How To Make White Sauce Lasagna

Lasagna has a few steps of layering, but this dish is worth every second! To make this white sauce lasagna recipe:

  • Cook lasagna noodles according to box instructions. You will need 15 noodles for this recipe. Drain and set aside.
  • Make the cheesy cream sauce. In a medium saucepan, melt butter over medium high heat. Add garlic and mix until butter is completely melted. Next, add flour, a little at a time, whisking so the butter and flour combine into a creamy mixture. Then, add milk, 1 cup at a time, continuing to whisk. Once all milk is added, keep whisking for about 5-7 minutes, until sauce thickens. You’ll want to make sure you keep on stirring, so it doesn’t burn. Last, add salt and pepper to taste.

White Sauce Lasagna Variations

This lasagna is super easy and packed with flavor, but you can still customize it to your palate with a variety of different ingredients.

  • Meat: Add cooked ground beef, sausage or chicken into the spaghetti sauce before layering.
  • Sauce: Use a spaghetti sauce variety based on the flavors you want to give this lasagna. If you like a little spice, use a spicy marinara sauce.
  • Add-ins: You can add other ingredients to the spaghetti sauce before layering, such as cooked mushrooms, spinach or artichoke hearts.

How To Reheat Lasagna

To reheat a whole lasagna from the refrigerator, heat it covered on the center rack in the oven at 375 degrees F for about 35-40 minutes.

To reheat a single slice of lasagna in the microwave, simply drizzle about 1/2 teaspoon of water over the lasagna and heat it on high for about 2 minutes. Try slicing into the middle of the lasagna to see if it needs more heat. If it needs more heat, cook it a little longer in the microwave in 30 second increments.
