"The bechamel adds a little something special to this wonderful lasagna. I like to use part skim ricotta and mozzarella and low-fat milk to cut some of the fat in this dish. You won't notice the difference."

Hello all! As the submitter of this recipe I wanted to point out you should use a lasagna pan not a 9 x 13 dish as stated here. Lasagna pans are a bit larger and you'll have issues with it bubbling over if you use a smaller pan. Happy cooking!
To be honest, this wasn't as fabulous as I was expecting. I followed the recipe as written, with the small exception of adding some Parmesan to the bechamel (it seemed flavorless). For such a decadent recipe, I expected something more... fabulous. It's good, don't get me wrong, but not something I would prepare as a special meal for company.
Awesome .. used Hot Italian Sausage instead of mild. Next time I make this I will use my Deep Stone Baker .. spewed over in the oven :/
I love lasagna and I'm always on the lookout for a new recipe. I was cautious about this recipe since it only had two reviews, but the ingredients seemed fabulous so I thought I'd try it - I am VERY glad I did! This was the best lasagna I've ever made, and easy too! I followed the recipe completely, only adding more mozzarella. I did follow the tip about using a larger pan - I used a ceramic lasagna pan and it fit great. Also, for those of you that have a limited produce section, Baby Bella's are the same as cremini mushrooms.
Very good, I doubled the sausage, added some hot pepper flakes and used a whole 8 oz bin of mushrooms but other that i followed the receipe. Definetly use a deep deep deep lasagna dish.
This was fabulous! I loved the addition of the bechamel sauce. Next time, I would add a lot more Italian sausage.
