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).
