The proportions for this recipe are only approximate. You can vary them according to taste, the size of your dish, whatever you have to hand, etc.
For the cheese topping, Comté, Gruyère, Parmesan or Cheddar work very well. I prefer to use Parmesan for the inside layers and Comté on the top, as it browns nicely. To save time, you can mix the cheese into the béchamel sauce when you are making it, keeping back a little to scatter over the top. Lasagne is a dish that tastes even better when it is reheated, so make plenty in a big dish for later use. It freezes well. Nutritional information
