Low FODMAP and Gluten Free Recipe - La gran lasagna


For the tomato sauce

125ml/4½fl oz olive oil

1 carrot, finely chopped

1 stalk celery, finely chopped

4 x 400g/14oz cans whole plum tomatoes

salt and freshly ground black pepper

large handful fresh basil leaves, roughly torn

For the meatballs

250g/9oz minced beef

250g/9oz minced pork

1 tbsp garlic infused oil

3 tbsp roughly chopped fresh parsley

1 free-range egg, beaten

olive oil, for frying

Gluten free flour, for dusting

For the lasagne

500g/1lb 2oz gluten free lasagne sheets**

200g/7oz parmesan, grated

4 hard-boiled free-range eggs, sliced

200g/7oz lactose free cream cheese*

4 mozzarella balls, roughly chopped

* If you can not find lactose free cream cheese, simply omit.

**Most gluten free lasagna sheets require pre-cooking, check instructions on the packet.


For the tomato sauce, heat the olive oil in a large pan, add the vegetables and fry gently until softened.

Add the tomatoes, season with salt and freshly ground black pepper and stir in the basil. Reduce the heat and simmer gently for about 25 minutes, or until the tomatoes have broken down and the sauce is reduced. Set aside.

For the meatballs, place all the meatball ingredients, except the oil and gluten free flour, into a bowl and mix well. Using your hands, shape the mixture into walnut-sized balls.

Heat a generous amount of olive oil in a large frying pan. Dust the meatballs in gluten free flour, then fry in the hot oil until golden-brown on all sides.

Do this in batches, depending on the size of your frying pan. Drain on kitchen paper and set aside.

Preheat the oven to 200C/400F/Gas 6. For the lasagne, spread a little of the tomato sauce over the base of a large ovenproof dish.

Cover with a layer of gluten free lasagne sheets, then spoon over some more tomato sauce. Sprinkle with parmesan, followed by some egg slices and a few meatballs. Dot over some lactose free cream cheese* and pieces of mozzarella.

Top with more sheets of gluten free pasta and repeat the layers with the remaining ingredients, finishing with tomato sauce, meatballs, eggs and both cheeses.

Cover the dish with foil and bake in the oven for about 30 minutes. Remove the foil and cook for a further five minutes, or until the cheese has melted and the top is golden-brown. Serve immediately.
