So..lasagna?

1.1k points · 6 months ago

Round lasagna. Totally different.

294 points · 6 months ago

The taste is more well rounded

In fact it was so good I'll have to order another round

Make sure there is is enough to go round though!

I'm not impressed until I see triangle lasagna

Take a slice, you'll get there.

And the circle is complete you win the internet today.

I literally said this out loud just before I clicked the comments. Looks dynamite OP, nonetheless.

Spaghetti cake.

That sounds fucking luscious.

Isn't that just a round lasagna cut into triangles?

Probably because someone said “cut into triangles” about 3 comments up.

Lasagna Cake sounds like Deep Dish Pizza to me

You put lasagna pasta in your pizza?

Penne is the preferred pizza pasta.

Pun an egg in there and it’d practically be timpano.

Just because you used a round pan doesn't make it cake, unless somewhere in there you gots some German chocolate?

I was kinda hoping it was a really fancy cake that looked like lasagna but was actually white chocolate.

Me, too. Now I'm sad.

Original Poster94 points · 6 months ago · edited 6 months ago

But i used a springform. And it's standing on it's own... Like a cake

I stand on my own, russiangerman, am I a cake?

Of course a cake would say that.

I think it's a great idea, it looks great, and I want to try making lasagna this way. I showed it to my grandma is who is big into lasagnas and she is a fan too.

Well what we have here then is an Italian Cake.

You should run a ribbon around the outside next time, it’ll look more cakeish.

Original Poster8 points · 6 months ago

I use raw noodles so that would have been tricky lol

Fair. You could also just run the ribbons, one end from the middle out, hang it over the side of the form, fill, then fold on top and cover in cheese.

This is obviously lasagna pie.

My favourite part of this is there should be more crispy edges than a lasagna in a rectangular pan since in those it burns mostly in the corners. Burnt lasagna corner pieces are the best!

Time for a lasagna bundt cake!

Hmmm just had an idea... What about lasagnas in a muffin tray. You'd get a whole bunch of them with some crispy edges on nearly every bite as each individual would be muffin sized.

2 more replies

Technically a round lasagna would have the least amount of crispy edges possible for a given surface area.

I believe it’s just made of Lasagna, but I’m no expert.

First, you wanna take your ingredients for lasagna, and put them together just like normal, but instead of how you would normally put it into a square or rectangular pan... Instead, use a circular cake pan!

The wierd thing about this is that I'm in my mid-40's and it had never occurred to me to make lasagne in a round cake tin until now. I'm torn; is it a good idea or not? I'm thinking that it could all fall apart when you take the slices out, and that the tip of the wedge will get colder faster than the rest, but there's something strangely appealing about it!

21 points · 6 months ago

Pros - It will (probably) cook more evenly

Cons - You have to cut/tear the noodles to fit (more so than with a rectangular pan).

If I was making my own pasta sheets then round could be easier than square; no need for cutting, just roll 'em out and use them fresh. The problem is that I don't often make my own pasta... Tempted...!

29 year old guy here. It has never occurred to me to make food ever.

You should try. There's nothing more theraputic than coming home from a tough day at work, grabbing a knife and chopping the crap out of something. You will then find you are relaxed enough to start cooking... ;)

I don't know... I find that coming home after a hard day's work and not moving from the sofa while staring at the television is pretty therapeutic.

Homes under the Hammer? :)

Eggheads!

I'm from a rich family and only had to cook after I left home and was broke. Discovered I actually love the hell out of cooking. You should try it, it's so cool.

I've done this before just because I had a better sized round dish. My family liked it better than the square ones - easier to serve, too.

I was more asking for the steps to get it to stay like that. Guess I should have worded that better.

Original Poster95 points · 6 months ago

Fry up about a half onion with about a pound of beef season and about a half bulb of garlic minced. Onion with a little oil first first (and carrots if you want them, I completely forgot to add them) then meat and garlic,

just before it's all brown throw in about a half cup of wine (I used chianti) and a half cup broth (might go full cup wine next time) cook out the alcohol, add in the tomato sauce (I blend 2 cans seasoned diced tomatoes, drained, and a small can of paste).

Season some more and add the other half bulb minced garlic (yes I used a whole bulb) I used some fresh basil and rosemary too. I simmered it for about 20 minutes I think, until it was a thick consistency (didn't want the cake to fall).

I used an 8 oz ball of fresh mozzarella and a 16 oz ricotta (mix in an egg. Firms up better I guess) and shredded fontina for a thick layer on top (bakes well without burning)

I used a spring form (breaking lasagna for a circle was a bitch) a little sauce on the bottom (minimal stuff). Layer of pasta, sauce, ricotta, pasta, sauce, mozzarella sliced thin (and just a little ricotta so the pasta sits better), pasta, sauce mized with ricotta bc I was almost out of both. Top w that bomb ass fontina and sprinkle some of that fresh herbs and garlic.

Bake an hour at 350, uncovered, let sit for about 15 minutes before opening the spring. I'm sitting at over an hour and it hasn't slumped. And it tastes fucking amazing. Good luck !!

What makes you think that this “cake” would fall? Why all the concern about that?

If it was too wet it could start to slip maybe? Idk never seen lasagna stand up on it's own so wasn't sure what to expect

Parenthesis overload. Abort...abort!!

Seriously though your description is awesome. I know where the rest of the Chianti went my friend.

Why would you add the wine and broth before the meat is browned? Let the meat brown first, get some more flavor in there.

Original Poster3 points · 6 months ago

Some people say the texture is better when it finishes cooking in sauce so I try to only brown half. Still working on the whole sauce from scratch thing

I like to use a food processor and mix in spinach with the ricotta and egg. Adds a lot of flavor. Your recipe sounds awesome btw.

My dad use to put 8 chimichangas in a glass rectangular container, sprinkle it with cheese on top then a few more burritos on top of that. More cheese. Then heat it in the oven.

After it’s cooked, he’d get a spatula out and basically carved out squares for portions then ate it like it’s lasagna. I started to eat on my own after that. I’m pretty sure my mom was allowing him to passively kill him self.

False! This is clearly lasagna pie.

Also, gimmee.

That’s pretty Italian for a russiangerman.

OP, you’re getting a lot of shit for calling this cake, but don’t take it badly. That looks delicious. Great work.

As someone on a keto diet right now, I would kill for some lasagna.

Been there friendo. Try stacking beef browned with small amount of tomato paste and beef broth, aubergine (eggplant) and cheese. Nowhere near the original but still a very welcome low-carb option when the cravings are bad

That plate is making me nervous because it’s way too small. What happened when you cut into it? Where do all the delicious lasagna cake juices flow?

Hmm, I thought that was Chicago-style manicotti.

I was totally expecting an actual cake that was made to look like lasagna!

In Chicago they'd call this a pizza

Just because it is round does not justify calling it a cake. It’s just a circle lasagna.

Pretty sure I saw a crime show of a serial killer who made his lasagna like that as well... it just ain’t right.

Lasagna Deep Dish Pizza!*

I'm still in bed and I want two slices of that for breakfast right now!

Oh you mean Chicago style pizza

My husband refuses to eat lasagna because it's pasta cake and that's just fucking weird

He's Russian, but holds an Estonian citizenship despite their hatred of each other, and serves in the US military.....he is the epitome of weird.

Because of This, I would eat this lasagna cake and make him love it too. Well done OP, you odd fucker.

Looks dry.

Original Poster2 points · 6 months ago

Not at all actually! I just tried to be careful stacking around the edges bc I didn't want it to fall right away

Badaboom Badabing

I would gain a lot of weight eating that, looks amazzzzing!

Look at dat cheese doe.

I don’t know, I like the burnt edges of the rectangle variety but I will still eat this

The best kind of cake

I think I put on about 3 pounds just looking at the picture.

ok, what should I do now? as I cant eat that

But the corner bits are the best... Circles have no corners...

Pizza pie

This lasagna doesn't exist. It's just a cluster of tetrahedrons moving around together.

LOOKS SO GOOD 😋

Not only does this thing exist, but now you have robbed us all of cake!

Aw man! Best thing I've seen on here in a while. I love it!

mouthwatering Lasagna tasting is necessary :D

That looks bloody lovely!

Damn. I honestly thought I was so creative

That does not look good, way too much red in meat and the pesto is so thick

Nope, kina just winged it :)

My hungry ass thought that was a deep dish pizza

Cut into 7 slices because 8 would be too much

It's 8

Cut into 8 slices because 9 would be too much

Looks like a Lasagna pizza to me.
