error on the side of caution. Once they become mushy, they aren't salvageable.
Here is the sauce I used. Once again, trying new kinds that guarantee to be gluten-free. It was a good sauce.
Gotta have the black olives, I am a sucker for them.
Fried up some pork sausage in a little bit of sesame oil.
Also Wegmans brand, because it guarantees that it is gluten-free. Plus, their brand is pretty tasty.
Chopped up about a handful of the pepperonis.
I tried it this with two kinds of cheese, which is okay, but I think I like it better with just the mozzarella.
Gotta have the ricotta cheese. When we were young, we use to use cottage cheese, which is a pretty good substitute, but I love the creaminess of ricotta.
So first, we spray the pan with a little PAM, this is just a bread loaf sized pan. Put in enough sauce to cover the bottom. Then lay down two noodles, they are too long, but this works out later.
Add some dollops of ricotta cheese and smush them down some.
Add some sausage and pepperoni.
Sprinkle some cheese on.
A nice helping of sauce.
Now we fold over the noodles from the previous row and continue with two more noodles, in the same fashion.
I overlap them just s smidgen.
After doing the above layer twice, it doesn't take much to fill up this pan. Put a layer of sauce on top.
Sprinkle a nice helping of cheese.
Add the olives.
And bake at 350 degrees for about 45 minutes.
Doesn't it look yummy!
Overall, I have made this about 4 or 5 times. It is super delicious and I cannot tell the difference between these noodles and regular noodles. Even the husband likes them and he usually doesn't so much care for the gluten-free items. I would definitely recommend them, even as an alternate to your normal noodles for those who can eat gluten. They are a bit pricier, but you don't need many noodles per dish if you are making it for only a few.
I am very glad to have lasagna back in my rotation of available foods!
