Directions:
Tomato Sauce: Chop large onion, garlic and fry slightly in the hot olive oil. Add the tomatoes, tomato paste, bay leaves, salt, pepper, water and stir until well mixed. Then toss in the ground beef, breaking it in little pieces with a fork or spoon. Cover sauce, cook over a low heat for 45 minutes, stir occasionally.
Cheese Sauce: Finely chop a small onion and cook in the melted butter or margarine for a minute or two. Mix in the flour until smooth and grated Parmesan cheese and a dash of salt. Gradually stir in the mil and continue cooking over a low heat, stirring constantly, until sauce is thick as heavy cream. Beat egg yolks slightly, mix in a little hot cheese mixture slowly (to prevent sauce from curdling), then mix all the cheese mixture and yolks together, cook over low heat for 10 minutes, remove from heat.

Cook Lasagna noodles as directed on package until tender, then drain. Pre-heat oven to 325, grease a large baking dish. On bottom of dish put a layer of noodles, pour over tomato sauce and add part of the cheese sauce. Continue layers until all ingredients are used. Finish top layer with a covering of the cheese sauce, bake 20 minutes.

I just found this recipe that Mom and Aunt Lucille used. I remember how we would get together for special occasions, like a birthday and they would make this. We all thought that this was one of their very best dishes.
