  1. Make the bechamel sauce--melt the butter in a medium saucepan; add flour, stir over low heat until smooth and golden, about 3 minutes.
  2. Stir in milk; whisk over medium heat until smooth, about 5 minutes; add chicken broth; cook, whisking, until mixture boils and is thick and smooth, about 10 minutes.
  3. Add 1/2 teaspoon salt, or to taste, and 1/8 teaspoon nutmeg; let stand, off heat, until ready to use.
  4. Cook lasagna noodles in plenty of boiling salted water until al dente, or firm to the bite, about 12 minutes; drain.
  5. Let noodles sit in a bowl of cool water until ready to use.
  6. Heat oven to 350°; spoon about 1/2 cup bechamel sauce into the bottom of a 13 x 9 inch pan.
  7. Lift the noodles from the water individually and blot dry on paper towels; arrange a slightly overlapping layer of 4 noodles on the bottom of the dish.
  8. In a bowl, stir the ricotta, parsley, 2 tablespoons of the parmesan cheese, 1/2 teaspoon salt (or to taste), the black pepper, and 1/8 teaspoon of the remaining nutmeg until blended.
  9. Spread in a layer over the noodles.
  10. Arrange 4 more noodles in an overlapping layer over the ricotta.
  11. Sprinkle with the crumbled Gorgonzola and the shredded mozzarella.
  12. Top with remaining 4 lasagna noodles arranged in a slightly overlapping single layer.
  13. Arrange a single layer of smoked mozzarella slices over the noodles; sprinkle with the shredded fontina cheese.
  14. Pour the remaining bechamel sauce over the top; sprinkle with the remaining 3 tablespoons of parmesan.
  15. Bake until the top is browned and bubbly, about 50 minutes; let stand at least 15 minutes before serving.

I really liked this! I am a cheese fan, although there is a few I could have less of though. I did decrease the amount of gorgonzola, and am glad I did. I think it would of been too overpowering for our tastebuds. Other than that left everything else the same. It was yummy! For the cheese lover for sure!
