Green Bean Lasagna
{adapted from Southern Living}

1-20oz. bag of frozen french-cut green beans
1 box lasagna noodles
1/4 cup of butter, divided
2 large sweet onions, halved and sliced thin
8 ounces fresh mushrooms, trimmed and sliced
1/4 cup of white wine
1-15oz. container of ricotta cheese
4 cups of mozzarella cheese, shredded
Parmesan Cream Sauce (or jarred Alfredo sauce)
1 1/2 cups of crushed round butter crackers
1/4 cup of french fried onions
3 tablespoons butter, melted

Prepare Parmesan Cream Sauce, recipe found here, or you can use a jarred Alfredo sauce in a pinch.

Preheat oven to 350°. Thaw and drain green beans. Prepare noodles according to package directions (if noodles are prepared before other steps, drain and lay on waxed paper until ready to use.  Do not rinse).

Stir together ricotta cheese and 1 cup mozzarella, set aside.

Melt 2 Tbsp. butter in a large skillet over medium-high heat; add onions, and sauté 15 minutes or until soft and golden brown. Transfer onions to a large bowl, and wipe skillet clean.

Melt remaining 2 Tbsp. butter in skillet; add mushrooms, and sauté 4 to 5 minutes or until tender. Add wine, and sauté 3 minutes or until liquid is absorbed. Add mushrooms and green beans to caramelized onions in bowl; toss.

Layer 1 cup Parmesan Cream Sauce, 3 noodles, half of green bean mixture, and 1 cup shredded cheese in a lightly greased baking dish. Top with 1 cup Parmesan Cream Sauce, 3 noodles, and all of ricotta cheese mixture. Top with 3 noodles, remaining green bean mixture, 1 cup shredded cheese, and 1 cup Parmesan Cream Sauce. Top sauce with remaining 3 noodles, 1 cup Parmesan Cream Sauce, and 1 cups shredded cheese.

Bake at 350° for 50 minutes or until bubbly and golden brown. Toss together crackers and next 2 ingredients. Remove lasagna from oven; sprinkle cracker mixture over top. Bake 10 more minutes.  Let stand for 15-20 minutes for easier slicing and serving. 

It’s even more delish left over!
