I'd like to make a lasagna with mushrooms finely chopped and cooked with some Italian sausage to make the base for the meat sauce. However, all I have are Portobello Mushrooms. Will they work for this?

  • I've made lasagna with Portobello chunks. It came out same as with button mushrooms. Diced fine should be OK, haven't done that exact thing. Sauce'll end up looking a little browner than usual. Jul 11, 2018 at 23:23

    @WayfaringStranger I would expect buttons and portobello to give you the same results ;-)

The simple answer is Yes. Of course you can use Portobello in your lasagna. You can dice them up and add them to your sauce, no problem at all.

If that is the end product you want then you should make it that way but I would recommend slicing the Portobello into long thin slices. This will accentuate the lovely texture of the Portobello and you could add a nice layering effect to an already nicely layered dish.

Be sure with whatever method you use you cook them quickly on high heat with a little Salt and Pepper to help bring out their flavor.


I use portobellas in my lasagnas very often.

I would dice them and give them a quick sear in a skillet before throwing them into the lasagna. This will enhance the texture and bring out more flavor.
