Mushroom Alfredo Lasagna

 

 

The alfredo sauce in this lasagna adds a creamy, flavorful taste with little cheese.  I used the base sauce to make a lasagna; although, you could mix the prepared sauce and the mushrooms with any other type of pasta to create a different type of pasta dish.  This recipe may appear a little more intimidating than what I would call “simple” (at least it looks it to me), but the ingredients are fairly basic things that you most likely have on hand already. 

   

Mushroom Alfredo Lasagna

24 oz. portobella mushrooms

1 stick butter

3 T. garlic

1 c. onion, chopped

1 tsp. salt

1 tsp. pepper

1 tsp. paprika

1 tsp. thyme

1/2 cup flour

2 T. olive oil

3 cups milk (NOT skim)

1 1/2 cups parmesan cheese

1 pkg. whole wheat lasagna noodles, boiled according to package directions

 

Wash mushrooms and remove stems from the caps.  Slice mushroom caps and set aside.  Chop mushroom stems.  Melt 1 stick butter in saucepan over medium heat.  Add chopped mushroom stems and cook for about 5 minutes.  Add 3 T. garlic and 1 cup of chopped onions.  Continue cooking for another 5-7 minutes.  Season with salt, pepper, 1 tsp. paprika, and 1 tsp. thyme.  Add 1/2 cup flour and stir.  Slowly whisk in the 3 cups of milk.  Continue stirring until thickened.  Remove from heat and cover, stirring occassionally until ready to assemble the lasagna.

In a skillet, heat 2 T. olive oil.  Add sliced mushrooms and cook until the mushrooms are tender. 

In a baking dish, spoon 1/3 (about 1 1/2 cups) of the sauce.  Layer lasagna noodles over the sauce.  (You may have to cut some of the noodles to make fit)  Layer another 1 1/2 cups of the sauce, or enough to cover, over the noodles.  Pour half of the mushroom mixture over the sauce.  Sprinkle 3/4 cup of parmesan cheese over the mushrooms.  Repeat a layer of noodles, then sauce, then mushrooms, then top with remaining cheese. 

Bake, covered with foil, at 375 for 30 minutes.  Remove foil and continue baking until cheese is bubbly on top. 

 

 

Enjoy!
