How long can I refrigerate an uncooked ricotta lasagna?

I want to mix the eggs into the ricotta cheese, make the lasagna, and refrigerate for Christmas Eve. I don't want to freeze it. Can I keep the uncooked ricotta and eggs safely in the refrigerator for those 48 hours?

Yes. It will be fine for 48 hours.

I would bake it, cool to room temp., plastic wrap it (tight), and re-heat it in the oven on the day.
(That's what we do at the restaurant).

Curious; why eggs? It's not really necessary in a lasagna. If it's to make sure it sets and doesn't fall apart, as long as you let it rest for about half an hour before cutting, if should set just fine. (just curious, not judging)
