Caramelized Onion Lasagna

May/June 2008

Your rating: None Average: 3.9 (109 votes)

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.

Awesome lasagna! A great option for a vegetarian night, which I try to add every so often. I made it exactly as written other than using feta instead of Gorgonzola just because I'm not a fan. For everyone who said it was time consuming.... get over it! I've never met a good lasagna recipe that wasn't time consuming, it's just the nature of the beast. The flavor combinations were wonderful. For me, it's definitely worth making again.

I was waiting for someone to say they used feta...now I will try it. I just don't care for gorgonzola OR goat cheese.
