Lasagna in Tomato Sauce and Mushrooms (D, TNT)
Source: Recipe was printed on a box of Osem lasagna noodles
Serves: 6 to 8

About 12 lasagna noodles (Osem's Pronto lasagna looks like dried pasta, but label says it is pre-cooked)
6 to 8 finely chopped garlic cloves
800g (1 lb. 12 oz.) tomatoes, cut into cubes OR a box of crushed tomatoes (I used canned crushed tomatoes)
2 tbsp. tomato paste (I omitted)
250g (8 oz.) fresh mushrooms, chopped OR 1 can mushrooms (I omitted)
1 chopped onion
2 tbsp. olive oil
1 box sweet cream (250g - 1 cup)
150g (5 oz.) grated hard cheese (I used coins of Mozzarella)
1 tsp. sugar
Salt and fresh pepper to taste
Oregano to taste

Pre-heat oven to 170°C (340°F).

Grease a deep pan and fry mushrooms on high flame, mixing until all liquid evaporates. Add olive oil, onions, garlic and fry for 2 more minutes. Add tomatoes, bring to a boil, add salt, pepper, oregano, sugar and tomato paste.

Add sweet cream and cook on low flame for 2 to 3 minutes.

Grease baking pan, lay down 4 pieces of lasagna, cover with sauce, add another 4 pieces and continue. Cover the top with large amount of sauce. Sprinkle with grated cheese.

Bake in the center of the oven at 170°C (340°F) for about half an hour.

Poster's Notes:
Chef's recommendation:
Before serving cool the dish well, cut into serving portions and warm in the oven.

For those living in the French-speaking Switzerland, sweet cream is creme fraiche, they also have something great called creme acidulee (I don't know about hechcherim) similar to Israeli cream.
