  • I've let the Ragu sauce on the stove while i made Bechamel sauce.

For the Bechamel sauce (or white sauce):

  • I melted the butter in a small pot. I added the flour and kept mixing so it doesn't stick to the pot.

  • I quickly added the milk, bit by bit, so i doesn't make lumps. After i mixed all the milk i added nutmeg. I mixed a bit more and took it off the stove.

Now that the sauces are done it's time to assemble the lasagna:

  • I used a heat resistant glass tray. I coated the bottom of the tray with Bechamel sauce, then i arranged a few lasagna noodles which i covered with some more Bechamel. Over this i added Ragu sauce and on top of it a serious layer of mozzarella and parmesan. I arranged another layer of noodles which i covered with Bechamel, Ragu, cheese and noodles. Proceed like this until you have at least three layers of sauces and noodles.
