“What could possibly be better than a great lasagna recipe? A whole slew of them, plus some wonderful baked pastas too.”—Ruth Reichl
Whether you’re craving a meatball lasagna, keeping it stupid simple with a slow cooker spinach lasagna, or hosting brunch with an eggy carbonara lasagna that shouts “Hello!” from the center of the table, you’ll find plenty of new ways to cook the classic dish in Lasagna: A Baked Pasta Cookbook.
In addition to a lasagna recipe for every occasion, the book features many creative ideas for what to eat with it, including the perfect iceberg lettuce salad you’ve ordered a million times in Italian restaurants, pillowy garlic knots, and a tiramisu for the twenty-first century. A baked pasta chapter delivers non-lasagna showstoppers, like skillet-baked spaghetti and timpano.
With 50 recipes, mouth-watering photography, and plenty of tips, Lasagna is a detailed and delicious celebration of a baked pasta icon.
Advance praise for Lasagna
“An exuberant love letter to the bubbling, bronzed, bricklike comfort of lasagna. I foresee 200 percent more lasagna in my kitchen this fall, just as Anna Hezel and the editors of TASTE wanted for me.”—Deb Perelman, Smitten Kitchen
“Garfield’s love of lasagna is well-documented. In his opinion, it’s nature’s perfect food. I’m often asked, ‘Why lasagna?’ Truth is, lasagna is my favorite food. So, it looks like Garfield and I will be fighting over this delightful book.”—Jim Davis, creator of Garfield
“The sad truth is that lasagna—a dish of such great potential—is too often sloughed together haphazardly, a multithousand-calorie doorstop for the potluck table. Anna Hezel and the team from TASTE have, thankfully, reconsidered Garfield’s favorite food and laid out, in friendly and encouraging words and pictures, simple and essential ways to elevate your lasagna game. Plus they’ve mapped out a great range of baked pastas and the lasagna-adjacent dishes of the world, so you can set sail from red sauce seas to faraway horizons, discovering variations of baked noodle bliss you may have never known were within your reach.”—Peter Meehan, food editor of the Los Angeles Times and cofounder of Lucky Peach
