It may come as a surprise to find that lasagna is not an Italian dish. Italy takes credit. However, they should only be recognized. By refining the layers and layers of the delectable lasagna meal. Its roots may be traced back to Ancient Greece.
The term “Lasagne” comes from the Greek word “Laganon,” which refers to the oldest known type of pasta. The lagoon was not the same as regular lasagna. Pasta and sauce were previously layered. As a result, the term is derived from the manner of preparation rather than the contents.
