If you prefer, you can prepare delicious lasagna without bechamel. In this case you can replace the béchamel with a soft cheese such as provola or scamorza. We recommend using 300 g of this type of cheese to be cut into slices and added to the lasagna in the various layers. For the rest you can follow the previous procedure.


The lasagna prepared in this way can be stored in the refrigerator covered with cling film for 1-2 days . You can also freeze them after cooking so as to have them available for a few weeks.
