Gluten-free Spinach and Cheese Lasagna

Recipe by Chef Beth Beard, Pixie Dust Gourmet

Making lasagna always takes me back to childhood visits to my Italian grandmother and the incredible smells of tomato sauce and bubbling cheese wafting from her kitchen. Don't be fooled by the long list of ingredients, this easy recipe uses gluten-free no-boil lasagna noodles and comes together quickly with minimal prep. It is easy to put together, great for serving a crowd and it reheats and freezes well.

Prep time: 25 minutes; Cook time: 1 hour; Cool time: 10 minutes; Total time: 85 minutes
