About Lasagne Edit
Wikipedia Article About Lasagne on Wikipedia
Lasagne, also lasagna, is both a form of pasta in sheets (often rippled in North America, though seldom so in Italy) and also a dish, sometimes named Lasagne al forno (meaning "Lasagne in the oven") made with alternate layers of pasta, cheese, and ragù (a meat sauce). While it is traditionally believed to have originated in Italy, then evidence has come to light suggesting that a very similar meal known as "loseyns" (pronounced 'lasan') was eaten in the court of King Richard II in the 14th Century. The recipe was also featured in the first cookbook ever written in England. However, the claim is just far from universally accepted, the Italian Embassy in London particularly speaking out against it for Italy.
This flat, rectangular pasta resembles the small, corrugated sheet. It is boiled, used in layers with fillings of many kinds in between. This is unique and can be baked.
