Layer the above in a buttered dish. Sprinkle salt and fresh ground black pepper between the layers.

Sauce Preparation:

Melt butter, add flour to make a loose paste. Don't let it brown. Add milk and mix together with a whisk until it gets thick. Add some salt and pepper. Add cheese. Pour sauce between the layers.

You can add more cheese between the layers too. Top with cheese and a thin layer of plain bread crumbs. Bake in a 400° F oven for 1 1/2 hours.
