Lasagna, a beloved Italian dish, has a rich history dating back to ancient Greece and Rome.

The word “lasagna”comes from the Greek “lasanon”, meaning chamber pot, which Romans later used to refer to cooking pots.

The earliest lasagna recipe, found in a 14th-century English cookbook, featured layers of pasta without tomatoes, which hadn’t reached Europe yet.

Lasagna as we know it began to take shape in Renaissance Italy, with layered pasta, béchamel sauce, cheese, and meat. After tomatoes arrived from the New World in the 16th century, tomato-based lasagna became popular in Naples by the late 19th century. This Neapolitan version included pasta, tomato sauce, mozzarella, and meat.

Today, lasagna is a global comfort food with countless variations, showcasing its enduring appeal and adaptability.
