For the musical hoax, see Grove Dictionary of Music and Musicians#Humour.[1][2]Baked lasagne (lasagne al forno)Lasagna (USA) or Lasagne (UK and Italy) (English pronunciation: /ləˈzænjə/ or /ləˈzɑːnjə/, Italian pronunciation: [laˈzaɲːe]) is a wide and flat type of pasta and possibly one of the oldest shapes.[1] The word also refers to a dish (lasagne) made with this type of pasta. As with most other types of pasta, the word is generally used in its plural form lasagne meaning more than one piece of lasagna ribbon . Traditionally, the dough was prepared in Southern Italy with semolina and water and in the northern regions, where semolina was not available, with flour and eggs. Nowadays in Italy, since the only type of wheat allowed for pasta is durum wheat, lasagne are made of semolina (from durum wheat) and eggs. There is a green version which is coloured with spinach.
