National Lasagna Day Is Thursday

Thick pasta layers drown in a pool of rich meat sauce
while creamy ricotta and feathery Parmesan mingle about.
Bubbly, gooey, chewy.
Burnt, crisp edges crunch as
herby tomato juices hope to run down chins amok...
Mmhhh, lasagna.

Am I making you hungry yet?

It's difficult to find anyone who doesn't enjoy it. And it's safe to say that it's one of the only dishes out there with the capacity to make you feel all warm and fuzzy inside.

National Lasagna Day is this Thursday, and thankfully, two local restaurants are making it easy to celebrate (and eat) with sweet deals especially made for the fun foodie holiday.

Enter Brio Tuscan Grille and Buca di Beppo.

At Brio Tuscan Grille, enjoy half priced lasagna all day.

Originally priced at $17.25, it's a steal at a mere $8.63. According to

our sources, reservations for Lasagna Day are highly recommended.
