I was born Italy, in Emilia, the heart of Italian pastas!
I say 100% Italian as Lasagne is the name we give to the sheets of pasta that then you can cook in several ways.
The classic Lasagne al ragu' (what you know as bolognese sauce) are those prepared with ragu', bechamel and parmesan.

Probably in the past, as for most of the dishes, there were similar ancestors around the world.. but what we know as Lasagna today, the dish widely spread, is totally Italian :)

So-if threads are old, one isn't supposed to ask any questions or post anything using the old thread? This is something I've wondered about...

Some of the replies were directed at the OP. If you look at his profile, you will see that the last recent post he made was in '05. Kinda makes you think he hasn't been around for awhile.

Next you will claim that Marco Polo was Italian, when as every Croation knows he was born on the Croatian island of Korcula

I meant not around the board, not that he just isn't around anymore. I prefered Benny Hill over Monty Python! Don't see anyone naming their ball python (that's royal python in your neck of the woods) Benny!

Even though his birthplace is not sure, he was Italian, no matter where he was born!
And he probably brought spaghetti from China.. then perfected in Italy and made famous :)
