I don't add eggs to the cheese. I think there's enough cholesterol in the dish without adding the eggs!

I always add an egg or two because that's what my recipe calls for. I use the one on the noodle box, with a few variations. I figure the people who make the lasagna noodles know the best way to prepare the dish.

I always add egg to lasagna as well as ravioly/torteliny/pirogy, whatever they are called, my mom did it, my grandma did it, so do I. Is it right or wrong, I have no idea, I just do it.

I never used eggs 'cause I didn't know better....

and until I saw, recently, on the Cooking Channel where The Barefoot Contessa used eggs in hers. But, I never used ricotta because we didn't have any the first time I made it and subed cottage cheese instead. Yeah, I've got a lot to learn, but hey, it was a Betty Crocker recipe and everyone liked it! It's really fun to see different variations and I certainly am ready to try several.

I had never even heard of putting eggs in lasagna. I hate ricotta in my lasagna and love it with cottage cheese. I'm curious now about whether eggs would make any difference in my recipe, but since I love it the way I have always done it (and my mom before me), I think I'll save my eggs for something else.

I agree. I dont see a reason to add eggs to the mixture and I too prefer it with cottage cheese.

I make veggie lasagnas though because I dont eat red meat. I tend to add spinach to my lasagnas as well and boy, is it yummy! (and healthy too... lots of iron! )

I use eggs too - I use a mixture of cottage cheese, shredded mozzarella, and ricotta (and of course all the correct herbs/spices) - I started out this way using the recipe off the manicotti shell box and then just transferred the same recipe to my lasagna - can't imagine doing it any other way.
