    Want to cook this but NO MUSHROOMS listed in ingredients. Will guess one punnet (150g)?

    Lovely combination of ingredients. Took a good 45 mins for the lasagne to cook through. Mmmmm

    Have just had this for lunch and it was a big hit with the whole (grown up) family! Absolutely delicious. Thanks.

    Made this today. It was very quick and easy to assemble. I used frozen spinach and just left it to defrost in the fridge overnight. Delicious!

    Sorry. I tend to use chestnut mushrooms, a tub of them. Think about 250g, I have used normal mushrooms if unable to get chestnut ones.
