Gluten Free Goat & Sheep Cheese Lasagna

It has been YEARS since I have had lasagna.

I was diagnosed with a dairy intolerance in late 2011, and immediately cut dairy out of my life. The specific intolerance was to a type of casein found in cow dairy, so, lucky for me, I am not intolerant to GOAT or SHEEP CHEESE!!!

To make my goal to eat lasagna even more difficult, I have a lot of family members with gluten intolerances. Instead of making separate meals, I have just switched to gluten free myself. Which has actually made me feel fabulous, so why not!!

Which brings us to Christmas 2016. I was hosting my in-laws and the menu was of course, lasagna. Everyone gets ham on Christmas, at the Fawcett house, we do lasagna. In addition to the huge traditional lasagna I made, I also made a smaller one for my sister in law and I (Miss Gluten Intolerant).

Pretty simple to put together! Enjoy!
