I use to love eating eggplant lasagna before I knew I had celiac. After being diagnosed, I was bummed out when I discovered that my favorite eggplant lasagna at Trader Joe’s had flour in it. 


So, I decided to make my own gluten free version of this eggplant lasagna! It was just as delicious as a remembered it.

I started this blog after I was diagnosed with Celiac Disease. After struggling to adjust to a mandatory gluten free diet, I wanted to create a resource for others trying to learn their way around this gluten filled world.
