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.
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.

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 large portabello caps and would increase to 3 next time.
2) Spinach & Cheese Filling: Add a couple cloves of garlic to the mixture and a 1/4 cup parmesan. I found the mixture a bit too bland.
3) White Sauce and Topping: I would double the quantity of white sauce to make sure there was plenty to top the dish. Sprinkled extra gorgonzola on top.
Also, considering using italian soy sausage so that it stays meatless, but adds a little kick.
Super Yummy! Will definitely make this recipe again. The whole family agreed this was a terrific recipe despite the long wait for it. Used no boil noodles (although I boiled them for 3 minutes to make sure they would be cooked) and goat cheese instead of Gorgonzola.
Just plan ahead and allow enough time to make this delish lasagne!
This recipe seemed like a good idea, but I was underwhelmed. I thought the flavors didn't mix very well. The caramelized onion/mushroom layer was great, but perhaps next time I would fiddle with the spinach mixture. Just my humble opinion.
We like this lasagna. I did use no boil noodles and chopped the fresh spinach and basil by hand, not in the food processor and it worked great. I will make this again.
