A hearty vegetarian lasagna. You won’t miss the meat!
Where are all the lasagna fans? We worked with our brand partner Monterey Mushrooms to bring you one of the tastiest lasagnas we’ve ever tried. The folks at Monterey know mushrooms. They have been growing mushroom since 1971 and are known for popularizing the portabella. So when we wanted to learn how to craft the perfect mushroom lasagna, we knew they were the people to ask.
Portabella mushrooms are famous for their meaty texture, making them a great substitute for meat. Believe us, you won’t miss the meat in this hearty mushroom lasagna! In addition to portabella mushrooms, this lasagna contains wilted spinach, parmesan cheese, and a homemade white sauce that is pure heaven.
FUN FACT: Portabella and portabello are the same mushrooms. West coasters typically call them portabellas and east coasters typically call them portabellos.
