For the first step of this white lasagna recipe, we are going to prepare the white sauce. Prepare a heavy sauce pan and add in the butter, melting it over medium low heat. Next, add in the chopped shallots and cook over medium heat. Stir the shallots and cook until they are soft and tender. Add in the flour after the shallots are soft and turn the heat to low, stirring the shallots until they are mixed well together with the flour. After about 5 minutes, add in the grated nutmeg while stirring. Whisk the shallot mixture slowly and add in the milk simultaneously. After adding the milk, do the same for the chicken stock. Continue whisking the stock until it boils, and cover the sauce pan to simmer the sauce. Remember to uncover the sauce and stir the stock every 5 minutes. When the stock turns thick, remove the sauce pan from heat. Crack in the eggs and stir well to cook the eggs. Finally, add in Marsala, salt, and 1/2 cup of Parmigiano-Reggiano cheese.Stir well and set sauce aside for later use.
