Mushroom & Spinach Lasagna

After two no pasta/noodle free Lasagna , i couldnt resist to prepare my kids favourite lasagna with lasagna pasta. Actually am running this week's blogging marathon with Lasagna for Veggie lover, obviously vegetarians will enjoy thoroughly this vegetarian version of lasagna. My today's post is loaded with mushroom and spinach. I used buttom mushrooms and fresh spinach for the filling with white sauce  and cheese. Easy to make, this lasagna makes an excellent meal as this ultimate dish is definitely a satisfying dish for anyone. Whoever like Lasagna will definitely enjoy this mushroom and spinach loaded lasagna.

Mushroom & Spinach Lasagna

Since my younger one is not a great fan of mushroom, i prepared this lasagna with coarsely grounded mushroom instead of chopping them finely and this works awesome. When sauteed with onions and chopped spinach leaves,the filling for this lasagna gets ready very quickly. If you want to prepare this lasagna easily, just grab some storebought white sauce or bechamel sauce for baking this delicious egg free lasagna. However i prepared white sauce myself and i couldnt stop myself to grab lasagna pasta from stores as i dont want to spend much time in my kitchen by prepare homemade lasagna pasta/noodle.

I love how you've made the mushrooms into a coarse paste for this dish. This way it sticks to the pasta and not fall off. Nice idea and very tempting lasagna. Haven't made one at home in a long time.
