For the baked lumaconi

In a large frying pan, fry the finely chopped garlic clove in olive oil. After a few minutes, add the mushrooms and cook them on a high heat for 15-20 minutes, stirring occasionally. Season with salt and pepper. At this point, add 500ml of béchamel, mix and cook for 5 minutes on a low heat.
Meanwhile, cook the lumaconi in plenty of salted water and drain them a few minutes before the time indicated on the packet. Cut the mortadella into cubes and start filling your lumaconi with the mushroom sauce and some diced mortadella. Arrange them next to each other in a baking dish, without overlapping them. Sprinkle with the remaining béchamel and grated Parmesan. Bake at 180 degrees for 10 minutes and then grill for another 5 minutes.
