If you ever have trouble cooking your lasagna all the way through, maybe you should take a cooking class from chef Giancarlo Russo, part of a team that set the Guinness World Record this week for the world’s largest lasagna.
In honor of the Italian national soccer team staying in a hotel during Euro 2012 in Krakow, Poland, the executive chef from Trattoria Giancarlo decided to construct the 5.29-ton monstrosity. It took a whopping 10 hours to bake the feast to perfection, one section at a time.

When finished, the traditional Italian dish was sliced into 10,000 portions and served to locals, onlookers and soccer fans.
We’re not quite sure if the lasanga’s topping — featuring an abundance of carrots and peas but nary a sign of cheese — is typical Polish fare, but the Italian soccer team was too busy preparing to face Germany in the semifinals of Euro 2012 to test out the flavors.
