We all grew up eating pretty much the same lasagna—ground beef, red sauce, cheese and noodles. As delicious as it is, that lasagna is so last century.
With a little inspiration, today’s cook takes the basic idea of lasagna and changes, adds and subtracts to create something new. Nowadays, lasagna can include hazelnuts, butternut squash, zucchini and more. Some lasagnas don’t even require noodles, while lasagna rolls are made without the traditional rectangular baking dish.
Just about everyone loves lasagna, which is one reason it shows up so often in casual entertaining menus. Another is that it lets the host cook just one large item. Bread and salad from the store round out the meal.
