This one of those vegetarian dishes which my family just loves. It is so full of flavour and different textures that everybody feels satisfied after eating this green lasagne.
Unlike a traditional lasagne, there is no need for endless simmering to create a rich sauce. This sauce is made by simply mixing the right ingredients. You might never have tried using egg in a lasagne before, but I can promise you it is a perfect match with the ingredients in this dish. It also helps you get you protein intake for the day.
Like an oven bake, I like to make this dish a day or two in advance. This helps me stay organised with our busy schedules.
If you are an avid meat lover you could easily add bacon cubes or pancetta to the mushroom mix.
