National Lasagna Day - July 29
Tuesday, July 29th
12:00 AM
Whole Foods Market San Mateo,

Today's foodie forecast: layers and layers of flavor - July 29 is National Lasagna Day.

What do you do with flat, chewy pasta and curly edges? Slap some cheese, tomato sauce and your choice of meat or veggies in between, throw it in the oven and scarf down this tremendously tiered dish.

Several origin stories surround lasagna, and a couple point to Ancient Greece as the birthplace of this cheesy comfort food - includng one that the name stems from the type of serving dish, lasonon, used to bake lasagna. Now characteristic of central Italy, lasagna has many flavorful variations, depending on the region.

Whether you're a meat lover or vegetarian, ragù purist or Béchamel enthusiast, there's a type of lasagna for everyone. You can even wrap it like a roll-up if you like your lasagna on the go.

And if you love lasagna as much as Weird Al Yankovic, la-la-la-la-la-lasagna the night away.

Today's foodie forecast: layers and layers of flavor - July 29 is National Lasagna Day.
