2. Meanwhile, prepare lasagna noodles as label directs; drain. In medium-sized bowl, mix mozzarella cheese, ricotta cheese, eggs, and parsley; set aside.
3. Prepare white sauce: In 2-quart saucepan over medium heat, melt butter or margarine; stir in flour, nutmeg, and 1/4 teaspoon salt until blended; cook 1 minute. Gradually stir in milk; cook, stirring constantly, until sauce thickens and is smooth; remove from heat.
4. Preheat oven to 375°F. In 13" by 9" baking dish, evenly spoon about 3/4 cup meat sauce. Arrange half of noodles over sauce, overlapping to fit. Spoon half of cheese mixture over noodles; spread with half of white sauce; top with half of remaining meat sauce. Repeat layering with remaining half of noodles, cheese mixture, and sauces.
5. Bake lasagna 45 minutes or until heated through. Remove from oven; let stand 10 minutes for easier serving.
When heating the milk to make the sauce, you can infuse it with an onion covered with a bay leaf and studded with a clove. This will give your sauce a delicious flavor.
