The most popular recipe on the InternetSeptember 12, 2013 by Lindsay
Unlike television shows or books, it’s hard to gauge the popularity of things on the internet because of the sheer volume – how do you compare? But there are indications – Twitter has Followers, Facebook has Likes, and recipes have views and ratings. And by those indications, The Washington Post has dubbed this lasagna recipe on AllRecipes.com – with over 7,000 reviews, 10,000 ratings, and 12,000 million views – the single most popular English-language internet recipe.
The recipe, modestly titled The World’s Best Lasagna, was posted in 2001 by a home cook who has only posted one other recipe on AllRecipes. The recipe itself is a classic lasagna, with 20 ingredients, and built around an Italian sausage long-simmered meat sauce. And it’s not quick – it will take about 3 hours start to finish.
Of course, if you’d like to try something different – less traditional or with different ingredients – the EYB library has over 369 online versions for lasagnas. And don’t forget the chianti.
