Michelle’s Gluten and Dairy Free Lasagne

Gluten free and Dairy free lasagne

Michelle Wooley made the change to go gluten and dairy free with her family.

She says¬†Inspiring people are doing great things for changing the way people eat. For example,¬†Jamie Oliver¬†has a huge range of Gluten free recipes¬†and as I am learning as¬†Ellen Allard¬†says ‚ÄúIts so easy to be gluten-free‚ÄĚ.¬† Type gluten free in Google and you will find a huge resource, but even easier than that is simply checking out the recipe books you already have.¬† If you have a recipe that needs tweaking to fit your diet, start writing in substitutes for the gluten or dairy ingredients. It can be that simple.

This is her take on a gluten free and dairy free Lasagne. It is easy to make the taste great. The whole family will be sure to love it. Enjoy
