Gourmet Low-FODMAP Lasagna; Gluten-free

Printer Friendly Version

This is the delicious, cheesy, meaty, gooey, low-FODMAP lasagna your family has been craving. No one will be able to tell it is low-FODMAP and gluten-free!

I eliminated ricotta and white sauce but the cheese and beef gives it a fantastic flavor. And my low-FODMAP spaghetti/ marinara sauce is a rich gourmet treat in the layers.

Gourmet Low-FODMAP Lasagna Recipe; Gluten-free

Although this recipe has not been lab-tested, a single serving should be low-FODMAP based on the ingredients *using available FODMAP data at time of posting

Prep time: 15 minutes

Cook time: 1 hour

Total time: 1 hour 15 minutes

Servings: 10

Equipment: 13 inch by 9 inch pan

*A note about gluten-free noodles; they are different than traditional pasta. Low-FODMAP gluten free pasta can end up being mushy if you are not careful. If using boil-first lasagna noodles, then prepare al-dente. For the oven-ready low-FODMAP lasagna noodles, you may want to add an additional 6 ounces of sauce prior to the mozzarella on the final top low-FODMAP lasagna layer. You can experiment with your own noodle selection and see what works best. Either way, this is a delicious, rich- tasting, gourmet low-FODMAP lasagna that you will make again and again!


  • 1 tablespoon onion or garlic infused olive oil (see my recipe-swap blog for tips on purchasing these oils)
    • Infused oils are safe as the FODMAPs are not dissolved in a oil.  Enjoy your flavors at whim!
  • 30 oz low-FODMAP marinara/ spaghetti sauce – divided into 24 oz and 6 oz
    • See note above, you may only need 24 ounces if you skip the top sauce layer
    • About 4 ounces of marinara sauce is one low-FODMAP serving
    • One recipe for my sauce will yield about 36 ounces, you can also double or triple that recipe for later use
  • 1 & 1/2 pounds extra-lean or lean ground beef ( I used extra lean due to the amount of fat in the recipe)
  • 2 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp pepper
  • 2 cups mozzarella cheese, shredded
  • 1 cup Colby Jack cheese, shredded (check to make sure your cheese does not contain hidden FODMAPS such as spices or added preservatives)
  • 9 lasagna noodles gluten-free and low-FODMAP
    • I used ‘Simply Balanced Gluten-Free Oven Ready Pasta’ from Target (contain corn flour, rice flour, mono and diglycerides)
  • 2 tablespoons Parmesan cheese grated for top
  • A pinch of basil for garnish


  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees
  • Fill pot with water and bring to a boil, then cook lasagna noodles until al dente, unless using oven ready lasagna noodles
  • Heat oil and place in pan with meat
  • Brown the meat, add salt and pepper
  • Add 24 oz low-FODMAP marinara/ spaghetti sauce to meat and let simmer 15 minutes

  • When lasagna noodles are done, drain excess water, and put off to the side
  • On bottom of pan spread 1/3 meat mixture, 1/3 cup Colby jack cheese and ½ cup mozzarella
    • If you decide to start with a bottom noodle layer, then oil the pan with some olive oil to prevent sticking

  • Lay noodles over this
  • Repeat layers 3 times

  • Top layer should be the remaining 6 ounces sauce (*see note above; depending on your noodle consistency) and then mozzarella only then parmesan cheese
  • Garnish with fresh or dried basil

  • Cover with tin foil and bake for 50 minutes
  • Then remove tin foil and let bake about 10 more minutes
  • If cheese is still not melted completely, put on broil for about two minutes
  • Let rest for about 30 minutes prior to cutting and serving

  • So delicious!

  • This is a gourmet low-FODMAP Lasagna recipe for family meals or entertaining!
