Do you know my favorite part about lasagna? The crispy edges.
Seriously, if I’m not watched I’ll sit there and just pick around the edges, eat all the crispy bits, and leave a weird crustless lasagna left for everyone else.
Luckily my family loves me so they forgive me.
Also, I haven’t made lasagna in forever because the only pan I had was not deep enough.
I would start assembling my lasagna and get annoyed halfway through because my lasagna was most definitely going to overflow in my short little glass pan.
That’s why you’ll want to make sure to use a deep lasagna pan for this recipe.
If you grew up in a house where lasagna was rarely made (my mother SWEARS it was too expensive) you probably did not grow up with a lasagna pan.
However, now that I’m an adult and I have one of these babies I’m 100% on board.
This pan isn’t just your run-of-the-mill lasagna pan. I mean, if lasagna pans can be run of the mill.
This baby is made with durable 18/10 stainless steel with a signature mirror polish finish, it’s handcrafted in Italy, it has ergonomic and elegant stainless handles (so nice for pulling out a heavy meat and cheese filled lasagna!) and it has a fancy cherry wood and stainless steel lid.
Basically, it’s the Italian boss of lasagna pans.
Do you know what else is the boss? This Italian sausage and mushroom lasagna!
It’s almost traditional but with a spicy Italian/mushroom/spinach/red wine twist.
Don’t worry, I didn’t forget to add lots of ricotta cheese and sprinkle (or two. or three. or four.) of Italian cheese.
I actually really love the mad amount of mushrooms in this lasagna because as well know mushrooms give off a meaty texture and I’m all about the meat in my lasagna.
I mean, I love vegetarian lasagna but really just give me the meat.
The thing I might love most about this recipe is the little glug, or two, of red wine that goes into the meat and mushroom mixture.
It leaves the majority of the bottle for drinking alongside the lasagna.
Which is 100% appropriate.
