Greek Lasagna
Gluten-free lasagna with a Greek twist.

This week, I ended up with a ton of fresh garden vegetables.

My sister-in-law gave me a few fresh zucchini and tomatoes from her garden, and then my neighbor brought over a ton of heirloom tomatoes.

So, of course, my brain started thinking about what I might create with this windfall of beautiful ingredients!

With all that fresh zucchini, the first thing that came to mind was gluten-free lasagna. But then really…how many times has typical no pasta lasagna been done? I wanted to find my own way of redoing this dish.

Laura’s Tips + Notes

Sauce Notes:
The sauce for this recipe is usually on the thicker side. The thickness will also vary depending on how juicy your tomatoes were and as always oven temperatures can vary. If the sauce seems too thick you can add a little bit of vegetable broth or water to thin it slightly. Just keep in mind, that the veggies will release water as this dish cooks. So, you don’t want a sauce that is too thin. 
Eggplant and Zucchini Notes: 
Salting the veggies before assembly helps to remove water and also soften them before cooking. The texture of eggplant and zucchini can vary. If you do like your zucchini and eggplant on the softer side, I would recommend pan searing the slices in a bit of olive oil before assembling. 
When I created this recipe I had no issues with feeling the eggplant or zucchini was too raw. However, this may be due to personal preference or the variation in the vegetables. 
Happy Cooking!!!

  1. I was very excited to make the recipe but was very disappointed with the results. I think the issue lies with the instructions on how to prepare the eggplant & zucchini. They were both basically raw after cooking it for 1 hour. I cooked it for an additional half hour or more but it didn’t seem to help. It had wonderful flavor with the exception of the raw veggies that made it almost inedible. The sauce was extremely thick but it worked out fine. I will try it again, however, this time I will slice the eggplant & zucchini and them roast them prior to layering the rest of the ingredients.

    1. Marjorie,
      I’m sorry to hear this recipe didn’t turn out great for you. I actually like the idea of cooking the egg plant and zuchinni before assembling. I think it would an an extra layer of flavor.I would suggest pan searing them though as opposed to roasting them.

      I definitely didn’t have an issue with the veggies seeming raw after cooking. Possibly, the amount of time that I let the veggies sweat with the salt was longer. This step has a tendency to soften the veggies. The sauce is thick in the beginning but as the dish cooks the water in the eggplant and zucchini cookes out and thins the sauce. I don’t like it get too watery since you aren’t using pasta.

      Thank you for the feedback. I will add some notes to the recipe card.
