I need to make lasagne for 8 people. 1 is vegetarian and one is gluten free. The gluten free one will be eaten the next day so can be part cooked, fully cooked and re heated or not cooked at all.

Do I make all 8 veggie and make one separate GF,
ORmake 1 for 6 people and two separate - 1 GF and one veggie ie cooking meat for 7
OR make two smaller - one veggie and one meat and GF?

Or any other options?

I'm not a vegetarian but will happily eat veggie lasagne - unless your non-vegetarian guests are very picky, I would just make a big veggie one and a small gluten-free one.

None of them are fussy, and 4 of them are used to eating veggie to accommodate the vegetarian.

It’s a birthday and they’ve asked for lasagne so it needs to be that.

I'd do all veggie g/f

with butternut squash, spinach, mushroom and walnuts

I would make one large veggie gf one tbh. Vegetable lasagne is lovely anyway.

Brilliant, thanks all.

I would do a nice big meat lasagna

And a smaller dish that was vegetarian/glutenfree (you could replace the pasta sheets with slices of fried aubergine, very delicious too! Make extra as some meat eaters will want some too)

I would make a big one with quorn mince and gluten free lasagne that everyone can eat
But then I'm lazy and don't believe in making life difficult

Much more festive to all have the same; it looks generous

how similar does GF pasta taste? The celiac will be eating separately so I can do hers separately. We have a lot of wheat lasagne sheets so I’d like to use them up tbh!

I would do a large gluten free veggie one. I'm coeliac so only ever do g/f lasagne which I serve to guests (g/f household) and they've never noticed the difference.
Use g/f flour to make white sauce or if you want a short cut, Dolmio white sauce is g/f (double check label).

I’d spotted that about the dolmio sauce. M and S cheese sauce is too.

I use La Buona Vita G/F lasagne sheets from Ocado and really like them. I don't think people would notice the difference.

Personally I'd do one big gf veg lasagne. Saves you any hassle that way as it accommodates everyone! Nothing to say you have to serve any meat.

I would make a regular lasagne for the meat eaters and something else entirely like a veg curry and rice for the vegetarian and the gluten free person.

Trying to find a lasagne to suit all those needs sounds like hard work.

I am a meat eater who loves good vegetarian food but that sounds about the least appetising thing ever. Meat substitutes are grim and I can't imagine gluten free pasta is all that great either.

Just make a decent vegetable curry for everyone, with cashews, or lentils or chickpeas or something if you only want to make one thing. Or split it and add some chicken to half.

It had to be lasagne as someone had asked for it as a birthday meal and everyone else said ooh lovely, lasagne etc.

I did one large and one small, all veggie and gf. The pasta and sauce tasted exactly the same as non GF and only did a small one as the GF person was eating seperately so we could contaiminate the large one with garlic bread crumbs if needed.
