  1. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees. Oil an 11 x 9 x 2-inch baking pan. Set aside. Make the Bechamel Sauce and Mushrooms as outlined.
  2. Bring a pot of salted water to a boil. Add in the lasagna noodles and cook just until tender but still firm. They will continue to cook as you bake the lasagna. Drain the pasta.
  3. Spread about ¼ cup of bechamel sauce evenly over the bottom of the dish. Lay a single layer of noodles to cover the sauce. Spread on half of the mushrooms and cover with noodles. Spread 1 cup of the béchamel sauce and half of the Parmesan. Cover with another layer of lasagna noodles. Layer the remaining mushrooms, cover with another layer of lasagna and spread the remaining béchamel on top. Sprinkle with the remaining grated cheeses and breadcrumbs.
  4. Cover and bake for 20 minutes. Then uncover and bake for another 20 minutes or until the top is golden brown. Remove from oven and allow to cool slightly. Serve.

Chef Tips

Barilla sells pre-cooked lasagna sheets. They’re not whole wheat, but they are a time-saver.
