We had scrambled eggs, pancakes, turkey bacon, and turkey sausage links (not all of us ate each item but they were there for the taking).

I haven't made lasagne in years since it would have to be gf/df. I'm interested too!

I'm making the pasta spinach sausage meal Lisa described, leaving out the sausage for the vegetarian and using pecorino Romano which the dairy-allergic kid is ok with.

Ha! I've been making cottage pie all this time and calling it Shepherds pie! I'm not sure I can break the habit.

It was pretty good. My non-df/gf friend who ate with us said she couldn't tell the difference but not sure if she was just being nice .

I'm not much of a 'recipe' person but I'll try

1lb beef mince
2 onions, chopped
1 courgette/zucchini chopped (or grated if you have picky eaters)
However many mushrooms you feel like, chopped
1 large carrot, grated (extra veggies that no-one can find!
1 large or 2 small bell peppers chopped
Garlic (to preference)
Dried Oregano, I probably ended up with about a tbsp
A decent slosh of balsamic vinegar
1 stock cube
2 tins of chopped tomatoes
Squeeze of concentrated tomato paste

All in the slow cooker, on high for 4ish hours.

Layer into a pan with gf lasagne sheets.

For the white sauce I used unsweetened almond milk (I didn't measure it, I just glugged it into the saucepan until it looked about right) with a little salt and pepper and a couple of swipes on the grater with a nutmeg. Then I thickened it with cornstarch.

I grated what was left of our block of 'safe' cheese (we like Violife. Do you have that brand?) And sprinkled it on the top, then baked at GM 6 for 30ish minutes. The lasagne sheets said to blanch first but I forgot and they still worked fine

Tonight I made up a recipe for Gluten Free Italian Mac n Cheese - it included spicy Italian sausage, onion, green pepper, diced tomatoes, cream cheese, sharp cheddar cheese, half and half, salt, pepper, granulated onion and garlic, Italian seasoning with gluten free rotini. It was really good! I served it with one of my favorite things ever - kale Caesar salad.

I made 2 pans of lasagna tonight so all I have to do tomorrow is make a fresh salad!

It was cold and rainy today and it even snowed up in the mountains! So lasagna, garlic bread, and salad sounded good. I don't normally make lasagna in summer. We are having such a cold summer so far. Supposed to be 93F on Thursday, though.

I never boil lasagna noodles anymore. The "no boil" ones are no different than regular. You can use them dry and they turn out just fine.

Well that sure does simplify things. Don't you need more liquid if they start out dry?

I have been operating on the assumption that it is still June. Guess what? We are already three days into July. Here's July's thread.
