To prepare mushrooms: Melt butter and oil in a large skillet, over medium heat. Add mushrooms, garlic,salt and red chile flakes. Stir occasionally, cooking 10 –12 minutes, until mushrooms are softened and browned. Set aside to cool.

Spoon marinara sauce into 12 x 7-inch baking dish, reserving 1 cup sauce.
In medium bowl, stir together ricotta, Parmesan, egg and parsley. Scoop into a gallon-sized plastic bag. Clip off corner of bag.
Lay lasagna noodles out flat. Squeeze cheese mixture down center of each lasagna strip. Layer mushrooms over cheese. Sprinkle walnuts over mushrooms. Roll up noodles. Use a gentle touch so cheese doesn’t ooze out of noodle. Place seam-side down in baking dish. Top with remaining sauce. Bake 35-45 minutes, until heated through.
