TIP OF THE DAY: National Lasagne Day

Today is National Lasagne Day, the plural of lasagna and the more appropriate term—after all, there’s more than one noodle in the recipe! The dish dates back to Roman times, although Roman lasagne was not as delicious as the layered noodles, cheese and tomato sauce many of us enjoy today. That’s because the Romans did not have tomatoes, which originated in Peru (as cherry tomatoes) and were brought to Europe by the Spanish Conquistadors in the 16th century—where they were enjoyed as houseplants until the 18th century!
