It's possible to make this with or without the no-boil lasagna noodles. If you include them, the dish will become more robust, but it's still a delicious and gluten-free supper without them.
For the tomatoes, you can use a dish full of fresh tomatoes that have been diced up for the sauce, but you can skip the chopping step and use a 28 ounce can of diced tomatoes instead.
