I decided to pair up two of my favorites - lasagna and potatoes - in this scrumptious dish. Sliced potatoes take the place of noodles, and the comforting blend of flavors is sure to please anyone with a hearty appetite. -Melissa Pokorny, Abbotsford, British Columbia

"I have made this a few times already. I omitted the mushrooms. I also used a lot less of the white sauce (reduced it by at least half of the amount) because I found it too wet. My family loved it."
