gluten & grain-free lasagna
1 lb. ground turkey Italian sausage (I buy links that are Whole 30/Paleo approved, remove the casing and ground it myself)
1 ½ jars organic, gluten-free, dairy-free pasta sauce
9 uncooked almond-flour lasagna noodles (Capello's makes an amazing one)
2 cans white beans (I used northern)
1 TBSP. dried oregano
6 oz. package fresh organic baby spinach
2 tbsp. olive oil
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Brown meat in a skillet over medium heat, stirring occasionally until no longer pink; drain. Mix in pasta sauce and set aside. Prepare noodles as directed.
Drain and rinse beans and place in food processor (I actually just used a hand masher as I was afraid they’d get to watery in my nina). Add egg, oregano and sea salt, to taste. Blend until mixture is smooth. Set aside.
To assemble the lasagna, lightly cover the bottom of a 9x13 baking dish that's been coated with cooking spray with sauce. Top with three noodles to cover the bottom. Spread with half the bean mixture, half the spinach and then half the meat sauce. Top with three more noodles. Repeat. Top the last of the noodles with the remaining pasta sauce and garnish with a few spinach leaves.
Cover with foil and bake 30 minutes. Uncover and bake about 30 minutes longer or until hot and bubbly. Let stand 15 minutes before cutting.

Nosh & Nurture was born of this journey I am on to better the health of myself, my family and those around me. What started as a simple compilation of recipes has grown to a all-around lifestyle journal with ways to incorporate organic products into your home, pantry and beauty cabinet. I also include stories on pregnancy, new motherhood, travel, Proverbs 31 marriage, and spiritual health, as I am a Christian who couldn't do any of this without my Lord & Savior Jesus Christ.

All recipes are gluten-free and dairy-free with a lot of soy-free, grain-free, sugar-free options.
