What is Lasagna?

It’s one of the ultimate one-pot meals — whether you’re cooking for a potluck or just the family dinner, it’s hard to go wrong with lasagna. Layers of vegetables, sauce, cheese, and sometimes meat, sandwiched between sheets of pasta, make for a dish that’s just as fun to eat as it is to make. Diet food this is not.

Lasagna Shopping Tips

Italian food is about simplicity and letting the ingredients shine. So make sure you get ingredients that are great quality and flavor. Farmers markets and specialty stores will have great produce and products. Just be sure to have some great olive oil.

Lasagna Cooking How-Tos

Unlike other highly regarded cuisines, Italian cooking is usually simple to make with many dishes having only 4 to 8 ingredients. Italian cooks rely chiefly on the quality of the ingredients rather than on elaborate preparation.

Wine Pairing

Cabernet sauvignon, cabernet franc, merlot, malbec, mourvèdre, Rhône blends, zinfandel, petite sirah, nero d'avola, primitivo, sangiovese, or carménère with meat- or tomato-based sauces; grenache or chardonnay with cheese lasagna without tomato sauce.
