Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
  2. Prepare lasagna noodles according to package directions. Drain and set aside. Melt butter in a saucepan over medium heat. Add onion and cook until soft and translucent (8 to 10 minutes).
  3. Add garlic and cook for 1 minute. Add flour and cook for 2 minutes, stirring continuously. Slowly whisk in milk. Bring to a boil, while stirring constantly, then reduce to a simmer. Cook until slightly thickened, about 5 minutes.
  4. Remove sauce from heat and stir in 1/2 cup Parmesan, all the Gruyere, lemon zest, nutmeg, salt and pepper. Fold in Swiss chard and set aside.
  5. Cook sausage in a pan over medium-high heat until no longer pink (4 to 6 minutes). Drain fat, if necessary.
  6. Spread 1/2 cup sauce over the bottom of an 8- by 12-inch baking dish. Top with 3 noodles, half the sausage and 1 cup sauce. Repeat. Top with remaining noodles and sauce.
  7. Bake in the oven, covered with foil, for 45 minutes. Remove foil and sprinkle with remaining Parmesan cheese. Heat broiler and broil until cheese is browned and bubbling (2 to 3 minutes).
