When the mercury drops, one of our favorite dishes to make is an oven-baked lasagna. This Italian food, traditionally consisting of layers of meat, cheese, noodles, and tomato sauce, is comfort food at its best.
Want to make your lasagna a little more exciting? Here are some delicious ingredients that you can add to make it unique.
We grew up eating lots of lasagna as children, and our family’s recipe always included pepperoni. This Italian cured meat adds a rich touch to lasagna and makes it even tastier.
Lasagna is delicious, but it isn’t always the most flavor-forward dish. If you’re looking to jazz up your lasagna and add stronger flavors, using Italian sausage instead of normal ground meat is a fantastic option.
Lasagna doesn’t have to be an unhealthy dish! In fact, if you replace the meat with spinach, you’ll make a healthy and vegetarian-friendly dish that is both guilt-free and super flavorful.
Eggplant is another great alternative for meat in lasagna dishes. Or, if you want to have the best of both worlds, top your lasagna with eggplant for a fun decorative element!
