Gluten Free Fried Lasagna

Updated: Jan 3

For procedure, see below:

Why I don't eat meat!

Fill large pot with cold water. Add salt. Bring to rolling boil. Add lasagna noodles. Cook noodles approximately half recommended time. Leave hard but not too hard that you can't roll them. Drain noodles and rinse with cold water to stop cooking process. Leave noodles in pot of cold water so they don't stick.

Mix ricotta cheese, mozzarella, spinach, (be sure to take stems off spinach and wash in salad spinner) and peas well in bowl. See video above. Once thoroughly mixed, place in a covered bowl and place in refrigerator to keep cold.

Pat noodle dry with paper towel. See above video. Place a small spoonful of cheese mixture on noodle. Roll as in above video. Place in slightly oiled pan. When all lasagna noodles are rolled, place in freezer and leave several hours until thoroughly frozen.

You can add any vegetables of your choice to your cheese mixture. Some veggies should be slightly cooked prior to adding depending on your choice. (I would cook mushrooms, zucchini, broccoli, cauliflower, etc.)

Make sauce. This time I added some red pepper to my sauce. It adds a bit of sweetness. You can use leftover sauce from a prior dish if you have some on hand. If you are making a lot of fried lasagna for a party as an appetizer, make fresh sauce and put out small bowls for individual dipping.

Just before doing this next step, heat oil in your pan. Work fast so oil doesn't get ruined. You want it hot, not boiling. I chopped my gluten free breadcrumbs to make them more fine. See video above. Season breadcrumbs with garlic and onion powder and salt. Take frozen lasagna rolls and dip into milk then breadcrumbs and place in a pan.

Place rolls into hot oil. Let cook until golden then turn over and do the same. See above video. Remove from oil and place on paper towel to drain. Serve with sauce. Dip into sauce and enjoy.

I can't give amounts, I can only give ingredients. Most Italians don't cook with measurements, they cook with heart. My mom taught me to add ingredients until "it looks good". So, judge for yourself.
