Lasagna is a favorite by the majority, whether cooking for a potluck or even just for dinner. It is a layer of sauce, vegetables, cheese and in some cases meat, being sandwiched between sheets of pasta leading to a dish which is so enjoyable to make and eat.
There are certain things to bear in mind when it comes to making lasagna. And these are the following:
Here’s a video on how to make a lasagna:
So, after making a lasagna, would you prefer eating it all alone without any side dishes? If I were you, I would find the best side dish for lasagna. So, what goes with lasagna? Here, let me provide you some options to choose from:
You might consider a Caprese salad appetizer in order to accompany the lasagna. Simply cut fresh tomatoes as well as mozzarella then layer these slices on the plate with some fresh basil leaves.
After that, drizzle them with the extra-virgin oil and finish it with a sprinkle of the freshly ground peppercorns.
Or you might also up a plate of antipasto complete with the grilled yellow and red bell peppers, kalamata olives, divided cherry tomatoes and a rolled salami. Serve lasagna with thin and crispy breadsticks and whole grain crackers once you prefer saving the bread for the meal.
Well, don’t you know that having the right crispy and chewy bread that goes well with lasagna is so important whether it is a flour-dusted artisanal whole grain loaf or a tangy sourdough? Usually, Italian bread is made with some dairy like eggs or butter and olive oil.
You can simply serve the bread with a dish of olive oil on the side for dripping and grind a bit of fresh black pepper into the olive oil bowl before you serve for the flavor explosion.
If you have a warm and cheesy meat or veggie lasagna, then a large green salad is the right accompaniment to consider. Toss romaine, endive, and butter and arugula lettuces along with black olives, cherry tomatoes, and purple onions.
You can top a green salad with the shredded Parmesan cheese and also a creamy dressing then serve it before the lasagna being an appetizer or also alongside the main course.
And of course, you can end the lasagna dinner with your traditional Italian dessert. Once a fried cannoli filled with cream and chocolate chips sound a bit too heavy then serve a blend of fresh berries along with the cannoli cream.
Or you might also consider your hand at creating one of the versions of the tiramisu which is an Italian dessert prepared by layering the espresso-soaked ladyfingers along with sweetened mascarpone cheese as well as chocolate shavings.
Still in doubt whether what goes with lasagna? The options mentioned above must not be ignored as they could make your lasagna dinner more than just an appetizing meal.
Though you can enjoy lasagna even without a side dish, it would be best to consider those foods that could go well with lasagna.
