Meanwhile, in the top of a double boiler, over hot, but not boiling
water, combine egg yolks and Parmesan cheese thoroughly. Add butter to
the yolk mixture, 1 tablespoon at a time, stirring constantly and
allowing each piece of butter to melt before the next addition. Add
lemon juice and continue to cook until sauce is slightly thickened.
Pour sauce over hot noodles and toss lightly, add ham mixture and

cheese and serve immediately. Serves 4.

spread half of sour cream mixture on rice, top with half of cheeses and
sprinkle with salt and pepper. Repeat layers a second time. Cover
casserole and bake for 25 minutes at 375°. Remove cover and bake an
additional 10 minutes, or until bubbly. Serves 6-8.
Note: this may be easily halved or doubled and may be assembled early in the day, refrigerated and baked later. Allow more baking time if casserole is chilled.
