Open Mushroom Lasagna Recipe

An open mushroom lasagna is a great way to make use of mushrooms. And it is a recipe for when you don’t have the patience to layer up an ordinary lasagne. This is made even easier by using ready to go lasagne sheets.

I went to the farmers market this past weekend to get mushrooms. The usual people I get them from were not there, but I still got some lovely mushrooms even though I spent about R50 more than I normally would have. I love the earthy, meaty texture and taste of mushrooms and this open mushroom lasagna dish is perfect for Meatless Mondays.
