Directions

1. Preheat oven to 350 degree F. Cook noodles according to package directions; drain and rinse. In large skillet cook meat, onion, and garlic until meat is brown. Drain off fat. Stir in tomato sauce, wine, oregano, and cinnamon. Heat to boiling; reduce heat. Simmer, uncovered, 10 minutes. Gradually stir meat mixture into 1 beaten egg; set aside.

2. In medium saucepan melt butter; stir in flour and 1/4 teaspoon pepper. Add milk. Cook and stir until thickened and bubbly; cook and stir 1 minute more. Stir in 1/4 cup Parmesan; set aside. Combine 2 eggs and remaining Parmesan. To assemble, spread 2 tablespoons cheese sauce in a 13x9x2-inch baking dish or 3-quart rectangular casserole. Top with 3 noodles, one-third each of the meat sauce, remaining cheese sauce, and olives. Drizzle with one-third of egg-Parmesan mixture; sprinkle with one-third each of cheeses. Repeat layers twice. Bake, uncovered, 35 to 40 minutes or until hot. Let stand 10 minutes. Makes 12 servings.
