Lasagna with White Sauce

 Lasagna with White Sauce
I'm an old-fashioned country cook and love preparing recipes like this one that uses staples I normally keep on hand. Unlike most lasagnas, this one doesn't call for precooking the noodles. It's so simple my children sometimes make it after school and have it ready when I get home from work. -Angie Price, Bradford, Tennessee
