  1. Cook lasagna in boiling salted water in a large pot until al dente. Drain.
  2. Meanwhile, heat one half tablespoon of olive oil in a Dutch oven over medium heat. Add the chopped onion, celery, and carrots, stir and cook until onions have softened. Add mushrooms and garlic and continue to cook until the mushrooms have released their liquid, 2 or 3 minutes. Add wine and cook until most of the liquid has evaporated. Stir in chopped tomatoes(include liquid), sun-dried tomatoes, and thyme. Bring to a simmer, then reduce heat to low and simmer until thick. Season with salt and pepper.
  3. To make the white sauce, heat remaining oil in a heavy pan over low heat. Add flour, whisk constantly until the flour begins to turn a light brown. Remove pan from heat and whisk in cream. Season with nutmeg and a pinch of salt. Remove from heat and set aside.
  4. To assemble, spread 1/2 cup of the mushroom sauce in the bottom of a casserole dish, add one layer of noodles, then another 1/2 cup of mushroom sauce. Arrange a single layer of the fresh spinach leaves over the sauce and drizzle them with 1/3 cup of the white sauce. Sprinkle 2 tablespoons of the grated Parmesan cheese over the spinach and top with another layer of the noodles. Repeat 5 times.
  5. In a preheated 375 degree F (190 degrees C) oven bake for 40 minutes. Let stand for 10 to 15 minutes. Serve warm.

I followed this recipe pretty close. Used way more sun-dried tomatos and chicken broth instead of the wine. I only made about 1/2 of the white sauce. I liked it but it was missing the WOW facto...

I brought this to a big party and it was a big hit! One suggestion: Let the cream mixture thicken a bit before removing it from the heat. Otherwise, it's very runny.

THIS IS ONE OF THE BEST LASAGNAS I HAVE EVER MADE. I USED MILK INSTEAD OF CREAN THOUGH. I ALSO ADDED ROMANO CHEESE. VERY ADDICTIVE. THANKS, M. STOCK

Very good recipe, but next time I would probably omit the cream. When combined with the "marina" sauce, there was way too much sauce. It would probably be great without the cream as the red sauc...

My daughter was coming to dinner and informed all of us she had become a vegetarian. I was at a loss to figure out what to serve as a main entree. This recipe filled the bill. Everybody loved...

My family loves this recipe - they say it tastes even better the second day. Takes work to make it but worth it. I add a whole package of Sun-Dried Tomatoes - it really make a difference.

I made this for a friend who is allergic to mushrooms so I omitted them. I added cream of chicken soup into the vegetable mixture after it had simmered and thickened. when my friend tasted it sh...

We sauteed chicken and mushrooms in olive oil and white wine and added it to the lasagna, made it really good.
