Italian Sausage, Spinach & Mushroom Lasagna in a creamy Parmigiano Reggiano Cream Sauce baked in Chinet disposable bakeware.
A couple of weeks ago, Chinet® contacted me to see if I would be interested in reviewing one of their new products…a disposable bakeware line called Chinet Bakeware®.
I was THRILLED to say the least because I am already a HUGE fan of Chinet® paper products and only buy their plates when serving on disposable dishes for parties, especially because I owned light colored couches!
The day they arrived I was so excited. I opened the box to find one set of each size along with wonderful packaging, clear instructions, neutral green colors and sturdy disposable bakeware with lids.
They were beautiful and are perfect to take along to a party without having to worry about getting your dish back! I couldn’t wait to get started to see how this paper product was going to hold up in an oven so I decided to make a lasagna for dinner.
How do you make Sausage, Spinach and Mushroom Lasagna?
I didn’t have any marinara sauce in the freezer so I opted to make a cream sauce. I didn’t want all of the added calories of heavy cream, especially since I was using sausage, so I used 2% milk, then thickened it up with a roux.
As for the cheese, I used shredded (since hubby went shopping and couldn’t resist the block of fresh grated Parmigiano Reggiano cheese), but you can use grated as well. The lasagna was incredible, but very rich and had a robust flavor so a small piece with a tossed salad was perfect for dinner.
