Lasagna Fritta (fried lasagna)

Here is a great dish I had at olive garden a month ago as an app. O.G. doesn't give out this recipe so here's my variation... very very good!!

Lasagna Fritta
Makes 14 servings

2/3 c milk
1 c Parmesan cheese
6 oz Feta cheese
¼ tsp white pepper
1 TBSP butter
7 lasagna noodles
1 oz marinara sauce
1 oz Alfredo sauce

Boil and stir together butter, white pepper, milk, Parmesan, and feta cheese.
Boil Lasagna noodles as directed.
When the noodles are finished, spread a thin layer of cheese & milk mix along noodle and fold into 2 inch pieces. Let set in the freezer for 1 hour, placing something heavy on top to keep it together.

When you take them out of the freezer, cut the pieces in half long-ways.

Before you fry them, mix 1/4 c milk and 1 egg together and get a bowl ready with Italian bread crumbs.

then dip each piece in the milk/egg then the bread crumbs. NOW you can fry them.
Fry at 350 degrees for 4 minutes

Spread Alfredo on the bottom of the serving plate, placing each piece in the sauce. Drizzle marinara sauce on top.
