6 tablespoons olive oil
1 lg. onion, chopped
1-1/2 pounds ground lamb
6 ripe tomatoes, seeded, chopped
8 ounces tomato puree
3 cloves garlic, minced
1 teaspoon dried oregano
1/4 teaspoon cinnamon

1/2 cup breadcrumbs
1 egg, beaten




Sauce:
4 cups milk
2 tablespoons butter
6 eggs
1/2 cup flour
1/2 teaspoon salt
4 ounces freshly grated kefalotiri cheese


Instructions:

Cook the pasta according to package directions. Drain and set aside.

Meanwhile, in a large stew pot, heat the olive oil. Saute the onions for 5 minutes, then add the lamb. Cook until no pink show, crumbling it up with a spoon as it cooks. Add the tomatoes, tomato puree, garlic, oregano, and cinnamon. Stir well and bring to a boil. Cover, reduce heat, and simmer for 15 minutes. Remove from heat. Season with salt and pepper. Add 1/4 cup of bread crumbs and quickly stir in the beaten egg.

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Grease a deep 9 x 13-inch baking dish. Sprinkle the bottom of the dish with the remaining 1/4 cup of bread crumbs, then half of the pasta. Cover it with the meat, then half of the sauce. Sprinkle with half the cheese. Add another layer of pasta, the remaining cream sauce, and the remaining cheese. Bake for 45 minutes.
