We enjoy this different, creamy lasagna from my Best of Country Cooking Cookbook collection. With it's lighter ingredients, it makes a lovely and healthy meal. I like to serve it with fresh, steamed broccoli - my DD's favorite green veggie.
- 1 medium onion, chopped
- 1⁄2 cup chopped green pepper
- 3 tablespoons butter, melted
- 6 ounces fresh mushrooms, sliced
- 1 (10 3/4 ounce) can reduced-fat reduced-sodium condensed cream of mushroom soup, undiluted
