This dish is elegant and delicious; no one will guess that it is so quick and easy. To save time, I have utilized the Basic Cream Soup Mix to make the creamy sauce, leftover turkey from our holiday dinner, and oven ready lasagna sheets so no precooking of the pasta is necessary. The dish can be made a couple of days ahead and kept refrigerated. If you like creamy pasta dishes, this one is definitely worth a try!
White Lasagna with Turkey, Mushrooms, & Artichoke Hearts
3 cups basic Cream Soup Mix
6 cups water
salt and freshly ground pepper, to taste
2 tablespoons butter
1/2 pound fresh mushrooms, sliced
1 medium onion, chopped
1 12 oz. package artichoke quarters
2 cups diced turkey
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
1 12 oz. package Oven ready lasagna
4 cups grated mozzarella cheese
2 cups freshly grated Parmesan cheese
chopped fresh parsley
Mix the Cream Soup Mix and water; whisk over medium heat until boiling and thickened. Taste for salt and pepper; add if necessary.
Melt the butter in a large skillet; add the mushrooms and onions. Cook over medium-high heat, stirring occasionally, until the liquid has evaporated. Stir in the artichokes, turkey, salt, and freshly ground pepper.
Pour enough of the cream soup mixture over the bottom of a 9 x 13" casserole dish; top with three of the lasagna sheets (not touching because they will expand). Spoon 1/3 of the mushroom/turkey mixture over the lasagna sheets; sprinkle evenly with 1 cup mozzarella cheese and 1/2 cup freshly grated Parmesan. Top with about 1/4 of the cream soup sauce. Repeat twice, then add the remaining three lasagna sheets and the remaining cream soup sauce. Evenly spread the top with the remaining cheeses and sprinkle paprika over all.
Bake in a preheated 350° oven for 45-60 minutes or until bubbly. Remove the lasagna from the oven and let sit 15 minutes before cutting.
Note: this can be made up to 1 day ahead, covered, and refrigerated. Baking time will be slightly longer.
