My kids voted this my best ever lasagne and it’s their “favourite ever” meal!
We usually have with salad and a good crusty bread.
The creamy white sauce I use for this is also on this site here.

      Hi Kim, thanks for your comment! I love the white sauce too, it was the first “cheesy” one I’d made that was anywhere close to what I was looking for as its so thick and creamy like a bechamel. I tend to just use it as a topping sauce for that reason but you could make a slightly thinner version and use as a macaroni and cheese kind of sauce I guess. Let me know if you give it a go!
