Today's The Day we Celebrate Lasagna

Today's the day we make homemade lasagna and eat our traditional lasagna meal with our friends and family!

Happy National Lasagna Day everyone!
July 29th is always Lasagna Day

Today is the day! Did everyone go to the grocery store and get the fixings to make lasagna? I gave everyone a heads-up about it when we talked on Tuesday.  Well on this day it's traditional to make homemade lasagna and serve it to the family for supper.

I love my lasagna served with homemade garlic bread full of real melted butter and a nice big salad on the side with Italian dressing and blue cheese dressing mixed. What do you guys eat with it? But.... I don't want any coffee or hot tea served with it. lol! Nope, give me a tall glass of milk if I'm at home or a nice glass of wine with it if I'm at an Italian restaurant. Those 2 are my favorite drinks to drink with lasagna.

Lasagne are wide, flat pasta, and possibly one of the oldest types of pasta. "Lasagne", or the singular "lasagna", commonly refers to a dish made with several layers of lasagne sheets alternated with sauces and other ingredients, such as meats and cheese.

The traditional lasagne of Naples, is layered with local sausage, small fried meatballs, hard-boiled eggsricotta and mozzarella cheeses, and sauced with a Neapolitan ragù. Lasagne al forno, layered with a thicker ragù and Béchamel sauce and which corresponds to the most common version of the dish outside Italy, is traditionally associated with Emilia-Romagna. In other regions lasagne can be made with various combinations of ricotta or mozzarella cheese, tomato sauce, various meats (e.g., ground beef, pork or chicken), miscellaneous vegetables (e.g., spinach, zucchini, olives, mushrooms), and is typically flavored with wine, garlic, onion, and oregano. In all cases, the lasagne are oven-baked. (Thank you wikipedia for that regional information)

Now.... I have never in my life cooked lasagna like the people of Naples cook it. I can't seem to get my head around putting hard boiled eggs in it. ha ha! But I do love the Neapolitan ragu sauce with it. (onion, celery, carrot, meat, tomato sauce, red wine, basil, lard or olive oil) I could just eat the meat sauce and bechamel sauce all by itself with fresh baked bread.

Ok gang! I would love to see pictures of everyone's homemade lasagna. Put your link in comments. Happy Eating!
