Celebrate National Lasagna Day Today [VIDEO]
Who says there aren't special occasions during the "Frog Days Of Summer"? Today is National Lasagna Day, and if you love Italian food, celebrate a little history on lasagna, including an easy "Greg's Grill" recipe video.
According to punchbowl.com:
"This delicious Italian dish is usually made with layers of flat pasta sheets, tomato sauce, and cheese, but there are dozens of different variations. Some popular additions are meat, vegetables, and Béchamel sauce.
People have been eating noodles for at least 4,000 years, but culinary historians disagree over when and where the first pasta dish originated. We do know that tomatoes are a "New World" food, which means pasta and tomato dishes (like lasagna) have only been around since the 16th century.
To celebrate National Lasagna Day, bake a big pan of lasagna. Grab a bottle of red wine and invite some friends over to enjoy a fun, family-style dinner!"
