In updating a recipe on this blog I noticed that I have quite a few lasagna recipes, all of which are vegetarian (of course), but quite different from one another. I also noticed that in the various recipes I tend to spell lasagna two different ways (either with an “a” or with an “e” at the end). I looked it up and apparently “lasagna” is the singular, but in Italy only the plural “lasagne” is used. But I think I prefer the American spelling, which allows you to distinguish between one lasagna and multiple lasagnas. Below are the five lasagnas I make. None of these lasagnas are perfect. But they’re all good enough that I’ve made them more than once. If anyone has the ultimate vegetarian lasagne recipe, please do post a comment.
