Directions:
Bechamel Sauce:
Melt butter in sauce pan, then stir in flour. Pour in milk and cream and beat with a whisk, stirring until smooth and sauce begins to thicken. Simmer 2-3 minutes while stirring. Remove from heat and season with nutmeg and salt. Set aside.

Meat sauce:
In a large saucepan, saute onion, carrots and celery in butter and olive oil over low heat until onions are translucent. Add the ground beef and pork, turn up the heat to med and then add wine, using a wooden spoon to make holes in the meat mixture so the liquid will absorb without stewing the meat. Lower heat, add 1 C of warmed milk. Continue stirring until the milk has been absorbed, then add the warmed broth and remaining milk. Simmer and stire until meat mixture is moist. Add the chopped tomatoes, cover and simmer gently for 1 hour. Sir often.

To build lasagna:
Ladle 2 C of meat sauce into 15 x 10 baking dish, skimming it from the top where there is more fat. Place a layer of noodles over the sauce and ladle more sauce over the noodles. Drizzle with 1/4 of the bechamel sauce and sprinkle with parmsean cheese. Repeat the process to add 3 more layers. Cover pan with foil and bake at 350 for 35-40 minutes until bubbly. Remove foil and bake uncovered for another 10 minutes.

Let set for 10 minutes, cut into squares and serve. Place any extra sauce and cheese on table for dressing.
