Why Homemade Lasagna Recipes are Wonderfully Unique

Lasagna is not only one of the best pasta recipes in the world, but it is also one of the most ancient. Dating back to the ancient Greeks, this hearty recipe makes a wonderful dinner.

Lovely lasagna features layers of thin pasta, hot melted cheese, fresh Italian herbs, savory meat and tango tomato sauce, and this amazing concoction is one of the best loved recipes ever. It is just a shame that so many people have only sampled frozen boxed lasagna or eaten it in restaurants, when it is so easy to make at home.

No Side Dishes Required

Lasagna is unique because it combines all the food groups in one dish. The pasta, meat, vegetables, and sauce work together in harmony to make the dish really well balanced and you do not need to make side dishes because lasagna is a complete meal. If you dread having lots of pots bubbling over on the stove, just make a lasagna and pop it in the oven until it is done.

It really is that easy to make homemade lasagna. If you are making your own recipe, you can tweak the recipe if you want to and make it uniquely yours, because everyone has their own palate, preferences, and favorite tastes. Many lasagna recipes keep well in the refrigerator for a few days or freeze for months.

Cooking Tips for Perfect Lasagna Recipes

Different Kinds of Lasagna Recipes Around the WorldIf you want to make delicious lasagna, then follow the Italians’ example and use fresh produce wherever possible. You can cheat and use a canned tomato sauce but make your own if you have time. You could even make your own pasta noodles and mozzarella cheese if you wanted to make lasagna totally from scratch, but often it is enough to use fresh ingredients where possible and make sure the others are high quality ingredients. Use good quality olive oil and ground beef, for example, and fresh herbs if the recipe calls for fresh. The finished lasagna will taste really good then.

Making and Freezing Lasagna

Lasagna can be made in bulk and frozen because it freezes really well. You can freeze uncooked lasagna or cooked lasagna and either cook it or reheat it when you are ready to serve it. If you are going to make lasagna in bulk, you will need to prepare all your ingredients before you begin. Making several lasagnas can be time-consuming but just think how much time you are going to save on busy weeknights when, instead of cooking from scratch, all you need to do is pop a frozen homemade lasagna into the oven.
