De Cecco Egg Lasagne is a timeless and cherished pasta variety that carries with it a rich history steeped in Italian culinary tradition. Lasagna, one of the oldest recorded forms of pasta, has its roots traced back to ancient times. It likely corresponds to the Latin "Lagana," which, in turn, was derived from the Greek "laganon," referring to large, flat sheets of pasta cut into strips. However, it wasn't until around 1000 AD that the name "Lasagna" began to take shape. The first traces of the widespread use of the term "Lasagna" can be found in the works of renowned Italian poets from the 12th century. For example, Jacopone da Todi poetically proclaimed that "Granel di pepe vince / per virtù la lasagna," highlighting the virtuous qualities of a single peppercorn compared to lasagna. Cecco Angiolieri, on the other hand, humorously warned his readers with the proverb, "chi de l'altrui farina fa lasagne / il su' castello non ha ne muro ne fosso," meaning that those who make lasagna with someone else's flour will have neither walls nor moat to protect their castle.
- Lasagna has long held its place as one of the most well-known and beloved types of pasta in Italian cuisine. The classic recipe involves layering lasagna sheets with ragù (meat sauce), béchamel sauce, and Parmesan cheese, resulting in a rich and hearty dish. More recently, mozzarella has also been introduced, adding a delightful gooeyness to this iconic Italian comfort food.
- Beyond the classic recipe, lasagna's versatility shines through. "White" versions with sauces made from mushrooms and vegetables have become commonplace, offering a lighter alternative to the traditional meat-based preparation. These variations showcase the adaptability and creativity that Italian cooking is celebrated for.
