Umami-Rich Lasagna


The secret to the rich, savory flavor of this lasagna is a bit of soy sauce added to both the sauce and the ricotta mixture.

8 servings


  • 1 (16 ounce) package lasagna noodles

  • 2 tablespoons vegetable oil

  • 1 onion, chopped

  • 1 cup chopped mushrooms

  • 1 (28 ounce) jar pasta sauce

  • ½ cup Kikkoman Soy Sauce, divided

  • 2 cups ricotta cheese

  • 2 eggs, well beaten

  • 2 cups shredded mozzarella cheese


  1. Heat oven to 350 degrees F.

  2. Cook noodles according to package directions. In large skillet, heat oil; add onion and mushrooms and saute until onions are translucent. Stir in pasta sauce and 1/4 cup of the soy sauce; heat through. In medium bowl, combine ricotta cheese, eggs and remaining soy sauce.

  3. Spread a layer of meat sauce on the bottom of a 9- x 13-inch baking dish. Layer with noodles, cheese mixture and mozzarella cheese. Continue layering, ending with a final layer of noodles and meat sauce. Cover with foil; bake 30 minutes. Let stand 15 minutes before serving.
