      Wonderful recipe! We don't care for veg lasagna in red sauce. I made extra Bechamel sauce and also added a small container of ricotta. Eliminated the mushrooms and added shredded carrots. Delish. Just the way we like vegetable lasagna.

      Made this for dinner last night and it was enjoyed by all. It was my first time making a vegetable lasagna and it went together nicely. I used about 2 1/2 cups of milk and was glad to have the extra sauce. I made 3 layers and there was enough bechamel sauce for the top, but definitely not too much. Thanks for sharing.

      I used this basic recipe for a chicken lasagna. I found the sauce to VERY thick. I added quite a bit more milk so that I ended up with 4 cups of sauce the consistency of an Alfredo sauce. I also added a little nutmeg, garlic powder and salt for more flavor.
