The Best Cheese for Making Cheese Sauce

It is up to you which type of cheese you use in your lasagna cheese sauce recipe. Although Italian cheeses like ricotta, mozzarella, and parmesan usually feature in traditional Italian lasagna recipes, there is nothing to stop you from experimenting with others too. Some home cooks enjoy using Swiss cheese in their homemade cheese sauce recipes, and others like the tang which comes from using feta or blue cheese.

Bear in mind some cheeses are much stronger-tasting than others so if you are using blue cheese, a sharp cheddar or rich-tasting parmesan, you might wish to use more mozzarella or ricotta and less of the strong cheese, else the strong cheese might overwhelm the flavor of the lasagna and drown out the subtle flavors of the more delicate cheeses.

Experiment with Tasty Cheeses

You can use one or two kinds of cheese or use several. Do not worry about the cheese flavors clashing because you can combine pretty much any kind of cheese with any other cheese and never get a flavor clash. Cheeses are renowned for working in harmony together. Just like you can combine all kinds of fruit to make a fruit salad, you can combine almost all kinds of cheese to make a successful cheese sauce for lasagna.

For an exotic flavor, you might like to try other regional cheeses, perhaps some French cheese or Dutch cheese. Another option is to give your lasagna a spicy edge by adding some hot havarti or pepper jack to the mix. Any kind of cheese which bakes well will work in a lasagna recipe, so be brave, and throw in some of your all-time favorite cheese. It can only improve your homemade lasagna recipe.
