The Hundred-Layer Lasagne

Mark Ladner makes lasagne (that's how the article spells it) in pans that hold 80 potions portions each, using 50 layers of paper-thin pasta and 50 layers of three sauces. It's part of a nine-course meal at the New York restaurant Del Posto.
Ladner debuted this lofty lasagne a few months ago on his $500 Collezione menu, a lavish, one-party-per-service immersion into the full Del Posto experience (wine included), in which the 6-foot-4 chef serves each of the nine savory courses himself. For the lasagne course, he carries a sizeable hunk into the dining room on a silver tray, places it on a gueridon, and proceeds to carve the thing tableside. That’s right, he carves the lasagne tableside, a technique perhaps never before performed on Garfield’s favorite foodstuff.

You can also get the 100-layer lasagne for lunch the next day, fried with tomato sauce. Link -via J-Walk Blog

Well, it's hardly American laziness, you can hardly import the entire grammatical system of another language every time you want to borrow a word.
Quick, without looking - what's the correct plural for 'humus'

In italian the singular female is "lasagna" and the plural female is "lasagne."

It's the same, technically, with pizza and pizze!

But, we're American, so we ignore most other languages and do it our way...
