Gluten Free Spinach, Escarole, and Goat Cheese Lasagna


by: Jesika Rose

Sometimes I get a bit discouraged going gluten-free. So I wanted to indulge myself in something a bit heavier than I normally eat, but like all things I cook, a twist on a classic. I love lasagna, but I was really in the mood for greens. Also, I personally am supposed to be staying away from cow dairy. So I came up with an idea to make a Spinach, Escarole, and Goat Cheese Lasagna with Tinkyada's gluten-free brown rice pasta. Not only did the pasta turn out such a perfect consistency you'd never guess it was gluten-free, but the dish as a whole was one of my favourite things I've ever made. Sweetness and tang from the goat cheese, that bitter yet sweet taste from the greens, the acidity of a tiny bit of homemade tomato sauce, and the nutty bite of the pine nuts all meld together into one purely delicious and indulgent lasagna. Lasagna can involve quite a bit of prep work, especially if making it from scratch. And of course you can use store bought tomato sauce, or even make this with regular, non gluten-free pasta. Don't let the prep time scare you. A lot of love goes into making a great lasagna but the time that goes in is rewarded in flavor.

One note on my recipes, I do all herbs and seasoning to taste and you should too. These are my estimates though. This would be great for a family meal or holiday, but the dish also tastes great as leftovers so if it's a couple people don't worry about extra!
