<firstname.lastname@example.org> From the CookBook USA CD. Melt butter in heavy
medium saucepan over medium low heat. Add onion and garlic and saute
onion until translucent, about 8 minutes. Add flour and cook 2
minutes, stirring occasionally. Gradually whisk in milk. Simmer until
mixture thickens, stirring constantly, about 2 minutes. Mix in lemon
peel and nutmeg. Remove from heat. Season with salt and pepper. (Can
be prepared 1 day ahead. Cover white sauce and refrigerate.) Grease 8"
square baking pan. Steam asparagus over boiling salted water until
just crisp tender, about 6 minutes. Refresh under cold water; drain.
Cut asparagus into 1" pieces. Combine asparagus and ricotta in small
bowl. Cook lasagne noodles in large pot of rapidly boiling salted
water until just tender but still firm to bite, stirring occasionally.
Drain. Rinse noodles with cold water and drain well. Spread 1/2 of
white sauce in bottom of pan. Top with single layer of lasagne
noodles, trimming to fit. Cover with 1/2 cup white sauce. Top with 1/2
of asparagus mixture. Top with half each of Swiss cheese and bacon.
Top with another layer of noodles. Cover with remaining white sauce.
Top with remaining asparagus mixture, Swiss cheese and bacon. Cover

Parmesan cheese. (Can be prepared 1 day ahead. Cover and refrigerate.
