  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
  2. Heat the olive oil in a wok over medium heat, add the onion and fry until soft and tender. Stir in the lamb and mushrooms; cook until the meat has browned, stirring occasionally to break up the meat. Pour in the marinara sauce and bring to a simmer. Stir in the cooked pasta, then pour into an ovenproof baking dish.
  3. Melt the butter in a small saucepan over low heat. Pour in the flour and mix well. Pour in the milk, increase the heat to medium, and cook until thickened. Stir 1/4 cup of the thickened milk into the egg, about a tablespoon at a time to temper the egg, then pour the egg into the remaining sauce and whisk together. Spread this white sauce over the pasta and sprinkle with cheese.
  4. Bake in preheated oven until browned and crispy, about 30 minutes.

This was ok, but I think it would work better with ground beef. I am not able to get hold of ground lamb very often, and thought this was a bit of a waste. Thanks anyway.

I did not know what marinara sauce was, and could not find any, so i substituted with mushroom and Mascarpone cheese sauce and it tasted delicious my kids loved it even the little one(1year)high...

This was good, but a little bland. We added some shredded parmesan on top to give it an extra little something. My husband and daughter say they would eat it again.

This is a favorite recipe of our family! Even my children love it. I usually don't add mushrooms, because I rarely have them on hand and it still turns out perfect :)

This was okay, but I really felt that it needed some more spice - some more flavoring.

Love it
