Portabella Mushroom Lasagna

I am sooooooooooo happy with this one. I tried this and held my breath waiting to test my glucose on this. Well, actually I jumped on the treadmill to try to ward off a high number. After walking a mile and waiting 2 hours from the time of beginning my meal I tested at….. drumroll please…. 83. Isn’t that fabulous?

I made a few changes to the recipe from the original recipe. I am not a big ricotta cheese fan so I cut the amount of it in half and added Parmesan cheese in its place. I used my largest pan and I only had enough space to do one layer of each thing. Instead of using the large portabello mushrooms I used the presliced baby bella mushrooms. After working all day I need ways to cut time in cooking.

My sister told me that this recipe would probably be runny because mushrooms always put off a lot of liquid when they cook. I found that if you actually follow the recipe and let it sit for about 20 minutes it will not be runny. The key is giving the cheese time to cool.

The original recipe came from here:

Spread a small amount of spaghetti sauce in a large baking dish or shallow roasting pan to prevent sticking.
