Mushroom Matzoh Lasagna

As I have mentioned before, living near Kennet Square, PA, the Mushroom Capital, mushrooms are quite a local food.  They are also one of Lauren’s favorites.  Thus, mushroom matzoh lasagna when she came home for the weekend.

This recipe is adapted from one I found on a few years ago.  The changes I have made are relatively minor, but this version was by far the best I have made.  This is an excellent vegetarian recipe for Passover.  It goes really well with a good salad, and makes a very colorful plate.
