  1. Knead the fresh pasta and let it rest covered; in the meantime, prepare the condiment.
  2. Let the dried mushrooms soften in lukewarm water. Clean and slice the fresh mushrooms.
  3. In a large pan, brown the shallot in butter and oil, add the softened mushrooms (after wringing them and chopping them with a knife). Then add the fresh mushrooms a little bit at a time, while stirring, to prevent them from releasing too much moisture. Add the white wine, and a little bit of salt and pepper.
  4. In a bowl, dissolve Bauer Porcini Mushroom Sauce in 250 ml of cold water, then pour it over the mushrooms. Bring to a boil, stirring, and let it thicken slightly before turning off the heat. Keep warm.
  5. Roll out the dough in thin sheets and cut it into rectangles, based on the baking pan width, then cook it in boiling water for 1 or 2 minutes. Drain the pasta, let it cool down in a bowl with iced water, then dry it on clean unscented dishcloths.
  6. Prepare the soft white sauce.
  7. Slightly oil the baking pan and cover the bottom with the first fresh pasta layer. Spread 1/3 of the mushroom sauce and cover with some more pasta, ham, a thin layer of white sauce and a little bit of Grana Padano. Continue to layer the lasagna. Spread a little bit of mushroom and the remaining Grana Padano on the last layer.
  8. Bake at 180/190° for 25/30 minutes.

NOTE: Use fresh and firm mushrooms.
