My love affair with lasagna runs far back and despite the fact I am of Scottish origin and this is the season of turkey and ham, I felt compelled to speak of my love.
Whether you are a meat, Florentine or even vegan Lasagna person, is there anything better?
Now some pizza folks will argue with me.
And yes, I know they both have a delicious carb base. They have red sauce goodness and bubbly cheese. Plus most add some form of 'topping' or filling.
So what sets lasagna apart? Is it the ricotta cheese?
On its own, ricotta is kind of... well... disgusting. I mean, how many people just dip their finger into the ricotta and go 'yum.' But some how that ricotta once baked into its proper place in the lasagna structure simply sings!
Still some may argue against even the mighty ricotta.
So to you folk who are still cheering on pizza, let me ask you this one simple question.
How many pieces of pizza to you have to eat to feel full? For me, at least 3-4.
But with Lasagna... Ah... one heavenly square of that hearty casserole and I am in tummy-full heaven.
How about you? Lasagna or Pizza. Comment on your fav below!
Because there is no in between!
