Notes









Tips

Expert Tips

  • You can grill the zucchini and portabella mushrooms for this lasagna instead of broiling them. Just be sure to drain them well and pat them dry.
  • Smoked mozzarella is not expensive but is a specialty item. Look for it in the deli case, not the cheese dairy section, of most larger grocery stores.
