Our lasagna is easily one of the most popular dishes we serve at Mulino. We make our lasagna with fresh pasta made from local and organic Lindley Mill flour and organic eggs, beef, and pork ragu, bechamel, and 36-months-aged Parmigiano Reggiano. The combination of all of these flavors is truly out of this world! For all of our lasagna lovers out there, let’s take a deep dive into the unique history behind it.
You may not know this, but technically, Lasagna did not originate in Italy as you may expect. Its origin can be traced way back to Ancient Greece. The name Lasagna, or “Lasagne”, is derived from the Greek word “Laganon”; the first known form of pasta. Laganon was not a traditional lasagna as we know it with traditional Italian ingredients, but it was composed of layers of pasta and sauce. So it basically got its name from the method in which it was made, not for its ingredients. In different parts of Italy, you will find different types of Lasagna. The modern version of Lasagna was invented sometime between 1544 and 1692—most likely in either Emilia Romagna or Naples. Despite all of the confusion on where lasagna originated from most can agree that it tastes delicious, especially when you order it at Mulino. 😉
