I was walking through Walmart the other day and saw this new product. I’ve tried “No-Boil” Lasagna using wheat noodles before, but this was the first time I’d seen Gluten-Free, No-Boil Lasagna Noodles.
So, to save ya’ll from having to buy these in fear and trepidation, (yes, I’m a fraidy-cat when it comes to new gluten free products, now you know,) I tried the Gluten Free Cafe Rice Lasagna No Boil Noodles so I could post my findings here.
I’m happy to tell you that they did in fact work, and were good. I did add more sauce than the recipe on the box called for, which turned out to be a good thing, and I did have to cook them quite a bit longer than the box recipe said to get the noodles soft all the way through. After these adjustments we found ourselves eating a very enjoyable gluten-free lasagna dinner that took half the prep time, hallelujah!
I used my favorite Lasagna recipe and adjusted it by adding an extra (26.5 oz) can of spaghetti sauce. I didn’t boil the noodles, of course, and I ended up baking it for 1hour and 30 minutes to get the noodles soft throughout. (The noodles on the bottom were more done than the ones on top, but still good.)
I have to admit, I do still like Tinkyada noodles better, but for the time and work it saves me, my loyalties just might be changing. What a nice thing it is to have good options!
