Addie, HOW fast are you or your driver going? Boston to Rockland is about 180 miles! It's about 4 hours or so from our house, so it would be even longer if we picked you up too. We were there years ago, and I'm not even sure we would recognize which restaurant it was - if it's even there anymore. We will have family back here when we move, but when we come back we'll just want to visit and eat locally if we go out at all.

As far as the cheese goes, the flavor was very light but I think it was Parm. Even if I don't duplicate the recipe exactly I'm sure we'd like whatever I created.

My post was referring to two different pans of lasagna. My red sauce lasagna is just red sauce. The seafood lasagna had a creamy white sauce. Does that explain it?

Yes CarolPa. We put the béchamel sauce on lasagne, but not only on the top. After put the red sauce, you do putting the white sauce.

Vegetable Lasagna With A Thick Bechamel Sauce Recipe - Food.com - 251309
If it contains cheese or eggs its not béchamel sauce.

Béchamel sauce is white sauce, made from butter and flour and milk. Seasoned with salt and pepper and often nutmeg.

If you add cheese, it's called Mornay Sauce. If you add eggs it's something else.

I think I understand your process with the 2 different types of lasagne. I was noting that the recipe I saw in the cookbook was a complete red sauce lasagne, and the bechamel was just an added layer on top. Others have said that they combine the red sauce and the bechemel, or they use a layer of red sauce and then a layer of bechemel as they assemble the lasagne. I guess there are many ways to do it depending on what one prefers.

I have made bechamel for other recipes, just the flour, butter, milk but never saw it with cheese added unless I was making mac and cheese.

And Addie, I make it with skim milk because that's what I buy day to day. Sometimes I might buy a small bottle of whole milk for a certain recipe.

Bechamel is one of the five mother sauces of traditional French cooking. It's fat, flour and milk. If you add cheese, the bechamel becomes a mornay sauce. So, bechamel = white sauce and mornay = cheese sauce.

The way my former half-italian boyfriend told me to do the Lasagna is red sauce with ground beef (a bolognese-kind), and then alternately bechamel, red, bechamel... and always end with the bechamel...

Hi Cara. I'm completely Italian (so sorry for my bad English). That isn't a correct order. Onto the pasta, let's put the red sauce (bolognese) and after the bechamel sauce. Then pasta, red sauce and bechamel sauce and so on.

Where it's going, it's all going to be mixed together anyway, so I don't think it really matters what order you put it on.
