Hail the all-new lasagne-wich!

lasgane sandwich Hail the all new lasagne wich!More skank-hot news from the sandwich technology sector for you now. Yesterday we brought you the revelatory Candwich – the sandwich in a can that is said to be hitting the shops later in the year.

But on the meantime, here’s one that has hit the shops NOW – the lasagne sandwich from good old Tesco. Looking about as appetising as an average carpet after the dog has dragged its arse across it, it’s basically cold lasagne pasted in between two pieces of bread.

The actual description of it makes it sound slightly more exotic however – Tesco say it’s ‘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’. Yeah, right – nice work with the words there.

Tesco food developer and sandwich creator Laura Fagan parped off about the monstrous invention, saying: ‘We think the lasagne sandwich could become the food of choice for anyone wanting a solid snack between meals. The inspiration comes from my own student days and how certain foods could sometimes taste much better the next day – such as pizza, lasagne and even curry.’

Thing is though, when we were students we used to monk one out over Carol Vordeman every afternoon, but it doesn’t mean you keep doing it when you grow up (it’s Rachel Riley now).

    It looks utterly disgusting.

    By the time countdown is on TV I’ve already exhausted my daily supply on all these sexy breakfast TV presenters and newsreaders.

    If I’ve got any left after midday then I blow the last one watching Murder she Wrote.

    To me, it doesn’t seem that disgusting – would have to be stuck in the microwave though!

    Rachel Riley would get her back doors smashed in all day – only pausing to pop it in her mouth

    No wonder we are a nation of fat people.

    A 565 calorie “solid snack” between meals. Presumably that’d be meals of ryvita and celery.

    > Tesco food developer and sandwich creator Laura Fagan …. “how certain foods could sometimes taste much better the next day”

    That makes sense, when you consider some of Tesco brand “fresh” foods. They taste like they are days old. Which they are.

    > “the food of choice for anyone wanting a solid snack between meals”

    Most of my snacks are solid. I’ve not needed to move to liquid foods just yet. No doubt I will when my bodily functions go haywire.

    Haggis sandwich is quite nice (tried it) and this Lasagne jobbie looks tasty too! I’m being serious.

    It seems to be equivalent in fat and calories to two cheese burgers from McD’s. I’d prefer the cheeseburgers.

    tbh i think this does look quite appetising….but that is coming from a student haha

    Gonna check this one out one day!
