July 29: National Lasagna Day

Several origin stories surround lasagna, and a couple point to Ancient Greece as the birthplace of this cheesy comfort food – including one that the name stems from the type of serving dish, lasonon, used to bake lasagna. Now characteristic of central Italy, lasagna has many flavorful variations, depending on the region.

What better place to celebrate this special day than Muriale’s Restaurant! At Muriale’s, “their sauce is their signature.”  They have been serving southern Italian cuisine since 1969.
