Béchamel Sauce

  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • 1 tablespoon flour
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • Pinch of salt, pepper, & freshly grated nutmeg


  • 1 zucchini, diced
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt & pepper
  • 3 ounces fontina cheese, shredded
  • 1/2 cup Parmesan cheese, grated
  • 6 slices bacon, cooked and cut into bite sized pieces
  • 1 egg
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt & pepper
  • 1 cup of your favorite marinara or spaghetti sauce
  • 3 oz smoked mozzarella cheese
  • 4 oven ready (no boil) lasagna noodles


  1. Dice zucchini, add garlic, coat with 1 tablespoon olive oil and season with 1/2 teaspoon each salt and pepper. Roast in an 8×8 baking dish at 400 degrees for 15 mins until soft. Leave oven on at 400, and save the 8×8 dish for the lasagna.
  2. Combine the zucchini, bacon, Parmesan, fontina, egg, 1/2 teaspoon salt and 1/2 teaspoon black pepper in a medium bowl. Set aside.

For the béchamel sauce

  1. Melt 1 tablespoon butter in a heavy medium saucepan over medium-low heat. Add the flour and whisk for 3 minutes. Whisk in the milk. Increase the heat to medium-high. Whisk the sauce until it comes to a simmer and is thick and smooth, about 3 minutes. Whisk a pinch of salt, pepper, and nutmeg into the béchamel sauce.
  2. Pour the béchamel sauce into the bottom of the 8×8 dish. Top with 2 lasagna noodles, the zucchini mixture, 2 more lasagna noodles, the marinara sauce, mozzarella cheese, and a little more parmesan cheese to top.
  3. Cover tightly with foil. Bake at 400 until heated through and the sauce bubbles, about 20 minutes. Uncover and bake until the cheese on top becomes golden, about 15 minutes longer. Let stand for 10 minutes.
