Spinach mushroom lasagna recipe with step by step pics – creamy, cheesy vegetarian lasagna made with spinach and mushrooms.

spinach mushroom lasagna recipe

I had got a few requests to post a Vegetarian lasagna recipe. so here is the recipe, which I make on occasions. A lasagna stuffed with a creamy spinach and mushroom sauce. Making lasagna is easy and you can have a variety of sauces that can be added in the layers.

The recipe is baked, so you will need an oven to make it. In case, you do not have an oven, then just add some cooked pasta to the spinach mushroom sauce. Add some cheese (2 to 3 tablespoon). Stir and serve. Won’t be a lasagna but a delicious spinach mushroom pasta dish.

Accompany this lasagna with a starter soup like cream of mushroom soup or tomato soup or any soup and you have a good meal. Do end the meal with a lovely dessert.

  • Add 6 tbsp fresh cream, chopped 4 to 5 basil leaves, 1/2 tsp dry oregano, a pinch of nutmeg powder, freshly crushed black pepper and salt as required. Here you can use herbs and seasonings of your choice. You can also use dried basil instead of chopped basil.

cooking lasagna

  • Now boil enough water in a pan or pot. 
  • When the water comes to a vigorous boil, add 7 lasagna sheets and cook them till they are al dente - meaning cooked but still they have a bite in them. About 7 to 8 minutes.
  • Drain them well and place them separately without touching each other on a tray. You can spread some olive oil on them.

assembling and baking spinach mushroom lasagna

  • In a baking pan or casserole, spread 1 to 2 tbsp tomato puree. You can also use tomato sauce or tomato ketchup. If using tomato ketchup the lasagna will have a sweet taste, which goes well with kids. For the tomato puree, just blanch one medium to large tomato in hot water for 10 to 15 minutes. Peel and then puree it in a blender or mixer.
  • Now spread one lasagna sheet. Depending on the type and size of the pan, you will have to slice the sheets to accommodate them in the pan.
  • Now spread 1/4 portion of the spinach mushroom filling evenly.
  • Sprinkle with 2 to 3 tbsp of grated or shredded cheese.
  • Place another sheet of lasagna. Spread 1 to 2 tbsp of tomato puree/sauce/ketchup on it. Then top with 1/4 of the spinach mushroom filling. Then add 1 to 2 to 3 tbsp grated cheese.
  • Repeat again with the same layers as above till you come to the last layer. Just spread the tomato puree on the last layer and finish off with the remaining grated cheese.
  • Bake spinach mushroom lasagna in a preheated oven for 180 degrees celsius for 15 to 20 minutes or till the cheese melts or gets golden.
  • Allow to rest for 15 to 20 minutes and then serve spinach mushroom lasagna warm.

  1. Hi,
    So I wanted to make this lasagne but I have brunella lasagne sheets and on that boiling is not mentioned.
    On packet they have asked to cook it for 40 mins in oven.
    So what to do?

    1. follow the package instructions and make the lasagna. these are pre cooked lasagna. you can also cook the lasagna sheets in boiling water for 1 to 2 minutes and then use them, so that they do not dry out while baking.

  2. Hi Dassana,

  3. Hi Dassana,
    What serving dishes do you use for displaying the finished dishes? The quality looks good and the white ones seem hard to get on the Internet. Which brand have you used and from where?4 stars

    1. the plate used here is a corelle white plate. got it from a local super store. corelle has white plate, small bowls and serving bowls also. you can check on the net. i agree white is difficult to get on the net. usually what they have is off white or cream.
