Recipe: Vigan Longganisa Lasagna, pasta with a Pinoy twist

MANILA, Philippines — Lasagna is among the Italian pasta dishes that Filipinos love.

Well, you can love it even more by injecting a Pinoy twist into it. Why not use Vigan longganisa instead of the usual ground beef (or pork!) in your lasagna? Yes, it can be done and it works!

Hunt’s Tomato and Spaghetti Sauces, which offer products that are made from all-natural, vine-ripened tomatoes, shares its recipe for lasagna with a twist.
