DIRECTIONS

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
  • Cook the lasagna noodles according to the package directions; drain, rinse immediately with cold water and then drain again; toss with 1 Tbsp olive oil and set aside.
  • Melt 2 tablespoon butter in a large sauté pan over medium-high heat; add the mushrooms and cook until golden, about 5 minutes.
  • Reduce heat to medium and add the green onions, shallots, and garlic, and sauté for 3 minutes.
  • Add the drained, chopped spinach, white pepper, and salt, stir well and sauté for an additional 5 minutes.
  • Transfer the mushroom/spinach mixture to a bowl and set aside (do not rinse out this pan - we're going to use it again in the upcoming steps).
  • Over medium heat melt the remaining butter in the previously-used saucepan; add the flour and cook, stirring constantly to keep it from browning.
  • Gradually add the chicken or vegetable broth, cream, and vermouth; cook, stirring occasionally, until smooth and thickened, about 5 minutes.
  • As soon as sauce begins to boil, remove it from the heat and season with thyme and basil.
  • Combine the shredded cheeses together until well mixed.
  • Butter, oil, or lightly spray the bottom of a 9x13-inch baking pan.
  • Pour the half-and-half into the bottom of the baking pan.
  • Lay 4 cooked noodles in a single layer in the pan.
  • Layer with 1/3 each of the mushroom/spinach mixture and shredded cheeses, then coat with 1/3 of the sauce.
  • Repeat the process twice, ending with the sauce.
  • Sprinkle with grated Parmesan (if using).
  • Cover the pan with foil and bake at 350F for 20 minutes, then remove foil and bake 20 minutes longer.
  • Remove from oven and let sit 15 minutes before serving.
  • Makes 8 to 10 servings.
