Hard boil the eggs while cooking the lasagna noodles and browning the beef.
While the ingredients are cooking, grate the entire brick of cheese.
Once beef is fully cooked, strain the meat to remove all excess water.
Replace the beef into the pan and on low heat add the entire can of tomato sauce.
Stir the meat until it is fully saturated.
Once the eggs are fully cooked drain the water and refill with cold water.
When eggs are cooled peel and chop them very fine.
Cover all the sides and the floor of the lasagna pan with a little bit of the meat and sauce mixture to prevent the noodles from sticking.
Place one layer of noodles to cover the floor of the pan followed by half of the meat and sauce mixture. Level out the meat and sauce mixture wover the first layer of noodles.
Spread half of the minced eggs evenly on top of the meat and sauce mixture.
Place a little less than half of the grated cheese evenly over the sprinkled eggs.
Place another layer of noodles followed by the remaining meat and sauce mixture.
Sprinkle the remaining minced eggs over the meat and sauce.
Add 2/3 of the remaining greated cheese followed by the last layer of noodles.
Spread the remaining grated cheese evenly over the last layer of noodles and cover the entire pan with foil.
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees fahrenheit.
Place lasagna pan into the oven for twenty minutes.
After twenty minutes remove the foil from the lasagna pan and return the pan to the oven.
Increase the temperature to 425 degrees fahrenheit for another twenty minutes.
Remove the lasagna from the oven and let cool for 15
Minutes before cutting the lasagna into piece and serving.
Do not overcook the meat before straining and adding the tomato sauce because the meat will bake for another 40 minutes in the oven.
When layering the lasagna it's important to make sure every layer is even and level to ensure that every bite will contain all the ingredients.
