To prepare for the spring white lasagna you must first make the white sauce: melt the butter in a saucepan over low heat. Remove the pot from the heat and add the butter to the flour, stirring with a whisk until it forms a roux (compound) smooth and homogeneous. Pour slowly the lukewarm milk, working with a whisk so that no lumps, and add salt. Cook over low heat stirring constantly: the béchamel sauce will thicken up and will be ready when will veil the spoon. Remove from heat and mix in a pinch of nutmeg, a little ground black pepper, adjust salt if necessary and add the grated cheese to your liking (consider that is a lasagna that turns the sweet, then pecorino cheese salt is used to compensate).
Clean the asparagus by removing the final part of the stalk, then peel them with a potato peeler. Set aside the tips and cut into chunks the rest of the stem. Finely chop the spring onion. Brown in a pan with a little olive oil half of spring onion, then add the peas and broad beans. Add salt and cook over high heat for 7-10 minutes, by adding a little water if necessary, so they stay crunchy. Set aside. Brown in pan with oil the rest of the onion and add the asparagus. Add salt and cook for 7-10 minutes, adding a little water if necessary in this case, because even the asparagus must remain crunchy because we will continue to bake.
Preheat the oven to 180 degrees. Sprinkle the bottom of a baking dish with a little bechamel. Cover with a layer of lasagne, then deploy some asparagus, peas and beans. Sprinkle with grated Parmesan cheese. Repeat the sequence of layers until all ingredients: three layers are sufficient. Decorate the top layer harmoniously with the vegetables and add some butter and some more’ pecorino and Parmesan grated. Pour in the corners of the pan a few tablespoons of vegetable broth. Cover with foil and bake for about 20 minutes, then remove the aluminum and gratinating five minutes or until the surface of the spring will not be lightly browned lasagne white. Bon appétit!
