White Lasagna

By Ange's Table

Good morning to you.  How are you today?  Are you getting ready for the upcoming holidays?

It has been a bit hectic around here in the Table household.  We had to do some unexpected work in the house, and get a new fridge and dishwasher.  

Getting new appliances is always a great thing, shiny and new.  But I would have liked it better if it wasn’t unplanned.  I truly believe God was telling me to slow down, take a breath and look around.

Lately I have been having some personal struggles, and feel like the last few weeks have been God’s way of telling me to appreciate what I have.  I no longer have the same job as I did for the last 18 years, but I have a job.  We may want to buy a new house in the country with lots of land, but now is not that time.

Sometimes we lose focus of the important things.  I know the time will come when Mr. Table and I find the perfect home to spend the rest of our lives in.  When the timing is right, things will happen as they should.

With all of the craziness, I have not been in the kitchen all that much.  Thankfully, we were able to have a fantastic Thanksgiving dinner.  It was just the 3 of us, but we still had an amazing meal.  Thanksgiving  was a bit of a cheat day for me. I had lasagna!

Normally I do not eat young or soft cheeses.  My body does not like them🙄 But every once in a while, I treat myself.  And honestly, I was totally fine after eating.  It is amazing how we can heal ourselves by the foods we eat, or don’t eat.

White Lasagna

  • 1 box gluten free lasagna noodles, prepared according to package direction
  • 1/2 small lemon, juiced
  • 1 egg
  • 1 12 oz container whole milk ricotta
  • 1 tsp seasoned salt mix
  • sauteed spinach, optional
  • 1/4-1/2 cup parmigiano reggiano cheese, freshly grated
  • 8 oz mozzarella cheese,  freshly grated
  • 3 cups bechamel sauce

Bechamel Sauce:

  • 3 cups oat milk
  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • 1/4 cup oat flour
  • 1 tsp seasoned salt mix
  • 1/4 tsp nutmeg

In a large pot, add oil and flour.  Cook over medium heat 5-7 minutes until the flour has a nutty aroma. 

Add in milk, slowly, mixing with a whisk to prevent any lumps. 

Once all the milk has been added, cook over medium low heat for 15-20 minutes, until it thickens enough to coat the back of a spoon.  Season with salt mix and nutmeg.

Set aside to cool.

To assemble the lasagna:

Preheat the oven to 375’F.

In a medium bowl, combine the ricotta, egg, half the parmigiano, lemon juice, salt mix and spinach if using.  Mix well, set aside.

Add a ladle full of bechamel to the bottom of your baking dish.  Put one layer of prepared lasagna noodles, more bechamel sauce, some of the mozzarella cheese and 1/3 of the ricotta mixture.  Sprinkle with some parmigiano cheese, and repeat until you have a layer of lasagna noodles on top.  Add the last bit of bechamel, mozzarella and parmigiano on top.  

Bake in the oven covered 30 minutes, then uncovered 10-15 minutes more to brown the top.

Let the lasagna rest loosely covered for 30 minutes before slicing.


Making lasagna is a time consuming process, but so worth it when you take that first bite.  I would love to hear how you make your lasagna.
