When it comes to layers, I prefer mine savory. Lasagna, that multi-story oozy treat, is the antidote to my cravings. By now, the formula is rote: tomato sauce, cheese, sheets of pasta. But, at times, convention begs reinvention. So while the classics are good—great even—with lasagna, there’s always room for interpretation.
Sub red sauce for a brown one; stuff a new vegetable between its soft layers; or turn everything on its head and deconstruct the dang thing. Regardless of where you take your lasagna, they prove a solid weeknight companion—hearty, warm, easy, and endlessly riffable. Here we’ve rounded up some of the best lasagna recipes from our site.
