Easy Healthy Lasagna {gluten free}

Sharing is caring!

I used to think Lasagna was a complicated meal to make, so I just avoided making it. But a few weeks, I passed some green lentil lasagne noodles in the grocery store, and I couldn’t pass them up! The noodles are gluten free, high in protein, and overall a healthier option, so I decided to make a healthy lasagna that was also super simple to make.

So let’s talk NOODLES: To be honest, you can use any oven-ready lasagna noodles you want for this recipe. There are some good ones and some not so good ones on the market. Check out my gluten free pasta guide for a list of the ones I have tried and recommend.

MEAT: I used 93% lean ground turkey for this recipe, but you can use any lean meat you like. 99% lean ground turkey, 94% lean ground beef, ground chicken…these are all great options for this recipe!

SAUCE: I’m a sucker for Rao’s Marinara! But you can use your favorite marinara for this recipe, just make sure you have 4 cups of it.

CHEESE: Let’s face it, no lasagna is complete with layers of cheese! I kept it simple and scaled back the amount of cheese to make this recipe a lot healthier. Just two cups of shredded mozzarella and a 6 ounce tub of feta crumbles is all I used to make this delicious lasagna. I know feta isn’t a typical lasagna cheese, but it adds a depth of flavor that truly makes this lasagna one your family will ask for over and over again! Even my toddler eats this lasagna and asks for more!

That’s all you need: noodles, meat, sauce, and cheese…I told you it’s a simple recipe!
