I never met a lasagna I didn't like.

Before we get too far into July, I want to let you know that it is National Lasagna Awareness Month. Yes, that’s right — Lasagna AWARENESS — not Lasagna Celebration Month, or Lasagna Lovers Month, or even Lasagna History Month.
What is THAT about? I mean, I can wrap my head around National High Blood Pressure Awareness Month or National Breast Cancer Awareness Month — but come on folks, if you've got lasagna you KNOW it.
Nobody needs to remind you to be aware…
Unless, of course, those National Month Makers are making you AWARE of the fact that lasagnas travel straight from molars to thighs in less than 30 seconds.
And while I’m at it — why July? I don’t know about you, but when it’s 95 degrees outside the FIRST thing I think of is cranking my oven to 375° for an hour.
So be AWARE —
- A serving of lasagna has about 500 calories. Yeah, you’ll have to walk 2 ½ hours to remove it from your thighs.
- If you make lasagna in July, it includes the dry sauna bonus feature.
- Lasagna is awesome — face it, you could bake an old shoe in a pan of lasagna and it would still be good. That’s some serious awesome.
