  • Add the grated parmesan cheese and continue to whisk.
  • Remove from heat and add the 2 egg yolks, salt, pepper and ground nutmeg and whisk.

  • Spread the remaining meat and sauce over the lasagna.
  • Top with the béchamel sauce and spread it nicely and evenly.
  • Bake for 40 minutes, until golden.
