"White" Porcini mashroom lasagne

It's about 4 p.m. approx and I just finished eating my lasagne... No, I'm not having lasagne instead of bisquits with tea, I'm just getting ready for my forthcoming trip to Madrid by adapting to Spanish eating times! :)
I just wanted to share a super easy recipe and some pics of it, it's about time that I go back posting recipes!


150/200 gr dry lasagna
300 gr fresh (or frozen) porcini mashrooms
2 garlic cloves (whole)
Bechamel sauce (if you're using "cook in the oven" lasagna you need 1 litre of soft bechamel, 1 litre milk, 50 gr butter, 50 gr flour, otherwise about half the milk)
30 gr butter
Parmesan cheese
Mozzarella (I use mixed bufala & cow)

Cut the porcini in smallish lices and sautee them in a pan with the butter and garlic, leave them a bit saucy. Reserve.
Make the bechamel sauce. Reserve
Cut the mozzarella in small cubes. Reserve
Grate the parmesan. Reserve

Make the lasagna (as you usually do or read the instructions on the package!).

Preheated oven 200C for 20/25 minutes.

Let rest for 5/10 minutes (it makes it easier to cut it without it going messy and anyway you don't want pure hot lava in your mouth!).

This looks fabulous darling, and LOVE the new look of you blog... :)

Thank you my friend! I'd been wanting to make changes but didn't have the time (nor I could understand how to do it... the Italian version of blogger instructions is useless, so I went to the English version and was stuck there for ages... all the explanations missed just the basic bit... but a couple of days ago I was illuminated!). said...

Ciao Giulia
the new look is beautiful indeed and I am salivating over the lasagna recipe. Luckily I just had dinner otherwise I would be buting the computer screen!

Hi Giulia,

I just wanted to say I think your blog is lovely. I first came to it through Diana's, and I've had a great time reading through all of your posts. I'll be back often, and I hope to get to your part of Italy some day.
