I always love veggie dishes. Glad to find one.These look good but i think more veggies and less of these butter and cheese is even better. Thanks for posting.

really tasty. somewhat time consuming, but i felt like it was worth it. i substituted whatever cheese i had on hand for the italian cheese blend (including some fresh mozzarella) and it was good. it does make a lot (10x15 dish), i only had 9x13 so i left out one layer.

Excellent recipe. Letting the dish sit 20 minutes is important as it will cut and serve well without falling apart. I would suggest a couple of minor changes or additions. I would use more mushrooms. I believe I would use mozzarella cheese instead of the Italian blend cheese and I would use Pecorino Romano instead of Parmesan. Everything else is good and it was a hit with my family, even my youngest daughter who thought I was kidding her as I'm not know as a non meat lasagna lover.
