Reduce heat and simmer 10 mins 4. Layer half of pasta in prepared pan. Top with meat sauce mixture, then top with remaining sauce. 5. To make top- melt butter in medium saucepan, stir in flour. Cook while whisking for 1-2 minutes. Whisk in milk, slowly, stirring constantly. Cook at least 6 minutes while continueing to whisk. Place beaten egg in small bowl, stir in a ladlefull of creamy sauce into egg, whisk well, and then pour egg mixture into creamy sauce and whisk well. Cook while whisking 2 more minutes. Stir in half of parmesean cheese to melt. STir till melted. 6. pour sauce over pasta and meat. Sprinkle remaining cheese on top. Bake 30-40 mins or until hot throut and golden on top. Serves 6. I confess. We like this more saucey, quite a bit more saucey. I double the meat sauce recipe, and hold maybe half of the sauce aside to top finished product with at table side. I use ground chuck. (I do not like lamb) I would think you could also use half lamb, half beef. I use extra tomato sauce, and extra cinnamin ( double at least) and I do not measure my onion or garlic, I use lots of both. I also on occasion double the creamy bechamel sauce - to have a nice very thick layer. I add some nutmeg to the bechemal cream sauce, too. It adds a little something nice, in my opinion. This reheats very nicely. I serve it with garlic bread, and a nice tossed salad or greek salad. Some fresh torn lettuce, some chopped red onion, chopped green pepper and red pepper, sliced cucumbers, crumbled feta cheese, tomatos, pepperocini, kalamata olives, and marinated artichoke hearts. with bottled greek dressing and fresh squeezed lemon.
