Chicken Portobello Lasagna


RestOfNewsletterIf lasagna isn’t your favorite food we bet it’s at least in the top 10.  If it’s possible to get tired of ground beef, cheese, more cheese, and tomato sauce then Drew is ready to ride to your rescue.  His recipe doesn’t have the ground beef but don’t worry, the cheese is still there, and there’s Portobello mushrooms you probably never even expected.  Buon Appetito!

  • (1) tbsp. buter
