Lasagna with summer squash and goat cheese

Beautiful lasagna with summer squash, mint and French goat cheese! It’s really good and so moist thanks to the béchamel sauce that covers the lasagna leaves :-) You need to cook a little bit the summer squash in the oven before the lasagna, and you will see that the mint goes very well with the goat cheese thanks to its particular perfume! Give it a try :-)
