This gluten-free lasagna noodles recipe is surprisingly easy to make, and the result is so delicious. It is a little more effort than simply buying them from the supermarket, but the result is worth it.
By the time you’re finished making this recipe, you should have some lovely sheets of pasta that will be perfect for your next lasagna. I recommend that you use these straight away as they won’t keep very well in the fridge.
These lasagna noodles work great with basically any type of lasagna sauce. They will work just fine with different cooking methods such as cooking the lasagna in the slow cooker or an oven.
Why make Lasagna Noodles at Home
It can be hard to find fresh gluten-free lasagna noodles for sale at the supermarket. Luckily this recipe is so easy that you won’t ever feel the need to go back to the dry noodles or worry about finding fresh noodles at the store.
A single batch of this recipe should be more than enough for one delicious lasagna that feeds six people. If you need to make multiple, then I highly recommend that you double the recipe.
I recommend that you make these only when you need them. Preparing the lasagna sheets fresh will ensure that they don’t end up sticking together or degrading overnight. They’re pretty easy to make and will only add about twenty minutes to your preparation time.
How to use Lasagna Noodles
Once you have made the gluten-free lasagna noodles, you can use them instead of regular noodles in almost every single lasagna recipe. Just make sure that no gluten products will be in the other components such as the béchamel sauce.
Since these noodles are fresh, you don’t need to boil them before use. They may soak up a little bit of liquid so keep this in mind when you make the sauce.
If you’re running low on time, then you can always make a lazy lasagna using these gluten lasagna noodles. Doing this will save you lengthy time by skipping the béchamel and other tedious bits of making a lasagna.

Gluten-Free Lasagna Noodles Recipe
- 2 eggs
- 2 tsp water
- 2 tsp oil
- ¼ tsp salt
- 200g (7 oz) gluten-free plain flour
- In a bowl, add the eggs, water, oil, and salt. Beat together.

- Lightly dust a bench with gluten-free flour.
- Roll out the dough until 2 mm (0.07 in) thick.
- Cut into roughly 5cm (2 in) strips.
- Use as required in your lasagna recipe.
- A pizza cutter makes cutting the lasagna noodles into strips a lot easier. Otherwise, a sharp knife will suffice.
- The trickiest part of this recipe is getting the consistency correct. I recommend slowly adding the flour and monitoring how it goes. It should be a soft but firm ball by the time you’re finished mixing it.
- Try to roll the dough out, so that it's flat with little to no bumps. If the noodles are uneven, you could have some parts of the lasagna that are really thick with pasta and others with barely anything.
- Gluten-free goods can be hard to prepare, so try not to lose patience while making this recipe. Practice makes perfect, and before you know it, you will be popping out excellent gluten-free foods.
