National Lasagna Day

I’m sure Garfield the cat is in heaven, blissfully and lazily consuming pans of lasagna, because today is  National Lasagna Day.

Lasagna is a popular Italian dish comprised of layers of flat pasta, tomato sauce and cheese. Variations can be made by adding meat, vegetables or even tofu.

‘Lasagna’ is also referred to as ‘lasagne,’ the plural form of the word in Italian. Lasagne is derived from the Greek word ‘laganon,’ a wide, flat sheet of pasta cut into strips. It may also be derived from the Greek word ‘lasanum,’ which was the pot used to cook the dish.

Grab a fork and celebrate today by making a pan of homemade lasagna or heading to your favorite Italian restaturant. Buon appetito!
