Lasagna, or Lasagne, pronounced [laˈzaɲɲa], plural [laˈzaɲɲe], is a very wide, flat pasta ( sometimes with wavy edges ). It is typically served in alternating layers with cheese, a sauce, and often other ingredients such as meat sauce, or vegetable. Typical of the central cuisine of Italy, many regional variations exist. In some areas, especially in the southern regions of Italy, the sauce is likely to be a simple tomato sauce and ragù, whereas in other areas, particularly in Northern Italy, a Béchamel sauce is used more generously . Lasagna has become a popular dish in other parts of the world, traveling from Europe to the Americas.
