Round lasagna. Totally different.

[–]Emmx2039 293 points294 points  (2 children)

The taste is more well rounded

[–]Vote4Calvin 46 points47 points  (1 child)

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

[–]Emmx2039 30 points31 points  (0 children)

Make sure there is is enough to go round though!

Wouldn't that make it a pie?

A round plate.

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

    [–]Liz_zarro 205 points206 points  (5 children)

    It's just lasagna with extra steps!

    [–]TurtleMayonaise 1 point2 points  (1 child)

    How so few upvotes after an hour?

    [–][deleted] 1 point2 points  (0 children)

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

    Lasagna Cake sounds like Deep Dish Pizza to me

    [–]ElementalThreat 35 points36 points  (8 children)

    You put lasagna pasta in your pizza?

    [–]G0_pack_go 15 points16 points  (3 children)

    Penne is the preferred pizza pasta.

    [–]geetar_man 3 points4 points  (1 child)

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

          [–]bradhalo59 189 points190 points  (27 children)

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

          [–]tviolet 34 points35 points  (1 child)

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

          [–]Virgowitch 2 points3 points  (0 children)

          Me, too. Now I'm sad.

          [–]russiangerman[S] 91 points92 points  (16 children)

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

          [–]arkain123 86 points87 points  (6 children)

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

          [–]russiangerman[S] 140 points141 points  (4 children)

          I'm not qualified to tell you how to self identify

          [–]nolm 7 points8 points  (0 children)

          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.

          [–]IenjoyGamesLol 6 points7 points  (0 children)

          Well what we have here then is an Italian Cake.

          [–]dutchrudder04 3 points4 points  (5 children)

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

          [–]russiangerman[S] 7 points8 points  (4 children)

          I use raw noodles so that would have been tricky lol

          [–]dutchrudder04 2 points3 points  (1 child)

          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.

          [–]SweetSlowKiss 12 points13 points  (1 child)

          This is obviously lasagna pie.

          [–]slickrasta 73 points74 points  (8 children)

          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!

          [–]NETSPLlT 10 points11 points  (0 children)

          Time for a lasagna bundt cake!

          [–]anacondatmz 4 points5 points  (2 children)

          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.

          [–]parumph 7 points8 points  (2 children)

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

          [–]Shteevie 18 points19 points  (0 children)

          Next thing you know, people will be making cakes in lasagna pans.

          The horror!

          [–]Zackadeez 17 points18 points  (4 children)

          What’s ‘cake’ about it?

          [–]NETSPLlT 6 points7 points  (0 children)

          It's shaped like a urinal cake.

            [–]italianshark 173 points174 points  (13 children)

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

            [–]littlecolt 57 points58 points  (11 children)

            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!

            [–]smellsliketeenferret 17 points18 points  (10 children)

            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!

            [–]CuFlam 19 points20 points  (1 child)

            Pros - It will (probably) cook more evenly

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

            [–]smellsliketeenferret 9 points10 points  (0 children)

            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...!

            [–]kshucker 13 points14 points  (6 children)

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

            [–]smellsliketeenferret 10 points11 points  (3 children)

            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... ;)

            [–]Noshferatu 3 points4 points  (2 children)

            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.

            [–]smellsliketeenferret 1 point2 points  (1 child)

            [–]arkain123 0 points1 point  (0 children)

            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.

            [–]Jeshistar 1 point2 points  (0 children)

            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.

            [–]Wppf 1 point2 points  (0 children)

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

            [–]russiangerman[S] 91 points92 points  (27 children)

            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 !!

            [–]swinesmoker 26 points27 points  (10 children)

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

            [–]rasteri 23 points24 points  (7 children)

            Is there a chance the track could bend?

            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

            [–]OmgLikeForSureDude 5 points6 points  (0 children)

            Parenthesis overload. Abort...abort!!

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

            [–]Eflarose 6 points7 points  (2 children)

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

            [–]russiangerman[S] 2 points3 points  (1 child)

            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

            [–][deleted] 2 points3 points  (1 child)

            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.

            [–]russiangerman[S] 1 point2 points  (0 children)

            Is it cake because it's round?

              That’s a crispy lasaga

              [–]russiangerman[S] 2 points3 points  (0 children)

              Just a little on top ;)

              [–]Amadeus_Ray 2 points3 points  (0 children)

              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.

              [–]fernguts 2 points3 points  (0 children)

              False! This is clearly lasagna pie.

              Also, gimmee.

              [–]angerpillow 4 points5 points  (0 children)

              That’s pretty Italian for a russiangerman.

              [–]jpegstohelenkeller 5 points6 points  (0 children)

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

              [–]3bdelilah 1 point2 points  (3 children)

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

              [–]scuders3 1 point2 points  (2 children)

              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

              [–]Bluthiest 1 point2 points  (0 children)

              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?

              [–]DoctorOddfellow 1 point2 points  (0 children)

              Hmm, I thought that was Chicago-style manicotti.

              [–]trivenefica 1 point2 points  (0 children)

              [–]Reverentu 1 point2 points  (0 children)

              In Chicago they'd call this a pizza

              [–]Dookman214 1 point2 points  (0 children)

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

              [–]MyFiveC3nts 3 points4 points  (0 children)

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

              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.

              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

              [–]neurad1 0 points1 point  (0 children)

              Yeah I noticed that the pesto looked weird.

              My hungry ass thought that was a deep dish pizza

              [–]jcav258 0 points1 point  (3 children)

              Cut into 7 slices because 8 would be too much

              Looks like a Lasagna pizza to me.

                maybe you were trying to make carrot cake but you forgot to put the carrot

                [–]werkshop1313 0 points1 point  (0 children)

                When life gives you cake pans, make round lasagna!
