Ingredients

  • 1 package gluten-free lasagna noodles* or 1 recipe gluten-free pasta dough rolled out into sheets
  • 1 can sweet potato puree
  • 1 egg
  • ¼-1/2 cup grated parmesan cheese
  • 2 cups tomato sauce
  • 4 cups chopped kale, ribs removed
  • 18 slices provolone or 2 cups shredded mozzarella

Instructions

  • Preheat the oven to 325 degrees Fahrenheit.
  • Mix together the sweet potato puree, egg and grated parmesan cheese. If your tomato sauce has parmesan in it already, use the lesser amount.
  • In a 9×13″ pan, spread ½ cup sauce over the bottom. Line the bottom of the pan with ⅓ of the noodles – it should be enough to cover the bottom in one layer.
  • Spread ⅓ of the sweet potato mixture over the noodles. Top with 1½ cups of the kale. Dollop another ½ cup of the tomato sauce over the kale and top with ⅓ of the cheese.
  • Add another layer of pasta and repeat the sweet potato, kale, tomato sauce, and cheese.
  • Add the final layer of pasta, spread the remaining sweet potato mixture on top. Sprinkle with the remaining 1 cup of kale, dollop on the remaining tomato sauce and top with the last of the cheese.
  • Bake covered for 45 minutes. Remove the cover and bake for 15 minutes more – until the cheese is bubbly and golden around the edges.
