I should say the sauce cooks for 4 hours and that makes it just smooth sauce, so you might eaten celery with out knowing it. it is called soffritto in Italian and in French mirepoix.

Thank you. Agreed. And no, it was not in the sauce and no there was no meat.

My first wife was Italian from Calabria..back when I was in my 20's is was just getting into cooking so, when I made her lasagna I put celery in the tomato sauce..she ate it, and the next time I said I was going to make it she spoke up and said do "not" put celery in it ever again..lol

I use celery a lot. I like it. But, in a lasagna, the texture would be wrong, IMO. I can see it working with a pasta dish, but not lasagna.

I'm thinking that Garfield would not approve of that lasagna.

What texture? When cooked for 4 hours it soft and blends into the sauce if you stir.

Celery would also give off too much water as it cooks ...

I know what CP was talking about, however that was not was the question was and I pointed out twice that it was meatless lasagna. And considering that person is using celery as filling, do you think that person would bother cooking sauce for 4 hours?
