  • 2 eggs, lightly beaten

  1. If using regular lasagna noodles, cook as directed on package.
  2. Combine cheese& eggs; mix together well.

  6. At this point, if you care to, you can mix the remainer of the marinara sauce with the cooked ground beef.

  14. Spread jar of Alfredo Sauce over last layer of noodles.
  15. Cover and cook at 350 degrees for 40 minutes.
  16. Uncover and cook 15 minutes more.
  17. Can sprinkle more grated Parmesan on top for the last 15 minutes if desired.
