For a fun twist on an old favorite, replace the ricotta in your best lasagna recipe with a mixture of one can of cream of mushroom soup and a quarter cup of milk. It's got more flavor than boring old ricotta cheese anyway, and is much kinder on the wallet.
Don't have a fave lasagna recipe? No problem. To start from scratch on this dish, mix 1 pound of cooked ground beef with 2 cups of the pasta sauce of your choice. Choose a mushroom marinara sauce if you really want the mushroom flavor to pop. In a separate bowl, mix a can of cream of mushroom soup with a quarter cup of milk until the mixture is smooth. Using cooked lasagna noodles, create alternating layers of noodle, beef mixture and soup mixture in an 11 x 7 x 2 inch baking dish. Then top with a cup of shredded mozzarella and bake at 400 degrees Fahrenheit for 30 minutes.
