Serves: 12

Ingredients

  • ½ cup butter
  • ⅓ cup gluten-free all-purpose flour
  • ½ tsp. salt
  • ¼ tsp. ground black pepper
  • 3 cups whole milk
  • 1 tsp. lemon juice
  • ¼ cup chopped fresh parsley
  • 9 gluten-free lasagna noodles, cooked and drained
  • 1½ cups chopped ham
  • 16 oz. frozen white asparagus, defrosted, drained, and roughly chopped
  • 2 carrots, roughly chopped
  • 2 cups shredded white Cheddar cheese
  • 1 cup shredded Gruyère cheese

Directions

  • Preheat oven to 350°F. In a large saucepan, melt the butter over medium heat. Whisk in the flour, salt, and pepper. Add the milk and bring to a boil, stirring constantly. Cook and stir until thick, 3–4 minutes. Remove from the heat and stir in the lemon juice and parsley.
  • In a greased 9" × 13" baking pan, layer the following: ¼ cup of the prepared white sauce, 3 lasagna noodles, half the ham, half the asparagus, ⅓ cup Gruyère, and ¾ cup Cheddar. Repeat, starting again with ¼ cup white sauce. Top with the remaining noodles, white sauce, and cheeses.
  • Bake for 40–45 minutes or until bubbly around the edges and the cheese is lightly browned. Let it set for 15 minutes before cutting.
