To-die-for Nutella lasagna is the answer to my prayers
Is Nutelasagna your dream come true too, or does it sound kinda ick? I am in love.
It's the snack time witching hour, and I was already craving something to satisfy my insatiable sweet tooth when I came face-to-face with my perfect match. Nutelasagna, where the heckfire have you been all my life?
Normally I roll my eyes whenever I read about another over-the-top food mashup. Remember bacon chocolate and ice cream? Ew. The Cronut? Please (though I was mildly impressed by the sensation it caused). Pizza cake? OK, that does look sorta delish.

But this one, Nutelasagna, is different, I can tell. First, the description by creator Robicelli's Bakery in Brooklyn got me all hot and bothered. "It's layers of buttery lasagna noodles, cannoli custard, copious amounts of Nutella, crushed roasted hazelnuts, and chopped chocolate, with some marshmallows on top for additional sweetness," owner Allison Robicelli told Gothamist. Dear God, help me. Help us all.
But then I saw it, not quite across a crowded room, but give me time. I took one look at the picture, and my heart was aflutter. And I could drive there to see it in person!
My sweet soul mate (too soon?) is being sold on Robicelli's website by the half tray or full tray for $65 and $120, respectively, and is apparently flying off the bakery's shelves this holiday season. Online dating is great and all, but we really need to meet — which is the only way to try a single serving anyway. Brooklyn, here I come.
