      Great recipe, but please review and indicate CARROTS and also the addition of the milk in the Bechamel Sauce is missing.

      We did one minor change which we really liked. The purist might disagree! Instead of lasagna noodles, we use fresh wonton wrappers which makes a buttery soft "noodle". It is faster and delicious. Thanks for posting!!

      I am puzzled as to why this recipe received 5 stars! Very labor intensive, costly and the end result is a terrible mix of vegetables, herbs and spices. Both my husband and I couldn't finish more than two bites.
