Everything you crave in lasagna is in this stovetop lasagna meal…the meaty sauce, cheese and the classic Italian spices. The picture says it all. However if you prefer a grain-free lasagna, you may enjoy our Grain-Free Vegetarian Lasagna or Keto Lasagna.
Today I had very little time to make dinner, plus Friday is a night where I am pretty tired from working long hours the entire week. The weather is grim, and my family craves comfort food. In our home, Italian food such as pizza or pasta is what I end up cooking on Fridays. It has to be a comforting meal. However, today I was super short on time, so I decided to make an easier version of lasagna. And besides, gluten-free take out is never an option at our house.
You will need only 30 minutes to make this Gluten-Free Stovetop Lasagna 🙂
Besides making this gluten-free pasta dish an easy weeknight meal, I wanted to simplify it as much as possible. So here goes! While the pasta was cooking, I made a tasty Italian meat sauce. I added plenty of spices such as oregano, basil, thyme and rosemary, some broth and tomato paste. If you have gluten-free Italian seasoning, then use it, and forget about the other spices. My pantry has just about every spice you can think of, so I always mix my spices. I would add a tablespoon of the Italian seasoning if I were using it.
By the time the meat sauce is ready, about 15 minutes, the pasta is cooked. Now all you have to do is mix everything. First, mix buttermilk with arrowroot or tapioca flour, then add it to the meat sauce with some cheese. Once the sauce starts to boil, add the pasta and fresh basil. Stir everything and top with bocconcini. Pop the skillet under a broiler for a couple of minutes, just long enough to melt the cheese on the top and dinner is ready. If you don’t want to use the broiler, add the cheese to the sauce, give it a good stir and heat it through until the cheese starts to melt. You are done…finito!
the secret ingredient that made this stovetop lasagna,
This one ingredient may surprise you, but it is a trick I learned a long time ago. We all know ricotta cheese is somewhat pricy, so I wanted to skip this cheese and used buttermilk instead, which is very economical. The results were outstanding. The sauce is creamy and has less fat. Wait until you make this Gluten-Free Stovetop Lasagna. You will be pleasantly surprised…well, at least my family was. They all loved the lasagna, and all it took me is thirty minutes from start to finish. If you have the time and energy, add a light salad or make this super easy gluten-free cheese and garlic flatbread.
It’s Friday, my feet are up, and I am enjoying a glass of red with my delicious Italian meal. If today is Friday or Saturday night for you, have an amazing weekend!
