Lasagne My Way Recipe Video

When I first started making this dish I used the traditional Italian-American recipe with ricotta and mozzarella cheeses, but I have since changed to this recipe which uses a cream sauce flavored with Parmegiano-Reggiano cheese. It is lighter and, to my taste, more delicate and delicious.
