Lasagna is one of the few Italian recipes that has undergone minimal change over its extensive lifetime adorning menus worldwide, and rightly so. It has not been sullied by the hands of would-be chefs seeking to carve their name in culinary history by bastardizing a classic dish. Instead, lasagna has emerged as a survivor of American haute cuisine, its feathers virtually unruffled in the trend’s wake.

The cooks at LA Lasagna Co. stand by their namesake–and deliver. Lasagna is quite possibly one the of rare few dishes I care little about when critiquing originality, for lasagna in its entirely is as original as one can possibly hope to achieve. For the most part, lasagna is a simple enough dish– a combination of long strands of pasta, interwoven between layers of Romano, mozzarella, and ricotta cheese, meat and marinara sauce. LA Lasagna Co. itself is a quaint restaurant located on the corner of Reseda Boulevard and Chase Street.

Its decor (if you can call it that) is comprised of a smattering of tables and an ordering counter. That’s it, nothing else. They do serve other Italian classics, such as chicken alfredo and homemade meatball grinders, but lasagna is the go-to for first-timers. The lasagna combo, which includes lasagna, garlic bread and side salad with creamy Italian dressing, is a heck of a deal ringing in at just a shade under $10.
