This is a wonderfully rich lasagna with a creamy bechamel sauce topping. It takes a while to assemble so I usually make it on weekends. The bechamel sauce is completely optional...that's the way I've always made it but you can omit. A Caesar or fresh green salad and garlic bread completes the meal. I hope you enjoy it as much as we do.
