A Lasagna Made With Gold

Proving the old theory that any comfort food can be improved upon with the addition of precious metals, this Las Vegas resort created a lasagna made with gold.

Garfield, in all of his infinite wisdom, sure does love lasagna. He's also pretty greedy. It would stand to reason that America's favorite fat cat would be all over a delicious lasagna that also happened to be packed to the gills with precious metals. Well, if you happen to know Jim Davis, send him a link to this crazy pasta dish a Las Vegas casino just concocted.

The famous Mirage Hotel and Casino, which sits right on the Las Vegas strip, just unveiled the appropriately named Diamond and Gold Lasagna. This modest meal features layers of Kobe beef, Iberico ham, prosciutto di Parma, Parmigiano-Riggiano, buffalo mozzarella, porcini mushrooms and foie gras Alfredo sauce. That would be decadent enough on its own, but there's also white-diamond truffles and 23-karat gold leaf. Maybe you can eat enough gold to make up for the life savings you puttered away at the craps table.

If having the pasta-equivalent of an engagement ring floating around your innards sounds appetizing, you can buy this ornate lasagna for $100.
