Quick Gluten Free Lasagna

A chill in the air means I break out the comfort food and lasagna is one of our favorites.  My daughter only recently started liking lasagna, and after 8 years of not eating it she requests it often.  I'm only too happy to oblige of course.  I mean, how could I say no? This recipe is very simple to throw together on a busy week night and tastes amazing.

Everything is already cooked when you throw the layers together so it's just a matter of melting the cheese.  Gluten free is such a big deal right now that it's not problem at all finding Rotini noodles. And most pasta sauce is gluten free but just check the label to make sure.

I have used both sliced mozzarella and shredded for this recipe but the slices to tend to be a bit stringier (which I like) so that's what I use mostly. Feel free to substitute your favorite meat sauce for the jarred sauce and meat, since you're making this you can add whatever your family likes best.  I love this recipe and my family does too.
