Lasagna and pizza are probably the most famous Italian imports, but are usually not translated authentically.
Just as there is no pepperoni on pizza in Italy, there is no ricotta cheese in lasagna either. The entire city of Bologna would riot if you brought them a lasagna with ricotta in it.
They take their pastas extremely seriously and a besciamella sauce is the only sauce that is in a lasagna.
The mushrooms are hearty, and the rich sauce with the fresh pasta is comforting.
I love to serve these to my guests in individual-sized lasagna pans, Mushroom Lasagnette means “small lasagna”, but the recipe is just as tasty served in a traditional pan.
