From Cooking Pleasures Magazine This is a vegetarian lasagna that can be made for OAMC. To add some variety, try using some wild or exotic mushrooms instead of plain button mushrooms. If you use portobellos, scrape out the dark gills before you slice them, or your sauce will discolor. Directions are included to either make 1 9x13 pan, or 2 8x8 pans.
