  1. Pre heat the oven to 375 degrees F.
  2. For the bechamel, bring the milk to a simmer in a saucepan. Meanwhile in a separate pan, melt butter; stir in flour and cook 2-3 minutes. Stir the hot milk into the butter-flour mixture. Whisk vigorously and bring to a simmer; cook for 5 minutes. Remove the pan from the heat. Season with salt, pepper, nutmeg and 3/4 of cheese.
  3. Pour 1/5 of the Barilla sauce and 1/5 of the bechamel into the bottom of a 13x9 baking dish; top with basil. Cover with three noodles and repeat for 3 layers. For the top layer add the remaining Parmigiano cheese and basil. Cover with foil.
  4. Bake until the corners are bubbling and slightly brown, about 20 minutes. Let the lasagna rest for 5 minutes before serving.

Quick, easy and flavorful. Loved it.

My family decided I could cook after I fixed this! I use Italian sausage with a little extra Italian seasoning, garlic and rosemary. I bake it about 40 minutes instead of the recommended 25 because when I tried 25 the center was still cool. You could always check it with a food thermometer before setting out to cool for 15 minutes. Also, I bake homemade bread with italian seasoning, garlic and rosemary in it.

How easy is this...I started making my Lasagna with Béchamel sauce a while back to cut down on ingredients. You really don't need anything more, it's filling and healthier than some recipes. This is a 2 thumbs up, thank you.
