Overnight Ham, Cheese and Egg Lasagna
Not only is this overnight lasagna packed full of cubed ham, shredded Swiss or Havarti cheese, chopped hard-boiled eggs, sun-dried tomato pesto, sun-dried tomato Alfredo sauce….it’s topped with Italian Parmesan bread crumbs and melted butter. That’s a whole lotta flavor in one pan of lasagna!
An egg lasagna, really? This wonderful make ahead lasagna is made with cooked ham, hard-boiled eggs, sun-dried tomato pesto and sun-dried tomato Alfredo sauce. A bit different sounding I know, but delicious just the same, as all lasagna recipes are. I was a bit skeptical before trying this dish but with one bite I knew I was hooked.
Great to Make with Easter Eggs
It turned out absolutely delicious and I’m not a huge fan of hard-boiled eggs! Overnight Ham, Cheese and Egg Lasagna would also make a delicious lunch or dinner. Another plus, you can use up all of those hard-boiled eggs you have left-over at Easter time. I can’t think of a better recipe to make than this one. Like most lasagna dishes, this lasagna was even better the next day.
