While it’s a balmy 93 degrees here in North Carolina, Mondays in my family always means pasta night. Recently, I made stove top lasagna using gluten-free lasagna noodles. This recipe constantly gets a thumbs up from my family, and we have enough for leftovers on Tuesday. I truly think that hot pasta dishes are the only meals that still work in the summer. If you haven’t tried it, please do. Here we go!

Items Needed:


  • Gluten free lasagna noodles (1 box)
  • 28 oz crushed tomatoes
  • 1.5-2 lbs ground beef
  • 14 oz water
  • 1-2 tblsp diced garlic
  • 2 tsblsp oregano
  • 2 dashes of crushed red pepper (we like spice)
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1/4 tsp pepper
  • 1/3 cup sugar (brown sugar gives it a rich taste)
  • 1 cup ricotta
  • 1/3 cup shredded mozzarella cheese
  • 1/4 cup shredded mild cheddar cheese


  • Set the Dutch oven on the stove, with the heat on medium.
  • Brown the ground beef, completely.
  • Add the crushed tomatoes and water. Stir.
  • Next, add all of the seasonings.
  • By this time, the mixture should be boiling. Break up the lasagna noodles and put them into the Dutch oven.
Broken lasagna noodles
  • Turn the stove down to low, cover the Dutch oven and let cook for 15-20 minutes. Be sure to stir occasionally.
  • Once the noodles are fully cooked, spoon the Ricotta cheese into the Dutch oven.
