Lasagna for me is a special dish. It is the first Italian dish that I tried and came to love. My friends and I used to drive an hour-long journey to this Italian restaurant just to enjoy some good Italian food. Of course, pizza was the most ordered sharing dish for us but I would still order my own lasagna just to satisfy my craving.

Lasagna is a super flavourful and very meaty dish. It can be quite cheesy as well if you add extra cheese with the likes of mozzarella and parmesan. I know some restaurants serve very cheesy lasagna but I don’t really enjoy it too much. I like it to be meaty with abit of parmesan cheese will do. It isn’t just me alone, even my wife prefers the meaty lasagna more than an overloaded cheesy one.
