Lasagna with White Sauce

I made this for Christmas a few years ago. Boy was this recipe a hit! The pan was gone by the end of the meal. You can shake this recipe up any way you like by adding your favorite ingredients. I might add some roasted red pepper, or some fresh spinach to add some pretty colors to the dish.
