The Best thing Lasagne is one of the crowning glories of the Italian-American table: a many-layered baked dish of pasta, sauce, meat, and molten cheese that comes together as a single, sumptuous whole. It’s also one of Italy’s oldest recipes: its name stems from the Greek lagoon, the world’s earliest form of pasta; in fact, those ancient sheets of dough went on to inspire the Greek version of lasagne, pastitsio. It’s cheesy, it’s saucy, it’s full of noodles, and it’s basically one of my all-time favorite foods ever because baked pasta over unbaked pasta any day. I’ve been having Lasagne thoughts for a while now.
Lasagne is a great dish to make because it doesn’t really suffer if it has an overnight chill in the fridge. And I was always surprised because this is one of the simplest, and mindless, meals anyone can make. And it fills our fridge with leftovers! This is hands down the best Lasagne my tongue has ever had the pleasure to come across. The sauce is made with San Marzano plum tomatoes, Italian sausage and just the right amount of herbs
The texture of Lasagne
And now I’m trying to find the words to describe it to you. A simmered red sauce compliments the silkiness of the white sauce and this entire classic Italian Lasagne is filled with cheese. Lots of cheese. It’s my favorite. That’s all. There are reasons why it’s my favorite. It’s creamy and moist, but not so moist that it falls apart. It’s cheesy, but not too cheesy.
The earliest Lasagne recipes known are dated from the thirteenth century. At that time, tomatoes were not known to Europeans. This means that they couldn’t have used them in the recipes. However, depending on the recipe, different cheeses are used.
Lasagne originated in Italy, in the region of Emilia-Romagna, July 29th is celebrated as National Lasagne Day.
