Cooking up a homemade lasagna is a labor of love. This particular dish really gets the meat (made from plants) to cheese to sauce ratios just right, and doesn’t skimp on the heartiness. This recipe calls specifically for San Marzano tomatoes, which add a big hit of bold flavor and sweetness, without the acidity of many other tomato varieties. A word about San Marzano tomatoes, because you may have heard people rave about them for tomato sauces. The San Marzano is a variety of the plum tomato, but it is decidedly different from the Roma tomatoes you see everywhere. The San Marzano is two to three inches long, and narrower than the Roma. If you take your index finger and touch your thumb, that circular space is about how big around they are. They aren’t plump like Romas, and in fact look a little scrawny. But they are packed with flavor. These tomatoes are grown in a specific region of Italy known as the Valle de Sarno, and their name and cultivation is strictly monitored by the Italian government. They are fairly easy to find canned in most supermarkets. You should have no problem getting some San Marzanos, so don’t stress about that. And trust us—they’re worth it. As if you needed even more reason to love lasagna, it’s perfect for portioning and making sure everyone gets the exact amount that they want. Cut smaller pieces for the kids, and bigger pieces for the adults. And we can almost guarantee everyone will want seconds! This Impossible™ Lasagna is also perfect for storing in the fridge and heating up later for leftovers.
