July 29 is National Lasagna Day, and to celebrate the family-style Italian restaurant, Buca di Beppo, is offering FREE lasagna. Valid at any of the 87 Buca locations throughout the country, guests who purchase any Buca Small or Buca Large sized pasta or entrée will receive a free lunch-sized portion of lasagna.
Buca di Beppo lasagna is famous for its towering layers of lasagna noodles stuffed with homemade meat sauce and a combination of ricotta, mozzarella, provolone and parmesan cheeses; a favorite among Buca guests. The casual Italian eatery also offers a variety of budget friendly pastas and entrées including spaghetti with meatballs, fettuccine alfredo and chicken parmigiana. In addition, Buca recently introduced 10 new menu items that include Prosciutto Stuffed Chicken, Chianti Braised Short Ribs, Penne San Remo, Baked Rigatoni and many more delectable dishes.
The origins of lasagna date back to the 1st century B.C. where a food called “lagana” was a common meal consisting of fine sheets of fried dough. In the 2nd century Athenaeus of Naucratis, a Greek scholar, provided a recipe for lagana that was made with sheets of wheat-flour dough and the juice of crushed lettuce, then flavored with spices and deep-fried in oil. An early 5th century cookbook describes a dish called lagana that consisted of layers of dough with meat stuffing, a possible ancestor of modern-day Lasagna, though the first concrete information concerning pasta products in Italy dates from the thirteenth or fourteenth century. The word “lagána” survives today in modern-day Greece to denote an unleavened, flat bread eaten during the Great Lent.
