It’s an official World Record Attempt

The Guinness Book of World Records TM has received our application and contacted our restaurant to inform us that our attempt at a World Record is now an official Guinness World Record Attempt.

We owe many thanks to Ben Wexler with the Susan G. Komen staff for assisting us with contacting Guinness.  It wasn’t an easy task.  Although once contacted, the Guinness staff has been extremely helpful and timely.

On race day, we will have officials assigned to weighing, measuring, counting, and verifying our World Record Attempt.  Our completed application will be reviewed and we will hear in the next few weeks if our Lasagna will be qualified as an official Guinness World Record TM.

Time flies when you’re having fun…

Let’s try to catch everyone up….Sunday night deliver brought us:

Just wait…the really really fun part is coming…

Someone forgot to put the 1,284 pounds of Lasagna Noodles on the truck.  It wasn’t the drivers fault…in fact, I told him I’d put his picture on this site so he could show his family.  Give me another day or two and I’ll get those pictures online.  Well the fine folks at Sygma stepped up to the plate ( or in this case the lasagna pan ) and got us our Lasagna Noodles the next evening. 

Many thanks to Zerega for your donation of the Lasagna Noodles.

We owe so much thanks to all of the sponsors of our World’s Largest Lasagna…together we intend to raise an incredible amount of money for the Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure.

Buy it on EBAY

The World’s Largest Lasagna Ebay Auction has officially begun. Check it out here.

One lucky Ebay bidder will have the opportunity to purchase The World’s Largest Lasagna. It’s anyone’s guess whether they’ll decide to purchase one slice ($3) or the entire 35′ x 35′ lasagna ($28,800). We personally think this is a great opportunity for an individual or company to donate to the Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure and take part in ownership of a World Record Lasagna.

I encourage everyone to check out our Ebay Auction and help raise the current bid. Remember 100% of our online auction will be donated to the Race for the Cure! Good Luck and Happy Bidding!

Freedom Middle School

Today I spent another day teaching students from Freedom Middle School how to prepare lasagna.  Overall the students seemed excited and intrigued about the World’s Largest Lasagna.  I was a little caught off guard by some of the random questions.  Here are some examples:

  • “Why are you wearing a bowtie and suspenders?”
  • “Why are you letting people eat the lasagna?  Shouldn’t you put it in a musuem and preserve it?”
  • “What if I build a lasagna bigger then yours next year?”
  • “Do you think that you’ll be crazy by the time you’re done making all of that lasagna?”

After a two hour class, twenty more students are now officially ready to prepare our Incredible 15 Layer Lasagna.  I’ll be sure to bring my dyson vacuum cleaner…this is gonna be a messy bunch!

Have you seen the HUGE lasagna in the lobby at The Spaghetti Warehouse?

11\' x 10\' Photo of our Incredible 15 Layer LasagnaWalk through the front doors of The Spaghetti Warehouse at 26th & Smallman Streets in Pittsburgh and you’ll know they’re serious about the World’s Largest Lasagna.

Guests are instantly amazed by the 10′ tall and 11′ wide lasagna photo in the lobby.  We encourage everyone to step back and imagine what our World Record Lasagna will look like.  Imagine 35′ x 35′.  Breath taking, unimaginable, and once in a lifetime.
