Ham & Mushroom Lasagna {gluten free}

Another day, another long, long day.  I just now looked at the clock and it's 8 p.m., and here I was thinking it was around 6:30 p.m.  How do the evening hours go so fast?  Getting home, dinner, playtime, bath, bedtime.

And I still have one kid yet in bed.

But that is alright, as the last three nights she has slept straight through the night, and this mommy has woken up very refreshed.  I'm sure all you mothers out there with little ones can relate.

Our daycare provider is on vacation this week, so thankfully my mother-in-law offered her time to come and watch the kids while we are at work.  With a guest in the house you have to have good food right?  I whipped up this lasagna on Sunday morning and we are just finishing the last few pieces.  A change up to the regular beef or sausage lasagna, it's a nice variation with the salty ham and chunky, tender mushrooms.

Or course you could add whatever ingredients you like, but this was my version...

Picture quality isn't the greatest, sorry, but trust me, it's delicious:)
Ham & Mushroom Lasagna {gluten free}
1 box brown rice lasagna noodles
1 16 oz. container ricotta cheese
1 c. fresh grated parmesan cheese (more for topping)
1 c. button mushrooms, sliced
8 slices of ham (thinly sliced)
1 t. oregano
1 t. basil
1 t. garlic salt
1 jar spaghetti sauce (or homemade)
mozzarella cheese

Cook noodles according to package directions, rinse and drain.  Mix together ricotta cheese, parmesan cheese, oregano, basil and garlic salt in a small bowl and set aside.  Spray 9x13 pan with cooking spray and ladel in one cup of sauce.  Layer noodles, cheese mixture, ham, mushrooms and sauce.  Repeat layers until reaching the top of the pan.  Top with mozzarella cheese.

Bake at 350 degrees, covered, for 1 hour.  Remove foil and bake another 10 minutes until bubbly.

Who can resist cheesy, ooey, gooey lasagna???

*And before I forget, my turkey meatloaf turned out GREAT on the grill the other night.  It will definitely be a summer repeat*

Happy Hump Day tomorrow!
