This is an extraordinary base formula – make it as-is or add some additional things to make it somewhat heartier! Destroyed chicken, extra Thanksgiving turkey, and frankfurter are largely extraordinary protein choices. You can likewise include any veggies you have hand: I like chime peppers, broccoli, carrots, tomatoes, asparagus, or brussels grows in this formula.
To make this lasagna early, you have a couple of various alternatives. The amassed lasagna solidifies well, however the sauce likewise solidifies well individually. To solidify or refrigerate a collected lasagna, let it cool totally and wrap firmly with saran wrap.
Lasagna can go straight from the ice chest or cooler into a COLD broiler (let the stove heat up gradually with the virus dish officially inside to anticipate any fired or glass dishes from breaking) and prepare for 1-2 hours until cheddar has liquefied and lasagna has cooked through (refrigerated lasagna will commonly possibly take an hour when you begin it in a chilly broiler; solidified lasagna will take somewhat more).

An easy mushroom spinach lasagna recipe with a light parmesan cream sauce. Freezes well – perfect for make-ahead meals!
- 1/2 lb. lasagna noodles (dried or ready-to-bake – see recipe notes!)
- 3 Tbsp. extra virgin olive oil (you could use butter or ghee if you prefer)
- 1/2 large yellow onion, diced
- 4 cloves garlic, minced
- 1 lb. baby portobello mushrooms, sliced
- Kosher salt and pepper to taste
- 1/4 cup flour
- 1.75 cups vegetable stock (you could also use chicken or turkey stock)
- 1/2 cup heavy cream
- 4 cups fresh spinach
- 1.5 cups shredded parmesan cheese, divided
- 8 oz. fresh mozzarella cheese, thinly sliced or shredded
- 1/4 cup chopped parsley for garnish (optional)
GET THE NOODLES READY.
- If you’re using dried lasagna noodles, cook them according to package directions in very salty water until 5 minutes less than al dente. Drain and set aside. I recommend laying the noodles out in a single layer on a lightly oiled baking sheet as soon as they’re cooked – it keeps them from sticking together so they’re easier to work with later! (If you’re using ready-to-bake noodles, you can skip this step – see recipe notes).
MAKE THE SAUCE.
- Heat a large saucepan over medium-high heat. When pan is hot, drizzle in the olive oil.
- Add onion and garlic to pan and stir to combine. Cook 1-2 minutes until onion has begun to soften.
- Add sliced mushrooms to pan and cook, stirring occasionally, for 4-5 minutes until onion is translucent and mushrooms have reduced in size.
- Add salt and pepper to taste and stir to combine (don’t skimp on the seasonings here – salt is what brings out the flavor! I usually add up to 1 tsp. of kosher salt at this step).
- Add flour to saucepan and stir to combine. Let cook for 30 seconds or so to ensure the flour cooks through.
- Add the vegetable stock to the pan a little at a time, stirring as you go to break up any lumps of flour. Bring mixture to a simmer and cook, stirring occasionally, for 8-10 minutes until sauce has begun to thicken.
- Add heavy cream to sauce and stir to combine. Return sauce to a simmer and cook, stirring occasionally, for an additional 8-10 minutes until sauce has thickened to your desired consistency. (The sauce shouldn’t be watery, but it doesn’t need to be quite as thick as, say, a bechamel or a cheese sauce: it will thicken when cheese is added and as it cools, and the lasagna noodles will absorb some of the moisture as it cooks. Watch the how-to video above to see an example!)
- Turn off the heat, then add spinach and 2/3 of the parmesan cheese to the sauce (save the last cup of parmesan cheese for topping the lasagna!). Stir until spinach has wilted and cheese has melted into the sauce.
- Taste the sauce! Grab a spoon and steal a bite – then add extra kosher salt or pepper as needed. (I almost always add another 1/2 teaspoon or so of Kosher salt during this step).
ASSEMBLE THE LASAGNA.
- Heat oven to 375 degrees F (if you plan to bake your lasagna immediately – if you’re freezing it for later, you can skip this step).
- Spread a thin layer of sauce over the bottom of a medium-sized baking dish (I use an 8×10″ dish – see recipe notes). Put down a layer of lasagna noodles, followed by a few ladlefuls of sauce, followed by a few slices of mozzarella cheese. Repeat until you run out of noodles and sauce. Top the final layer with any remaining mozzarella cheese and the rest of your parmesan.
- Bake lasagna for 30-40 minutes until cheese has melted and the edges are lightly browned. (If you’re freezing the lasagna or making it ahead of time, skip this step and see recipe notes).
- Let lasagna cool for 10 minutes before serving. Top with fresh parsley, cut, and enjoy.
