Hearty Portobello Mushroom Lasagna
You know that thing, when what you have planned for lunch is so good that you cannot stop thinking about it, and you end up eating lunch super early because you are looking forward to it so much?
This lasagna is that thing.
I make this recipe at least twice a month, often more. It is so flavorful, and it is so good for you. Packed with nutrient rich kale and tomatoes, hearty mushrooms, and so much vibrant flavor, this is comfort food that won't put you in a torpor.
So you can definitely have this for lunch the next day.
Whatever you call mid morning.

- 2 large baking potatoes
- sea salt and black pepper
- 1 yellow onion, peeled and diced
- 2 garlic cloves, minced
- 3 large portobello mushrooms, stems removed
- 5-6 leaves kale, stems and ribs removed
- 6 no-boil gluten free lasagna noodles
- 3 cups marinara sauce
- Preheat oven to 350 °F.
- Scrub potatoes. Cut potatoes into 3-4 pieces each, all pieces uniform size. Bring water and potatoes to a boil in a large pot; cook until potatoes are soft (25-30 minutes). Drain potatoes, return to pot.
- Using a fork or a masher tool, mash potatoes about half way, so bite size pieces of potato remain. Season with salt and pepper, set aside.
- Chop/rip kale into bite size pieces. In large saucepan over medium heat, sauté onion and garlic in a bit of water. When softened, add kale. Cook several minutes, allowing kale to crisp. Transfer to a plate or bowl, set aside.
- Slice mushrooms lengthwise into one inch strips, then slice each strip into bite size cubes. Add mushrooms and a bit of water to saucepan and cook for several minutes without stirring. After a couple minutes they should start to sear; stir / flip mushrooms to sear other sides. Remove from heat.
- Assemble lasagna: Pour marinara into 8x8 baking dish, to completely cover. Arrange two no-boil lasagna noodles over sauce. Spoon a layer of potato over noodle (using half of the potatoes). Add half of the seared mushroom mixture over potatoes, followed by the kale-onion mixture. Add more sauce, and another two noodles side by side. Follow with the remaining potatoes, the other half of the mushrooms, kale-onion mixture, more sauce and the final two noodles. Cover top noodles completely with sauce.
- Cover pan with aluminum foil, bake at 350 °F for 35-40 minutes, checking that noodles are cooked through.
- Remove from oven and let sit for 5-10 minutes before cutting (to set for an even cut).

I'll make this for my daughter and her boyfriend who are both vegetarian. Looks yummy!

Who do you think you are-
a) Using portobellos AGAIN
b) Adding potatoes to pasta....Way to wreck my Atkins diet.
And by Atkins diet, I mean anti Atkins diet. You've hit a winner here.
I've had vegetable lasagne on my mind for months but have not gotten around to preparing it at home. I especially love the kale addition, Kristina. I was only thinking spinach but this opened up the options for me. Looks delicious!

I like how you use the mashed potatoes as the "glue" in place of dairy. I'd eat this for breakfast, too.

I didn't think I could love a lasagna without cheese, but this looks amazing!
Kristina Sloggett says
ha! I know... but I really don't even miss it, and I *love* cheese.
