I’ve been wanting to use up my stash of rice paper for a while, but have been too lazy to make the spring rolls I originally bought them for.
Then, I noticed that these…
…are the same size as this
Immediately, I thought casserole. Asian casserole! A coconut curry sauce? Layers of bean sprouts and tofu? But I didn’t have any ingredients on hand for that.
Here’s what I did have
Giada’s pasta sauce from Target
Layer as usual – sauce, rice paper…
…spinach mixture, rice paper…
…all the way to the top (5 pieces) with a sprinkle of parm cheese
45 minutes at 375 (covered with foil for the first half hour) – let cool for 10 before cutting
As you can see, it’s not really layers, more of a blob. In fact, you can’t really taste the rice paper at all – it sorta melts into the rest of the casserole, and adds a nice gooey texture. If you’re gluten-free and miss lasagna, try this – both Abe and I really liked it!
I followed dinner with more gluten-free goodies
Frozen fruit because I was too lazy to wash and chop anything fresh
What should I do with the rest of those rice paper wrappers? Other than spring rolls (or lasagna)?!?
