This is a great recipe for veggie night because it has robust flavors. If you have left overs it also does really well as a side dish to a simple meat dish (grilled pork chops or baked chicken for example) as it has both carbohydrates and vegetables. It keeps well in the fridge for at least 2 days after baking (that's how long it took our 2 person household to eat the entire thing). It does take a while to prepare, but that is the nature of lasagne.
Caramelized Onion Lasagna
From EatingWell: May/June 2008
This unusual lasagna with portobello mushrooms, sweet onions, spinach and Gorgonzola cheese has a rich, complex flavor. It's also great with goat cheese instead of Gorgonzola, if you prefer.

I used goat cheese in place of the gorgonzola, and added the (suggested) extra onion, which I cooked for much longer than 25 minutes for a more complex sweetness. I didn't have fresh basil, so I used fresh parsley and dried basil. Skipped the walnuts and basil topping. It was perfect! I thought the amount of sauce was spot-on, and that all of the veggies combined for a perfect taste. Will definitely make again!!!
My friend made this last night and told me where to find it when I begged her for the recipe. As I understand it, she doubled the sauce and used white no boil noodles. Other than that, she's a pretty good rule follower. The complexity of flavors was amazing. It did not taste oniony or mushroomy or spinachy. It was just a wonderful combination of flavors and textures. I can't wait to try making it myself-I'll just allow lots of time to create wonderfulness!
After reading lots of reviews I took some of their suggestions: I used one more onion (total of four) and made half again more sauce. I also used no boil lasagna noodles and NOT whole wheat, just don't like 'em. The other change was substituting pine nuts for walnuts and it turned out to be a good choice. I put 2 cloves of minced garlic in the oil for the white sause as well as a pinch of nutmeg. I also added some grated Romano cheese to finish the sauce. I loved the delicate flavors and would make again with the changes I made to this great recipe.
I have never made a lasagna before and was concerned that I would mess it up and it would be a waste of time. Boy I was wrong. This is fantastic, the most delicious lasagna ever! It was simple to make, although time consuming but totally worth it. I bought gorgonzola and tried it but despised it so I used feta instead. Also I didn't use walnuts because I don't like them. The flavors taste incredible together. My fiancee absolutely loved it too, he ate half the lasagna in 2 days.
