Easy Gluten Free Lasagna Skillet
Lasagna is one of my favorite dishes. I love the combination of the layers of meat, pasta with cheese and white sauce that when baked together creates a one pot dish that is super delicious.
Making traditional lasagna can be time consuming and sometimes I want the flavor of lasagna without all the work. That’s where this Easy Gluten Free Chicken Lasagna Skillet comes in.
A twist on the Gluten Free Lasagna Skillet in my Trini Melee Cookbook it has all the flavors of lasagna in one pot. And the best part is that it can be ready in 30 minutes or less.
Making Our Easy Gluten Free Chicken Lasagna Skillet
Traditionally lasagna is made with ground beef which is a flavor I love. Every so often I like to change things up and reduce the family’s red meat intake. Using ground chicken instead of ground beef gave our lasagna skillet great flavor with less fat. If you want you can substitute the chicken for beef and give it a more traditional flavour.
Other than changing from beef to chicken, our Easy Gluten Free Chicken Lasagna Skillet uses mostly the same ingredients as regular lasagna.
We swapped the regular gluten free lasagna skins for gluten free penne or fusilli. Not the work well it just depends on which one I have on hand. I prefer the fusilli as the ridges in pasta allow for the sauce to stick better to the pasta.
Cheese no Cheese Sauce
A key step in my layered lasagna is the white cheese sauce that I use in the middle of the layers. Although this version uses no cheese sauce, it is topped with cheese which still gives the cheesy top of lasagna, but a lot leaner without the added cream of a cheese sauce.
I’m an adventurous cook, so I tend to make my own pasta sauce, but with all the ready-made versions that are gluten free, it is easy to just pick up a jar of your favorite flavor to use. The different versions add its own flavor to the dish, but it is still delish all the way.
We’ve gathered our ingredients so now it’s time to make your Easy Gluten Free Chicken Lasagna Skillet.
