Ingredients

  • 7 cups milk or water
  • 2 cups cornmeal
  • 2 pounds fresh mushrooms, coarsely chopped
  • 1 medium onion, chopped
  • 3/4 cup chopped sweet red pepper
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 2 tablespoons olive or vegetable oil
  • 1/4 cup soy sauce
  • 1/3 cup all-purpose flour
  • 4 cups half-and-half cream
  • 1 cup (4 ounces) shredded Monterey Jack cheese
  • 1 cup (4 ounces) shredded cheddar cheese
  • 1 cup grated Parmesan cheese

Directions

In a large saucepan, bring milk to a boil. Slowly whisk in cornmeal until blended. Cook and stir until thickened. Spread into two greased 13-in. x 9-in. baking pans. Cover and refrigerate overnight.
In a skillet, saute the mushrooms, onion, red pepper and garlic in oil until tender. Add soy sauce; cook for 8-10 minutes or until liquid is absorbed. Sprinkle with flour; cook and stir until blended. Gradually stir in cream; cook and stir until thickened. Remove cornmeal crust from pans; place one in a greased 4-qt. baking dish (lasagna pan). Top with half of the mushroom mixture; sprinkle with half of the cheeses. Top with the second cornmeal crust and remaining mushroom mixture and cheeses. Cover and bake at 350° for 35 minutes. Uncover; bake 15 minutes longer or until lightly browned. Let stand 15-20 minutes before cutting. Yield: 14-16 servings.
