  • Portion size 8 servings

Ingredients

  • 12 lasagna noodles (8 oz/250 g)
  • 2 cups shredded provolone cheese
  • 2 cups shredded mozzarella cheese
  • 1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese
Cheese Filling:
  • 1 tub (475 g) extra-smooth ricotta cheese
  • 1 egg
  • 1 cup shredded provolone cheese
  • 1 cup shredded mozzarella cheese
  • 1/4 cup chopped fresh parsley
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
Mushroom Sauce:
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 onion chopped
  • 4 cloves garlic minced
  • 1 carrots chopped
  • 1 celery stalk chopped
  • 8 cups sliced mushrooms (1-1/4 lb/625 g)
  • 1 cup vegetable stock
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper
  • 1 bay leaf
  • 1 can diced tomatoes
  • 1/4 cup tomato paste

Method

Mushroom Sauce: In saucepan, heat oil over medium-high heat; cook onion, garlic, carrot, celery and mushrooms, stirring, until no liquid remains, 15 minutes.

Add stock, salt, pepper and bay leaf; cook, stirring occasionally, until reduced by half, about 5 minutes. Add tomatoes and tomato paste; bring to boil. Reduce heat and simmer until thick enough to mound on spoon, about 20 minutes. Discard bay leaf. Set aside.

Cheese Filling: Meanwhile, in bowl, stir together ricotta cheese, egg, provolone cheese, parsley, salt and pepper. Set aside.

In large pot of boiling salted water, cook noodles until almost tender, 6 to 8 minutes. Drain; chill under cold water. Arrange in single layer between damp tea towels.

Spread 1 cup (250 mL) of the mushroom sauce in 13- x 9-inch (3 L) glass baking dish. Top with one-third of the noodles; spread with one-third of the remaining mushroom sauce, then half of the cheese filling. Starting with noodles, repeat layers once. Top with remaining noodles; spread with remaining mushroom sauce. Sprinkle with provolone and Parmesan cheeses. (Make-ahead: Refrigerate until cold. Cover with plastic wrap and overwrap with heavy-duty foil; freeze for up to 2 weeks. Thaw in refrigerator for 48 hours. Increase covered baking time by 15 minutes.)

Cover loosely with foil; bake in 375°F (190°C) oven for 30 minutes. Uncover and bake for 15 minutes or until bubbly. Let stand for 10 minutes before serving.
