Lasagna is usually made and prepared with sauces and meat or vegetarian style and it has a long and rich history in many recipes. Lasagna originated in Italy, traditionally ascribed to the city of Naples, Campania, where the first modern recipe was created in the Middle ages and published in Liber de Coquina (the book of cookery) and became a traditional dish. Traditional lasagna is made by interweaving layers of pasta with layers of sauce, made with ragu, béchamel, and Parmigianino Reggiano. In other regions and outside of Italy it is common to find lasagna made with ricotta or mozzarella cheese, tomato sauce, various meats (e.g., ground beef, pork or chicken), miscellaneous vegetables (e.g., spinach, zucchini, mushrooms) and typically flavored with wine, garlic, onion, and oregano. In all cases the lasagnas are oven-baked. The actual ingredients and sauce varieties are again specific to your taste and what your diners love. Traditionally, pasta dough prepared in Southern parts of Italy used semolina and water and in the northern Italian regions, where semolina was not available, flour and eggs were the base. Today in Italy, since the only type of wheat allowed for commercially sold pasta is durum wheat; commercial lasagnas are made of semolina.
The fact that you can make a dessert recipe and include the word lasagna is excellent since most diners have eaten lasagna at one time or another and you will peak their interest right away.
