Italian fare has evolved into a staple of the American restaurant, menu, and dinner table. This dish has been on Italian tables for generations, different and distinctly-prepared depending on the region that you visit. While lasagna has changed, it remains a popular favorite that never fails to satisfy the taste-buds of the entire family.
An Italian Favorite
While most American diners consider the traditional layered lasagna comprised of meats, cheeses, and a red-sauce, each Italian region offers its own distinct variation and spin on the dish. For example, consider the sweet and buttery lasagna da formel of Veneto featuring dried fruits and nuts or the fresh and green piccage lasagna found in Genoa, which truly highlights basil with a simple and refreshing preparation. Dig a bit deeper to find distinctive preparations of lasagna that will surprise and tempt you.
Modern Menu Items
Diners will also find a range of contemporary versions of lasagna crafted and created by chefs widely to appease discriminating lasagna-lovers. Restaurants put their own touch on this traditional, including on the menu at a Mountain View Italian restaurant, where it receives top-notch reviews and repeat customers.
Healthy Approaches to Lasagna
Diners don't need to feel guilty about enjoying this dish; many menus embrace a healthy approach with simple modifications that result in a tasty and lighter meal. You can do this yourself, at home, by adding greens, light sauces, and using noodles of flour and water, instead of the more-traditional and heavier egg noodle.
