Meat & Mushroom Lasagna

When u want to keep trying something new but due to all the experimenting, many favourite dishes don’t make a comeback for a long time.

I think it could be over 4 years since I made a lasagna. It makes such an impressive meal with a balance of sauces with the pasta sheets not overpowering the meat here. The cheese hitting just the right spot.
