ISO lasagne recipe (with bechamel)

using a bechamel type sauce for the middle layers. I made a nice big pot of sauce yesterday, and now I'm going to make some lasagne for company. Instead of the regular ricotta/mozzarella filling, I remember seeing a recipe once using a bechamel sauce. Anyone got one?

exactly, I never had ricotta/mozarella filling, but to me that sounds good..;o)

but back to your question:
many possibilities... I usually have a two-sauce-lasagne.
one layer with a kind of bolognese, that means with grounded beef and the next layer with bechamel and peas...
you can use some fried bacon with the bechamel, too, maybe instead of the bolognese, or add other veggies to the bechamel, just as you like

I usually use Orion's sauce (the Greek chef who documented this concoction over 400 years before the French cook Bechamel hijacked it and named it after himself) as a topping for moussaka.

But, Giada De Laurentiis has a recipe using it - Classic Italian Lasagna
