Chow Italia: Lasagna at VinciTorio's and Humble Pie

For some, the ultimate comfort food is fried chicken. For others, it's meatloaf. For me, it's lasagna -- a thick, saucy, cheesy slab of Italian heaven. Of course it has to be homemade with Italian sausage like the lasagna I feasted on every holiday season growing up with Italian friends and relatives. Anything out of a box or filled with carrots and zucchini is a travesty.

This week, two hungry Americans went in search of lasagna that would transport our taste buds back to holidays gone by.

The first stop: VinciTorio's
1835 E. Elliott Rd, Ste. 108 in Tempe
