Celebrating a Diverse USA

This bolognese lasagne is from the instagram page of Linda Miller Nicholson. And here’s her caption for it:

“My favorite thing about the #USA is the diversity contained within her borders. A country founded by immigrants that has always been welcoming to the tired, the poor, the huddled masses yearning to breathe free. This year I celebrate the Native Americans whose land I grew the herbs in this dish on, the Mexicans, who provided much of the produce contained herein & who are the literal breaking backbone of this country whether you care to admit it or not, the Italians, who inspired this Bolognese lasagne, the Koreans, who taught me a secret ingredient in sauce never hurt anyone (yes, there‚Äôs kimchi in the Bolognese, sue me!), & the many cultures who represent the stars & stripes on top, whether in our military over the years helping to right injustices the world over, or on our melting pot of turf, sharing stories & recipes from homelands that converged to form the barrios of our major cities & the fabric of our agricultural lands.”
