  • To prepare Béchamel sauce:
    • Bring milk to a boil while in a separate pot melt butter with the olive oil, add flour and cook for 3 minutes over medium heat.
    • Stir in boiling milk little by little whisking continuously, bring to boil and cook for 3 minutes
    • Season with salt, pepper and nutmeg. Set aside for 30 minutes.
  • Meanwhile, pre-heat oven to 400° F.
  • Bring a large pot of water to boil, blanch lasagne sheets for 3 minutes, drain and set aside on kitchen towels.
  • In a hot skillet add olive oil and sauté onion, celery and sweet potatoes over high heat for 3 minutes, stir in zucchini, yellow squash and keep cooking for 3 more minutes. 
  • Stir in tomatoes, season with salt and pepper and sauté additional 3 minutes. Reserve 1 cup of the mixture on the side for garnishing.
  • In a 13” x 9” greased baking dish start building lasagne by adding enough béchamel to thinly cover the bottom of the dish, and then add 3 sheets of lasagne.  Next spread a thin layer of bechamel, add 1/3 vegetable mixture and ¼ cup of cheese. 
  • Repeat 4 more times, but last layer should be left without vegetables. 
  • Bake at 400° F covered with aluminum foil for 40 minutes, uncover and let brown over the top for additional 5-8 minutes. 
  • Let rest 20 minutes before serving with remaining vegetables over the top, a light sprinkle of cheese and a touch of Italian parsley. Enjoy with family and friends!
