Lasagne with mushrooms & French goat's cheese log
A light, vegetarian lasagne made with goat's cheese and mushrooms. Perfect served with a crispy green salad.
- Preparation: 30 mins
- Cooking: 30 mins
- Serves: 6
What you need:
- 200g mild ripe French goat's cheese log, crumbled or sliced
- 20g dried porcini mushrooms
- 600g mixed Portobello and chestnut mushrooms
- 2 tbsp olive oil, plus extra for greasing
- 2 chopped shallots
- 2 finely chopped garlic cloves
- 2 finely chopped sprigs of rosemary
- Sea salt and freshly ground black pepper
- 50mls white wine
- Large handful of flat-leaf chopped parsley
- 12 sheets of fresh lasagne pasta
For the topping
- 200ml creme fraiche
- 2 larges egg yolk
- 100g crumbled mild French goat's cheese log
What you do:
- Soak the dried porcini mushrooms in a small bowl with enough boiling water to cover. Leave for 10-15 minutes until soft. Scoop out the mushrooms and squeeze out the excess water. Reserve the soaking liquid.
- Peel the large mushrooms and slice them all into roughly the same size slices. Heat a large frying pan with the oil, and then add the shallots, garlic and rosemary. Saute over a medium heat for 4-5 minutes until the shallots are soft. Add both the soaked and fresh mushrooms to the shallots and garlic with some salt and pepper and saute over a high heat for 2-3 minutes.
- Add a splash of white wine and a little of the reserved soaking liquid from the porcini. Season with salt and pepper and add in the chopped parsley. Leave to cool.
- To make the topping, beat the creme fraiche, egg yolk and crumbled mild French goat's cheese log together in a bowl with salt and pepper.
- Lightly grease an ovenproof dish, measuring about 20 x 30cm, with olive oil. Cover the bottom of the dish with a layer of the mushroom mixture, followed by some of the mild French goat's cheese log. Arrange a layer of lasagne sheets on top, then repeat the layering process twice more, finishing with a layer of lasagne.
- Pour the topping over the lasagne, sprinkle with the remaining mild French goat's cheese log.
- Bake for 30 minutes or until the topping is golden brown and bubbling. Leave the lasagne to stand for 5-10 minutes before serving.
