Decadent Lasagna With Bolognese & Bechamel Sauce

Decadent Lasagna With Bolognese & Bechamel Sauce

This Lasagna is out of this world as Linda and her boys can attest to. My hubby says it’s the best Lasagna he’s ever had and I for one love to eat it. It’s not the easiest lasagna to make but it is the best I’ve ever made. I always make it after I’ve made a traditional Bolognese. This is the perfect dish for a cold Sunday afternoon when you just feel like cooking…

Decadent Lasagna With Bolognese & Bechamel Sauce
1 box lasagna noodles cooked according to box directions
1/2 lb sliced Provolone cheese
1 16 oz package whole milk mozzarella cheese
2 Tablespoons and 2 cans diced tomatoes drained, rinsed & roasted under broiler for 20 minutes
1 bunch fresh basil
4 cups Bolognese sauce (to follow)
2 cups Bechamel sauce (to follow)
1 cup Pecorino Romano cheese
4 oz Perfect Pesto or store bought pesto
1/4 cup pine nuts roasted

Begin by starting the Bolognese sauce…
