Chicken & Mushroom Lasagna


2 tablespoons olive oil

1 large onion, finely chopped

1 pound fresh ground chicken

4 ounces pancetta, chopped

3 1/2 cups chopped cremini mushrooms

4 ounces dried porcini, soaked

2/3 cup dry white wine

1 (14 1/2 ounce) can diced tomatoes

3 tablespoons chopped fresh basil

9 dried lasagna noodles

1/4 cup finely grated Parmesan cheese

Mama’s Tip: If you don’t have ground chicken, you can either make your own by putting some chicken meat in a food processor or buy ground turkey instead.

White Sauce

2 ½ cups milk

4 tablespoons butter

½ cup all-purpose flour

1 bay leaf

salt and pepper, to taste


·         Preheat the oven to 375°F. For the white sauce, heat the milk, butter, flour, and bay leaf in a saucepan over low heat, whisking continuously, until smooth and thick. Season with salt and pepper, cover, and let stand.

·         Heat the oil in a large saucepan over medium heat and sauté the onion, stirring, for 3-4 minutes.

·         Add the chicken and pancetta and cook for 6-8 minutes. Stir in both types of mushrooms and cook for an additional 2-3 minutes.

·         Add the wine and bring to a boil. Pour in the tomatoes, cover, and simmer for 20 minutes. Stir in the basil.

·         Meanwhile, bring a large saucepan of lightly salted water to a boil. Add the lasagna noodles, bring back to a boil, and cook according to the package directions. Drain well on a clean dish towel.

·         Spoon one-third of the meat sauce into a large baking dish. Remove and discard the bay leaf from the white sauce. Spoon one-quarter of the white sauce over the meat sauce. Arrange three of the lasagna noodles over the white sauce. Repeat the layers twice, finishing with a layer of white sauce.

·         Sprinkle with the Parmesan and bake in the preheated oven for 35-40 minutes, until the topping is golden brown and bubbling. Serve immediately.
