Dig into this ancient delight on July 29th for National Lasagna Day. The dish has origins that stretch as far back as Ancient Greece.

The word lasagna itself comes from the Greek word laganon, which would become lasanum in Latin, meaning pot, which became the name of the food as well as the dish it was cooked in. 

The ancient recipes were much more simple than modern lasagnas, with only flattened sheets of dough and a simple sauce, mostly olive oil based. The tomato-based sauce that is most often used in modern lasagnas didn’t become popular until the 1880s, a time when the layering of lasagna also came into popularity.

It wasn’t until 1995 however that the no-boil lasagna noodles that are commonly used today reached American supermarkets. Today, there are many variations of lasagna from a classic robust red and meat sauce with parmesan and ricotta cheese, to chicken and cheddar, and even fully vegan versions.

No matter how you fill and dress your lasagna, be sure to throw this classic in the over or head out to your favorite Italian restaurant to enjoy a slice for National Lasagna Day on July 29th.
