Recipe by Miss Erin C.
This is from Rachael Ray. It is really quick and easy. The cream sauce is to-die for! I had roasted asparagus as the side dish.

Love this recipe. It is not the quickest meal to make but it is easy and delicious. I served it with a parmesan sauce. I had some filling left over and put it in a bowl and put some crackers around the bowl and it made a good dip. This works well at parties also. I made the traditional red sauce lasagna and it went fast but everyone that liked mushrooms and spinach was talking about this dish. I did save the left ove juices from the spinach and mushrooms jush in case the filling was too dry. Great dish. Thanks. CC
