  • Makes: 6 servings
  • Prep: 35 mins
  • Bake: 55 mins 350°F

Ingredients

  • 3 cups Quick Gluten-Free Marinara Sauce (recipe below) or gluten-free bottled pasta sauce
  • 12 dried gluten-free lasagna noodles
  • 1 egg, lightly beaten
  • 8 ounces mozzarella cheese, shredded (2 cups)
  • 4 ounces Parmesan cheese, finely shredded (1 cup)
  • 1/2 cup finely chopped onion (1 medium)
  • 1/2 cup finely chopped green sweet pepper (1 small)
  • 2 tablespoons gluten-free basil pesto or dried tomato pesto
  • 1 pound lean ground beef
  • Fresh basil (optional)

Directions

  1. If using, prepare 20-Minute Marinara Sauce.
  2. Cook lasagna noodles according to package directions, except cook for 2 minutes less than the suggested time; drain. Place noodles in a single layer on a sheet of greased foil.
  3. Meanwhile, preheat oven to 350 degrees F. In a large bowl combine egg, 1 cup of the mozzarella cheese, 1/2 cup of the Parmesan cheese, the onion, sweet pepper, and pesto. Add ground beef; mix well. Divide mixture into 12 portions. Mound each portion at the end of each noodle and roll up; arrange filled noodles in a 3-quart rectangular baking dish. Pour the 20-Minute Marinara Sauce or bottled pasta sauce over filled noodles.
  4. Bake, covered, for 45 minutes. Sprinkle with the remaining 1 cup mozzarella cheese and the remaining 1/2 cup Parmesan cheese. Bake, uncovered, about 10 minutes more or until cheeses are melted. If desired, garnish with basil.
