DISCLAIMER:  This recipe is not for dieting. If you are dieting – try a different recipe – maybe the  Garlic Kale Chips or Roasted Garlic Sweet Potatoes or even the Arugula Caprese Salad, but not this one! However, if you are looking for a DELICIOUS and DECADENT vegetarian (not vegan) dish that you can share with friends. This is the one!

Just imagine serving this to your friends with cheese pulls galore when you scoop a serving from the pan as the steam rises from the baking dish – your friends eyes will go wide with delight!

If you are worried about all of the cheese, butter and cream, I think you should remember that  a small piece of  anything won’t hurt – especially if you are enjoying it on the weekend with a salad and a glass of wine.

Besides, there is just something magical about the combination of mushrooms, spinach, garlic and cheese. That is a powerhouse right there. POW!

This dish is like a grown up exotic macaroni and cheese – I mean, yumtastic! I’m pretty sure that kids will like it too. They  might exclaim, “I don’t LIKE spinach”. Just don’t tell them it’s spinach, they will never know the difference – it will be our little secret. In fact, my own teenager, who will only eat a vegetable under duress (as in, “you can’t go out with friends until you eat your veggies” – no, we don’t tell her that – but that is what it would take) even ate TWO helpings and said, “Mom, this is good!” – see, I never told her it was spinach – what she doesn’t know might even be good for her!

I’ll let the pictures say the rest.

I DO want to say one thing – totally off of the subject of food. God is so good! I had a day of dismal failure  yesterday. First thing in the morning there was another REJECTION in my in box for my chili recipe/picture. Then I got some worrisome personal news. On my lunch break, I tried to take advantage of the sun to take pictures for some upcoming posts to loaves and dishes – nothing worked right. Then after I finished my day job – which was frustrating, I worked and worked and worked on this website until WAY past my bed time. I couldn’t make ANYTHING work right. I worked on my FTP – which I must have so that I can do things like have a Loaves and Dishes Pintrest page and  other things to make this foodblog viable. I did not make that FTP thing work. Once I gave up on that,   I worked on trying to get my favicon to work (the little square up on the tab on this page. It took me forever to figure out how to design one! Yesterday’s problem was how to get it the right size and format  for all of the various applications. Anyway, I couldn’t get that to work either.

Last night as I went to bed, I prayed, “Please God, if you want me to do this thing and use it to praise you – you have to cut me a little slack – I need for something to work – I need a little good feedback”. This morning,  while I was half asleep – it came to me how I could make that favicon work. Guess what??? You see it up there don’t you? A small green box with the letters L & D? I hope you see it! YIP YIP YIPEEE!!! God helped me with that one!!!

And – although I didn’t get any more acceptance letters for submissions to foodblog photo websites – at least I didn’t start the day with a REJECTION letter. I am not taking it personally – its just a thing. Anyway, enough about that. Thank you God, I needed a little help.

Let’s eat ya’ll!

 

But I am like an olive tree flourishing in the house of God; I trust in God’s unfailing love for ever and ever. ~ Psalm 52:8

Ingredients

  • 9 Lasagna noodles – cooked according to package directions
  • 2 Tbs of butter plus 6 tbs butter
  • 1 medium sweet onion – large dice
  • 8 oz package of Baby Bella mushrooms - quartered
  • 8 oz package of button mushrooms - quartered
  • 2 cloves garlic – minced
  • 2 Cups fresh spinach – chopped
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 1 block cream cheese
  • ½ Cup heavy cream
  • ½ cup whole milk
  • 1 Cup freshly grated Parmesan Cheese domestic is fine
  • ¾ C freshly grated Asiago cheese
  • 1 lb fresh mozzarella
  • 4-8 sprigs fresh Thyme - chopped
  • 2-4 sprigs of fresh basil - chopped
  • 2-4 sprigs of fresh oregano - chopped

Instructions

  • Preheat the oven to 300
  • Place 9 lasagna noodles in boiling water (lightly salt the cooking water) and cook per package directions, remove from heat and drain.
  • In a large skillet, melt two tablespoons of butter over medium heat then add the onions and mushrooms. Cook until the mushrooms have released their water and the onions are translucent. If the onions caramelize a little – even better! Turn the heat off and add the garlic and spinach to the pan and place a lid on the skillet and let the spinach wilt. Salt lightly to taste. Add pepper to taste. Stir frequently.
  • In a separate pot, on medium low heat melt the rest of the butter, add the cream cheese, cream and milk and stir frequently until melted. Add parmesan cheese and asiago cheese. When melted, remove pan from the heat.
  • Spray a 9x9 heavy baking dish with cooking spray. Apply two large spoonfuls of the cheese mix to the bottom of the 9x9 baking dish. Layer lasagna noodles, mushroom/spinach mixture, cheese sauce, fresh mozerella, fresh herbs and repeat ending with fresh mozzarella on top - reserve a small sprinkling of herbs for finishing the dish after cooking.
  • Bake x 35 mins and place oven on “broil” for the last 5 minutes to develop a browned crust on the top of the lasagna. Sprinkle with remaining fresh herbs when removed from oven.

Wendi, as I was reading your comments at the very top of this page, I had failed to see the little green box you were mentioning above with the letters L & D. It is not showing up for me on my computer. I am so happy to know that God helped you with the favicon.

Wendi. I just wanted to tell you, that I made this wonderful recipe last evening (May 31st 2018) it was my first time ever making lasagna. The preparation was lengthy, but WoW! it was so yummy.It turned out really great, I did add a small container of ricotta cheese to the recipe, only because I had it in my frig, and wanted to use it up. Thank you for a great recipe. Have a glorious day in the Lord. Please continue with your bible verses. I Love them.

I served this last night at my first-ever dinner party. It was delicious and no one noticed that the entire menu was vegetarian! I used more garlic in mine as well as a selection of meatier mushrooms (portobello, cremini and oyster) with a larger volume and fresh lasagna sheets. My oven doesn't allow for broiling AND I had to transport it right out of the oven by cab - and it still turned out great. So glad I found this when I searched for "decadent lasagna."

EMILY! I am SO EXCITED that you enjoyed this dish! Apparently it is turning into a dinner party super star! I can't believe you had to transport it via cab though! That is so far removed from where/the way I live (way way on out in the country). By all means - use the spices and ingredients that appeal to you! I always think more garlic and mushrooms can never be wrong! :) Thanks for visiting and cooking and please come back soon!

Doubled the spinach in this recipe because I was feeding several! Easy to follow directions were so helpful!
