This best ever mushroom lasagna recipe is one that I’ve been wanting to share for a long time.
Layers of juicy mushrooms and a mixture of parmesan, mozzarella, and ricotta cheeses makes this every mushroom lover’s dream.
It’s no secret that mushrooms are one of my absolute favorite vegetables.
Pasta + Mushrooms? My DREAM.
The reason why I never got around to sharing this recipe is because I was never able to get any good photographs.
For as insanely delicious as this lasagna is, it is definitely one of the ugliest foods I’ve tried to photograph.
For what it lacks in aesthetics, this lasagna more than makes up for in flavor.
My husband and I have made this SO many times and it is our go to lasagna recipe.
Serve with some crusty garlic bread for total comfort food bliss!
