hooray for Hollywood

Lasagna made with fresh gluten-free lasagna sheets!

 

Rob declared this the best gluten-free lasagna we’ve had yet. The girls licked their plates clean. I had seconds.

It was the usual recipe, so what made this lasagna different from all other lasagnas I’ve made?

The pasta was fresh.

I took the noodles out of the package and simply started layering. No muss, no fuss. No starchy, slippery, wet noodles falling apart or sticking together. If you’ve ever boiled gluten-free lasagna noodles, you know what I’m talking about. And not only was it easier and more time effective to make lasagna with fresh pasta, it tasted so much better. Once you go fresh, you never go back!

Hollywood Foods is the place to go for fresh gluten-free pasta. The thing about their pasta is that it’s made from a rice-free egg noodle, so it tastes like real
authentic pasta and holds together way better than its rice-based competitors. Located on Ossington north of Queen West, Hollywood Foods sells its gluten-free products under the brand Antipastos Kitchen. If you can’t make it there, in October you’ll be able to find their cut pasta, ravioli and gnocchi—along with several frozen gluten-free entrees—at supermarket and specialty stores throughout the GTA. Entrees will include meat and vegetarian lasagna, manicotti, meat and veg cabbage rolls, eggplant Parmigiana (can’t wait for that!) and a variety of raviolis and gnocchis.

If you want to impress your family and friends and make your own lasagna with Hollywood Foods/Antipastos Kitchen fresh GF noodles, read on for the recipe…

lotsa GF at the Veg Food Fest

This past Sunday we went to the 28th Vegetarian Food Festival at Harbourfront Centre. Hosted by the Toronto Vegetarian Association, it’s billed as the largest vegetarian festival in the world! We went in search of some gluten-free goodness. Lily brought along her business card.

 

We started things off with a strawberry, banana and pineapple smoothie.

 

Next stop: lunch at Live Organic Food Bar‘s booth.
