A lasagna made with peas, mushrooms and italian sausage in a white sauce instead of a typical tomato sauce. This recipe was first introduced to me by my Italian sister in law. It might take a bit of extra time to make (maybe a few extra pans) but believe me it is well worth the effort! http://anitalianinmykitchen.com/2014/01/27/white-sauce-lasagna-lasagna-bianca/

Directions

  1. In a small pot of boiling water add peas and cook until tender about 10 minutes, cook sausage in a small frying pan adding a 1/4 cup of water, cook until browned and cooked thoroughly and water has evaporated (watch that it doesn't burn), in a medium frying pan add 2 tablespoons of olive oil, add mushrooms, 1/4 teaspoon of oregano, 1/4 teaspoon of parsley ,1/4 teaspoon of salt and 1/4 cup of water, cook on medium heat until tender and water has evaporated, stirring occasionally , watch that they don't burn. When done, add the drained peas, italian sausage to the mushrooms and combine well. In a large pot melt butter over medium heat, blend in flour and salt, gradually stir in milk , cook and stir over medium heat until mixture begins to bubble and thicken, remove from heat. In a medium baking pan (I used a 12x10) spread a ladle (using a 1/2 cup ladle) of sauce on the bottom of the pan (keeps the noodles from sticking) then doing 4 layers , place lasagna noodles (or strips) on top (I used 4 for every level, 1 noodle break in half length wise to fit the pan if need be), add 1 1/2 to 2 ladles of sauce (spread so that it covers the noodles), 1/4 of the mixture spread on top, 1/4 of the chopped mozzarella, and a 1/4 of the grated parmesan cheese for 4 layers. Bake in 350° degree oven for approximately 20-25 minutes. Let sit for 5 minutes before cutting . Enjoy!
  2. *the new oven ready lasagne (no boiling needed) is a perfect alternative. I’m sure you can find it in the pasta section of your supermarket.
