Simmer, uncovered, for 20 minutes. In a saucepan, melt butter. Stir in flour, salt and nutmeg until smooth. Gradually add milk. Bring to a boil; cook and stir for 2 minutes or until thickened.
  3. Spread 1 cup pepper sauce in a 13-in. x 9-in. baking dish coated with cooking spray. Top with three noodles, 1-1/2 cups pepper sauce, 1 cup white sauce and 1/3 cup Parmesan cheese. Repeat layers. Top with remaining noodles, white sauce and pepper sauce. Bake, uncovered, at 350° for 30-35 minutes or until bubbly. Sprinkle with remaining cheese. Let stand for 15 minutes before cutting. Yield: 9 pieces.

This is wonderful, everyone loved it.

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Feb. 13, 2012

I have made this recipe three times, each time it was delicious. I used a little low fat mozzarella on the top. I also used no cook lasagne noodles instead of regular ones and cooked it for 30 min with foil on top and then 15 min. with foil off. It is worth the extra time it takes to roast the red peppers and peel them.

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Apr. 5, 2009

This is very good. It's a little time consuming but the end result is worth it. I like to make it on a Sunday afternoon and enjoy the leftovers through out the week when I don't have much time to cook.
