This week we’ll dive into Lasagna. Possibly one of the oldest types of pasta. This popular Italian dish is made of stacked layers of thin flat pasta alternating with fillings such as ragù (ground meats and tomato sauce), vegetables and cheese. The dish is typically topped with grated mozzarella cheese and then baked in the oven.
As with most other types of pasta, the Italian word is a plural form: lasagne meaning more than one sheet of lasagna, though in many other languages (and in the south of Italy) a derivative of the singular word lasagna is used. Let’s get to it and cook up some delicious lasagne/a of your own.
