 What is Gender Reveal Lasagna?

A fantastic question. It all started in January. Pizza chain Villa Italia Kitchen posted their new creation on Instagram. It features a cheesy delight lasagna that when cut into, reveals blue or pink cheese between the pasta sheets. Someone orders the lasagna and the delighted parents to be cut into it to reveal and share the good news. Anyone who orders the dish and posts a video on Instagram is entered into a raffle to win a free catered meal.

Coming in at $169, the meal includes the Gender Reveal lasagna, garlic rolls, and salad. Undoubtedly, it’s pretty cool and it saves on you having to create a menu and a Gender Reveal as well.

Of course, the dish was a massive hit. And whilst it took its fair share of mocking on Twitter, it received 100 phone orders on the first day! Plus so many people looked it up on the restaurant website, that it crashed for an hour and a half.

Lasagna is super simple to make and deliciously yummy to eat.

The idea of Gender Reveal lasagna may seem complicated but it’s all about the cheese. A few drops of coloring in whipped cream cheese or a cheese sauce and voila! The cheats way of making lasagna is to use store-bought tomato sauce, or make a simple sauce with crushed tomatoes, milk, garlic powder and a drop of grated cheddar cheese.
