Needing something to do Thursday I decided to make a vegetarian lasagna for the first time. I love mushrooms, so researched a few different ones and came up with my own recipe. This could have gone any number of ways but it turned out pretty good.
Quick saute of the mushrooms - cremini, white, and portabello with some garlic and butter. This was just the first batch; lots of mushrooms involved in this creation.
Steamed some spinach then chopped it into this appealing green sludge.
On to the bechamel sauce, which I'm still trying to perfect. I don't use whole milk which could be part of the issue. I stirred in the chopped spinach at the end along with salt and pepper.
The fun part - layering! I used freshly grated parmesan and mozzarella cheese; most recipes I looked at just used parmesan but I love mozzarella!
Forty minutes later - viola! It could have used a bit more punch with the spice combo but it got great reviews. I ended up with way more than I anticipated but good to have some to freeze for later.
