prepare the spinach

Whenever I make a lasagna being it red sauce lasagna or white sauce, I always use fresh spinach. The spinach takes about a minute to steam, so why not use fresh-tasting spinach. Once the spinach is steamed, roughly chop it and set it aside.

Can you use frozen spinach for white lasagna?

You can. However, the flavour will not be the same. If you decide to use frozen spinach, be sure to drain it well. Otherwise, the lasagna will have too much liquid. I would use two packs.

This sauce will set this gluten-free white lasagna apart from most. I replaced part of the milk or cream with a gluten-free veggie broth to keep the sauce light and well-flavoured. I used my homemade mushroom broth

The sauce is made by briefly simmering onions, garlic, basil, bay leaf, and nutmeg in a broth and then thickened with milk, tapioca flour and two types of cheese. Very simple and packed with flavour.

The egg whites are what make this layer super light. There is no need to add seasoning to the spinach layer except lemon zest. The white sauce is what flavours the entire gluten-free lasagna.

assembling gluten-free lasagna

use oven ready gluten free lasagna noodles

I was able to find the gluten-free oven-ready lasagna noodles on Amazon. If you can’t find these noodles, you can use regular gluten-free lasagna noodles. To get them ready, first, boil them in salted water. But only until they start to soften, not fully cooked. The noodles will continue to cook while the lasagna is baking.

vegetables you can use in white lasagna

Some veggies that come to mind are mushrooms, zucchini, kale and other greens, squash, bell peppers and eggplant, to name a few. The veggies should be thinly sliced so that they cook to perfection in the lasagna.

Can you freeze gluten-free white lasagna?

I often double the recipe and freeze one. You can freeze the lasagna before baking. Then, bring the lasagna to room temperature and bake.

Adrielle, by replacing the noodles with zucchini, you have reduced the starch that naturally forms from noodles and thickened the sauce. If you are not using noodle you need to reduce the sauce by about 1 1/2 cups and add about 2 extra tablespoons of tapioca starch.


Hi,maybe I'm doing something wrong but it seems like there's WAY too much sauce and the dish isn't firming up in the oven.. not sure how long to cook to see if that happens. I added some ground beef and used slices of zucchini instead of noodles.


I am so happy that you enjoyed the lasagna Evelyn, thank you.


I made it today, the white sauce lasagna was outstanding, thank you for the recipe
