Catelli Introduces New Gluten Free Lasagne with Delicious Flavour & Texture

Fall is in a full swing with first snow in October, the abundance of colors along with rich harvest. We try to catch last warm days wherever is possible, visit farmers market and stock up with colorful fruits and vegetable the earth brought us to enjoy. We spend more time with family preparing for celebration of Thanksgiving and Halloween. Our dishes vary in taste and texture: vegetables, pasta, meat and poultry. Do you like to get home and taste delicious, tender and melting pasta forgetting for a while about celiac disease and other health issues?

Recently, a gluten free lasagne has been launched in Canada thanks to Catelli®, the company that listened to their customers and brought to the market new “generation” of pasta which is gluten free. Catelli® Gluten Free Lasagne is the sixth cut of pasta to be featured in the Catelli® Gluten Free Pasta line, voted by consumers as a 2015 Best New Product Award winner. The line also includes Penne, Fusilli, Macaroni, Spaghetti, and recently-introduced Linguine. New Catelli® Gluten Free Lasagne is made from a delicious blend of four grains –– white rice, brown rice, corn and quinoa. It is also low in sodium and a good source of fibre. Along with being wheat free, cholesterol free, and without preservatives, this pasta is easy to digest and still has the great taste and texture of regular pasta. Now I can only imagine how many delicious recipes can be made with new Catelli® Gluten Free Lasagne. We tried Veal and Eggplant Catelli® Gluten Free Lasagne recipe, perfect for fall season and great family meal. We liked it for being tender, soft and delicious. Now I have many ideas in my head what to cook using new Catelli® Gluten Free Lasagne.

Time to enjoy a variety of recipes and here is one we loved in our home.  It is a classic lasagne with flavourful new twist in roasted red peppers, smoked paprika, eggplant and delicious Catelli® Gluten Free Lasagne noodles. I used more than one box of noodles about 14 pieces.

2 tbsp (30 mL) olive oil
1/4 tsp (1 mL) each salt and freshly ground pepper
12 Catelli® Gluten Free Lasagne noodles
4 cups (1 L) shredded mozzarella cheese
1/4 cup (60 mL) grated Parmesan cheese
1/4 cup (60 mL) chopped fresh parsley

Season veal with salt and pepper. In large skillet, heat oil over medium heat; sauté veal for 6 to 8 minutes or until browned. Strain to remove fat; return veal to skillet. Add smoked paprika and tomato mixture; cook for 3 to 5 minutes.

Lasagne: Cut eggplants into 1/4-inch (5 mm) thick rounds. Brush both sides with olive oil; sprinkle with salt and pepper. Place on baking sheet; broil for 3 or 4 minutes per side or until browned. Spread 1 cup (250 mL) of Red Pepper Tomato Sauce in bottom of greased 13- x 9-inch (3.5 L) baking dish. Place 4 pieces of uncooked noodles over top.

Spread with 1 1/2 cups (375 mL) of sauce; place half of the eggplant slices over top. Sprinkle with one-third of the cheese; repeat layers once. Top with remaining noodles, sauce and cheese.

Cover with foil; bake in 375°F (190°C) oven for 30 minutes. Remove foil; bake, uncovered, for 10 minutes longer. Sprinkle with parsley. Let stand for 10 minutes.
