Grandma’s Roasted Asparagus Lasagna

This is a tasty lasanga recipe from my grandma's wonderful collection. It is easy to prepare. While it isn't a traditional lasagna, everyone you serve it to will love this creamy version.

I've tried to find healthier alternatives to this recipe, like using non-fat milk or replacing olive oil cooking spray instead of actual oil. The lasagna doesn't take long to prepare, and the roasted asparagus adds a great flavor.

Directions:

  • Place asparagus and mushrooms in a shallow roasting pan. Lightly coat with some cooking/baking spray. Bake at 450˚ for 8-10 minutes, or until browned. Set vegetables aside. Reduce oven heat to 350˚.
  • In a large saucepan, melt the butter. Stir in the flour, salt, pepper, and nutmeg. Whisk until smooth. Gradually stir in milk. (Make sure you stir constantly to avoid lumps.)

  • Saute onion and garlic until tender. Remove from heat and add the asparagus and mushrooms.
