We Gained Five Pounds Just Looking At This Lasagna Sandwich

In case lasagna, with its layers of pasta and cheese, isn’t fattening enough for you, a grocery store chain in the UK has introduced something that might be right up your carbo-loading alley — a pre-made lasagna sandwich.

Unfortunately, because no one in England apparently has any idea what lasagna is, consumers get “two thick slices of bread and a filling of diced beef in a tomato and herb sauce layered with cooked pasta sheets and a creamy cheddar, ricotta and mayonnaise dressing.”

Sounds yummy.

And even though one sandwich is 565 calories, Tesco, the grocery chain that sells them for around $3.50 says:

We think the lasagna sandwich could become the food of choice for anyone wanting a solid snack between meals… The lasagna sandwich is something which we hope people will see as an occasional treat in the same way that people will sometimes treat themselves to a burger or a curry

What do you think? Is this something you would chow down on?
