Lasagna with White Sauce – Lasagna with a twist, a white mozzarella cheese sauce.

Uncooked lasagna noodles are layered with a meaty tomato sauce flavored with Italian seasoning, and a white sauce that contains mozzarella cheese. More cheese goes over the top, before the dish is covered and baked. The noodles cook as the lasagna bakes.
