A delicious and easy Italian casserole that is gluten and dairy free!
Brown the ground meat with some garlic powder and salt.
Dairy Free 'Cheese' Mix I - Puree all ingredients except the shredded cheese in a food processor until they are silky smooth (and if you are feeling creative, add some herbs in here too for added pizazz. Oregano, basil, thyme, Italian Seasoning, garlic are all good options). Scrape the sides down as needed, and only add additional water, 1 tablespoon at a time if needed. When smooth, add the dairy free cheese, and pulse a couple of times to mix.
Cheese Mix II - Mix all the cheeses together in bowl.
Put a ladleful of red sauce to coat the bottom of the pan...this is a little trick so the noodles don't stick to the bottom.
Then layer the noodles, then cheese mix, then red sauce, and repeat until ingredients are used up. NOTE: the layers don't need to be completely covered, it will all melt and blend together in the oven, promise, DOLLOPS WORK GREAT!!)
