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.

"Prepared the recipe as pretty nearly as directed and turned out quite good, but in the future I would change the following: 1) Onion Filling - 3 Lg. Sweet onions were not enough, I'd add another one for a total of four. Also, I used 2...

Sooooo good!

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.

lots of veggies without the boring veggie taste

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!!!

THE BEST vegetarian recipe I have EVER tasted!

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!

Couldn't stop eating it
Worth the effort

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.

The best lasagna ever!

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.

Delicious, healthy ingredients, easy clean up
