Mighty Mushroom Lasagna For The Busy Cook

Updated on November 16, 2009

What, no tomato sauce?

Quick and easy, this recipe uses ready-cooked lasagna, canned soup, and pre-shredded cheese For the extremely time-impaired meal-maker, you can even buy the mushrooms pre-sliced, as well as the garlic pre-chopped in a little jar.


2 T olive oil
2 cloves chopped garlic (1 tsp from the little jar)
1/2 lb ground beef
1/2 lb ground pork
1 can cream of mushroom soup
1 cup sliced fresh mushrooms
1/2 c heavy cream
1 box ready-cooked pasta sheets (like Barilla oven-ready lasagne)
2 lbs shredded cheese blend (like Kraft Italian or Pizza blend)


1) Brown beef and pork in skillet with olive oil and garlic on medium heat,
season with salt and pepper and drain the fat
2) Add soup, cream, and fresh mushrooms to meat mixture, stir well and cook over low heat,
just until mushrooms softened.
3) Butter large casserole dish, cover bottom with one layer of pasta
4) Spoon 1/3 of the meat mixture over pasta
5) Repeat layers, ending with meat mixture
6) Top with cheese and cover with foil
7) Bake in pre-heated 350 F (180 C) oven for 30 minutes, remove foil and return to oven for additional 5 minutes.

Experiment with changing the meats, soup, and cheeses for a whole different dish!

      Pollyannalana, I think this recipe would be great meat-less, maybe even using a variety of mushrooms.

      Great recipe, I gave up beef of any kind and no longer have high cholesterol so I have thought of using lots of mushrooms to replace the meat so I will try your recipe minus the beef. Thank you.

      Since my toddler has a bad reaction to tomatoes, I haven't made lasagna in ages. This is such a great alternative. I'm bookmarking this. Thanks elisabethkcmo.

      Wow, is that simple or what? Even for someone like me who would rather eat lasagna than cook it! :)
