Steps

1
Done

In a large pot over medium heat, add in ground beef. Use a spoon to break up the meat into small pieces. Add in onion and garlic and cook until meat is well browned, stirring constantly.

2
Done

Stir in sugar, fresh basil, fennel, oregano, 1/2 teaspoon salt, pepper, and 1/4 cup chopped parsley. Pour in crushed tomatoes, tomato paste, tomato sauce, and wine. Stir well and bring to a simmer. Reduce heat to low and simmer 1.5 hours, stirring occasionally.

3
Done

Place lasagna noodles into the bottom of a pan. Pour hot tap water directly over the noodles. Let them soak for 30 minutes, then drain and discard water.

4
Done

Melt the butter in a heavy-bottomed saucepan. Add the flour to the melted butter and stir to form a roux. Cook for about two minutes. Slowly whisk in the milk, stirring well to get rid of any flour lumps.

5
Done

Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Lightly grease a deep 9x13 pan.

To assemble, spread about 1 cup of meat sauce in the bottom of the prepared pan. Place 3 noodles on top. Spread meat sauce. Drizzle roughly 1/3 of the bechamel sauce evenly atop the meat sauce. Spread the shredded mozzarella on top of the bechamel sauce layer. Sprinkle the grated Parmesan on top of the mozzarella.

Lay another layer of noodles, add the sauce, bechamel and cheese just as you did with the last layer.

6
Done

Add final layer of noodles, going horizontally this time and top with remaining sauce and cheese.

7
Done

Cover tightly with foil and bake for 35 minutes. Remove foil and continue to bake until cheese is melted and the lasagna is hot all the way through, about 15 minutes.
