Lasagne

The Italian favorite of lasagne or lasagna that we all know and love originated in Italy in the city of Naples during the Middle Ages. One of the first references to modern-day lasagne can be found in a 14th-century English cookbook that highlighted a dish with layers of pasta without the tomatoes. Another reference was made to lasagne in an Italian cookbook in the 1880s which featured tomato sauce.

The preferred meat used in Lasagne is Beaf. The people who don’t eat beaf or who are vegeterians had started to find some alternative for the beaf, like Lamb meat or the roasted Eggplants, spinach and more cheese to match the classic one (still its hard to match the Lasagna with meat 😋).
