Decadent French style lasagna #DimancheSoir

Need I say more? This is such a delicious classic and if you know me, I love all things French when it comes to cooking and baking for my family.

This meal is so simple.  Make or buy fresh lasagna noodles, get good quality ground beef and my secret weapon is the newly discovered Stefano Faita Tomato & Basil at Sobeys(not sponsored).   It is so fresh, no sugar added and it’s my new go-to whenever I need a good tomato sauce.


My kids loved this meal served with a good crusty Italian garlic bread and glass of whole milk to wash it down, the kids were full and happy.  So here is how we do lasagna at our home.  I mean, come on, I’m talking meat sauce and bechamel and a mix of mozzarella and Comte cheese.  It all comes together quickly so I hope you’ll enjoy.

French Lasagna
Write a review
  1. For the bechamel sauce ( I usually double up this is a single recipe for the bechamel)
  2. 2 tbsp of butter
  3. 2 tbsp of flour
  4. 1 1/2 cups of whole milk
  5. For the meat sauce
  6. 1 pound of ground beef
  7. Stefano Faita tomato sauce, I add as much as needed. I eye ball it. Sorry.
  8. 6 Sheets of lasagna noodles. I like to make fresh but when pressed I'll buy the premade fresh lasagna noodles.
  9. 1 1/2 cups of mozzarella and 1/2 cup of Comte shredded
  1. It's so simple. Just saute the ground beef( feel free to add onions and garlic) and add the tomato sauce. While that is cooking on low I'll start the bechamel.
  2. Melt the butter in a sauce pan and add flour, be sure to whisk. Do not allow flour mixture to brown. Gradually whisk in the milk. Keep whisking and add your salt and pepper and a dash of nutmeg. Season to your taste. Keep whisking. Cook and stir until it comes together and thickens about 4 minutes. Remove from heat and set aside once thick.
  3. I like to double up this recipe.
  4. I used the tomato sauce from the jar to spread on the bottom of the pan and placed lasagna noodles on top.
  5. Add the meat mixture, spread the bechamel on top and sprinkle cheese, layer again with noodles, meat sauce, bechamel and cheese and layer again if you have the room. Top with remaining sauce, bechamel and cheese.
  6. Bake uncovered for 25-30 minutes. Cover loosely with foil during the last 10 minutes. Let stand for 15 minutes before cutting and serving. Enjoy!
