The amazing italian Lasagna

An iconic food: The italian Lasagna

Lasagna is a wide, flat pasta noodle, usually baked in layers in the oven.

Traditionally lasagna wasn’t made with tomatoes; only ragù, béchamel sauce, and cheese, usually mozzarella or Parmigiano Reggiano or a combination of the two.

Even today, only a bit of tomato or tomato sauce is used in a traditional ragu, unlike most Italian-American dishes, which are basically swimming in tomato sauce.

This concentrates the flavor of the meat but sometimes is a little jarring for American palates.
