Lasagna & baked pasta! When it comes to comfort-food pasta dishes, there is nothing like a steaming hot serving of classic lasagna or stuffed shells. We have the recipes you want, some with meat and sausage, others are perfect vegetarian main dishes. And all are gluten-free and low FODMAP.

Four Cheese Baked Penne with Greens & Tomatoes

This baked pasta dish can be made in a casserole, but how impressive is it to be able to unmold it and present it as seen in the image above? All you need is a 9-inch (23 cm) springform pan.

This Four Cheese Baked Penne with Greens and Tomatoes is comprised of gluten-free penne (we like Jovial), a silky-smooth white sauce, Parmigiano Reggiano, feta, Havarti and cottage cheese with spinach and tomatoes.

Present at a dinner party and await the oohs and aahs. Take note that several of the ingredients are divided and used at various points in the recipe; make sure to read recipe through before starting to acquaint yourself with the procedure.

Skillet Lasagna

Lasagna made in a skillet? You bet, with all the classic flavors. Dinner in minutes.

Who doesn’t like pasta, tomato sauce and cheese? Gooey, melty cheese? Lasagna is a standby when we want to feed a crowd, but it takes time. It is not a weeknight dish. This recipe for Skillet Lasagna is going to change all of that. Here we combine all of the ingredients that you love in a classic lasagna but use techniques to get it on the table fast – about 35 minutes! We started with the basics, and then embellished! This recipe features ground turkey, to lighten it up a bit, and chopped carrots, zucchini and green bell pepper to nutrition, color and crunch.

Chicken & Spinach Lasagna

Tender skinless and boneless chicken breasts, fresh spinach, gluten-free pasta and four cheeses: mozzarella, Gruyere, Parmesan and lactose-free cottage cheese. This lasagna is an elegant departure from a traditional red sauce based lasagna, but of course, we have those, too.

Chili Mac

Creamy macaroni and cheese with all the classic American beef chili ingredients you love all in one very easy to make dish. Perfect for beginner cooks – and loved by all family members, big and small.

Baked Stuffed Shells with Meatballs

Pasta shells stuffed with cheese and meatballs and topped with a quick tomato sauce. Sound like a classic? It is! Perfect for parties, potlucks and satisfies kids and adults alike. Just add a big green, leafy salad with a tangy vinaigrette.

Summer Vegetable White Lasagna

This lasagna, layered up with roasted zucchini, summer squash, eggplant, tomatoes, fresh basil and spinach, cottage cheese, mozzarella and both Parmesan and Romano cheeses can feed a crowd, and like many lasagnas, freezes well and travels well to potlucks and parties.

Hearty Lasagna

If you are looking for a gluten-free version of classic lasagna, this one is it! Richly flavored meat-based red sauce with lasagna noodles, creamy cheese filling, Parmesan and both fresh and dried herbs.

Roasted Pumpkin Baked Pasta with Sage

Roasted Pumpkin Baked Pasta with Sage is hearty, yet a bit elegant. Gluten-free pasta combined with roasted kabocha squash (also called pumpkin), red bell peppers and kale with Garlic-Infused Oil along with marinara, fresh mozzarella and sage. Comfort food and easy to make. Reheats well, too.

Baked Ziti with Sausage and Swiss Chard 

This one-pan Baked Ziti with Sausage & Swiss Chard has so much going for it. It is super easy to make, feeds a crowd, is perfect for bringing to potlucks, is always welcomed on a buffet, and it is gluten-free! Did I mention that it is gooey with cheese?

Manicotti with Kale

Gluten-free manicotti shells stuffed with ricotta, mozzarella, Parmesan and chopped baby kale for added color and nutrition. You might have to order the rice-based manicotti shells, so plan ahead.

Lobster Mac ‘n Cheese

This gluten-free Lobster Mac n’ Cheese might be the ultimate combination of comfort food and elegant. You get creamy, gooey, cheesy macaroni and cheese, and if that weren’t great enough, there are pockets of tender lobster scattered throughout. Try this dish for an important family get-together like Valentine’s Day, Mother’s or Father’s Day or New Year’s Eve.

Super Deluxe Baked Ziti

This is comfort food. Pasta, meat, sausage, tomato sauce, cheese, cheese and more cheese. Make this gluten-free, lactose-free Super Deluxe Baked Ziti when you need to feed the hoards. Be prepared to be asked for the recipe.

Tuna Noodle Casserole

This gluten-free Tuna Noodle Casserole combines pasta, canned tuna, a creamy cheese sauce, peas and a crunchy, gluten-free breadcrumb topping – with more cheese and a dash of garlic-infused oil. Classic comfort-food. Bring the casserole to the table and dig in. All you need is a green salad on the side.

Noodle Kugel

What is noodle kugel? It’s a sweet pasta casserole, except that the word pasta seems so wrong here. Gotta go with noodle. Cooked noodles are combined with sugar, eggs and lots of dairy. Sour cream, butter, and cottage cheese – all lactose-free! Sweet, chewy raisins dot the casserole throughout.

Chicken & Bacon Ranch Mac ‘n Cheese

Did the title get you excited? Every time we see the words chicken, bacon, Ranch (dressing) and cheese together our salivary glands respond on their own and we cannot wait to dive in! This is like a classic mac and cheese bumped up a notch or two. You do make a from-scratch cheese sauce, beginning with a butter/flour roux, but then in addition to lactose-free milk you whisk in Ranch Dressing! And then there is the bacon, too…This is sure to become a family favorite.
