I did the lasagna last night. I subbed a couple of other cheeses for the ricotta because I have too much cheese in the house. I went with just the Bechamel sauce only, no tomato, just to see what it would be like. It came out okay but was nothing that would win a recipe contest. There are a couple leftover meals, so I may try something different on them, maybe add in some tomato and more it more like a true lasagna.

Otter, I hope you didn't think I meant use the bechemel instead of the tomato sauce? I only meant use it to sub out for the ricotta layer - eek, I'm sorry! I do pasta, tomato sauce, bechemel, cheese, in layers.

No, I understood. I just thought that since I'm subbing the ricotta that I would also try it with just the Bechamel since I was messin' with the classic recipe anyway. I wanted something more creamy than tomatoey, and I got it, but ricotta and tomato sauce is definitely the way to go.

that's the only way you find out if you like something or not, try it! I wish I could say I had too much cheese in the house. :? I'd be in heaven

How poetic and true!

I'm going to try the Bechamel, in lieu of ricotta next time myself. Maybe even tonight, if I have time to do the noodles today...

i just saw giada de laurentis do a lasagna, no boil, with alternating layers of herbed bechamel and sweet potato (or squash maybe) puree, and grated parmesan. it looked pretty good...

I had lots of cheese (the provolone that was called for, plus I subbed some gruyere, muenster and parmesan for the ricotta). It wasn't horrible, it just wasn't teriffic.
