Spicy Béchamel Sauce

Even though I love continental cuisine, my husband - who likes very spicy food - is not very fond of it. So I've come up with this spicy version of bechamel sauce with some onions, and garlic & green chilly paste. He loves this sauce in au gratin bakes and lasagna. Increase the amount of garlic & green chilly paste if you'd like the sauce more spicy.
