Does anyone else use hardboiled eggs in their Lasagna recipe?

The recipe I use is from our old Italian neighbors from Ohio. I don't remember which part of Italy they were from but I have never seen another recipe that uses it. Just curious.

  • No, I do use a couple of raw eggs in the cheese mixture (since what I use is low fat, and doesn't bind well on its own)

  • I dont, but on occasion I will use slices of egg plant for 2 layer's of noodles. It cuts the calories and fat and you cant taste the difference.

  • I saw a recipe just the other day for Baked Ziti and it called for hard boiled eggs. I thought to myself that was the craziest thing I've ever heard of. But now I'm really wondering.
