Who doesn't love Pizza, Pasta, Risotto, Focaccia, Gelato, and of course Garfield's favorite Lasagna.


What Is Lasagna Made Of?

Lasagna is a classic Italian dish that consists of layers of pasta, meat sauce, and cheese.

The specific ingredients used can vary depending on the recipe, but here are some common ingredients found in lasagna recipes:

  • Pasta
  • Meat
  • Tomato Sauce
  • Cheese
  • Herbs and Spices: Garlic, onion, basil, and oregano

To make lasagna, the ingredients are layered in a baking dish and baked in the oven until hot and bubbly.

The specific layering order can vary depending on the recipe but typically involves layering the pasta, meat sauce, and cheese mixture.

 The Best Lasagna In Michigan

Here is what Love Food had to say about La Lanterna

For a lasagne that’s bursting with flavor, head to pizza and pasta spot La Lanterna and order the Lasagna alla Bolognese. The meat sauce is super rich and it’s covered in a generous serving of cheese. Some guests say it’s the best they’ve tasted. You can find it on the menu at the restaurant’s sister sites too.


La Lanterna is worth checking out, and so are these other new restaurants in West Michigan.
