Britain claims to have invented lasagna

The BBC is reporting that researchers poring over a 14th century cookbook have found a recipe that they claim is "lasagne". However, if you read the description of the dish in this story, it's pasta with layers of cheese, whichsounds a lot more like homemade macaroni and cheese. (Not "Kraft Dinner" macaroni and cheese--or pot noodles--the made from scratch with real cheese kind.)

Inventing macaroni and cheese would be a great thing, but it's not the same as inventing lasagna.

Mmmmm....homemade macaroni and cheese (*drooling sounds*)
