Rich, thick and creamy. Mushrooms, ground beef, noodles and cheeses are layered together to create this comforting dish.
Ingredients
  • 2 cups fresh mushrooms, sliced and chopped
  • 6 Tbsp butter or margarine
  • 2 Tbsp cornstarch
  • 2 tsp GF soy sauce
  • ¾ cup GF sour cream
  • ¾ cup milk or milk alternative
  • ¼ tsp pepper
  • ½ tsp salt
  • 2 Tbsp olive oil
  • 2 cloves of garlic, chopped
  • 1 medium onion, peeled and chopped
  • 1 lb ground beef
  • 2 cups ricotta cheese
  • ¼ cup Parmesan cheese, grated
  • 2 Tbsp dried parsley
  • 1 large egg
  • 3 cups GF elbow macaroni
Instructions
  1. In a saucepan melt butter, then sauté mushrooms until tender. Sprinkle with cornstarch and stir until well blended.
  2. Add the soy sauce and sour cream to the mixture and stir until well. Slowly pour in the milk while stirring rapidly. The sauce should start to thicken slightly as it boils. Make sure the heat isn’t up too high – keep it on medium otherwise the sauce may start to burn. Season to taste with salt and pepper. Set aside.
  3. In a skillet, heat oil with garlic and onions, sautéing until soft. Add in the ground beef, then once cooked all the way through, add in the mushroom sauce mixture.
  4. In a medium mixing bowl combine the cheeses, parsley, egg, and season with salt and pepper if you like. Stir until well mixed. Set aside.
  5. Follow the package instructions for cooking one box of gluten free elbow macaroni. Drain, rinse and set aside.
  6. To assemble casserole, grease a 9x13 baking pan and place a layer of noodles on the bottom followed by the cheese mixture, then the meat/mushroom mixture. Continue layering until you reach the top of the pan. Sprinkle the top with extra Parmesan cheese if you like.
  7. Bake at 350°F for 30 minutes, until the top is golden. You may want to cover it with foil halfway through the cooking process to prevent it from drying out.
