Freshly made lasagna gives off an incredible aroma while it bakes and the flavor is really mouthwatering.

How Easy Can Lasagna Be?

Lasagna is a very easy dish to make and if you have been eating frozen boxed lasagnas for years, you have really been missing out on the goodness and amazing flavor of homemade lasagna. Making this tasty dish does not take long. You will need to chop some vegetables, brown some meat and assemble the lasagna in a dish before you bake it, but there is nothing much more to it than that.

Introduction to LasagnaThe fact that there are so many different recipes for lasagna means you can pick out the one that tempts you the most, whether that is a classic ground beef lasagna with a creamy ricotta sauce, a gourmet seafood lasagna, a chicken or turkey lasagna, a no-meat one, or even something exotic and international.

How to Serve Lasagna

This dish can be served on its own if you like, since it includes all the food groups. Combining pasta, vegetables, meat, and sauce, a piping hot plate of lasagna makes a satisfying and hearty meal on its own. If you do want to serve something with it, you can choose from other comfort food options like garlic bread or fries, or something healthy such as a tossed salad or some vegetables.

If you are making a vegetable lasagna recipe, you will not want to serve vegetables on the side but if you are making a basic beef lasagna with mushrooms in it, for example, you might like to serve creamed spinach or steamed broccoli with the lasagna, to boost the nutrient count.
