Newsflash: heart-shaped pizzas and cookies are so 2014.

This year's hottest culinary trend, um, at least in the realm of heart-shaped foods, is the lasagna valentine. The engineer of this particular ingenuity is Buca di Beppo, which first created this novel entree for the wedding of former 'N Syncer Lance Bass and Michael Turchin.

Now this romantic treat is available to the masses this year from Friday, February 13 to Sunday, February 15 at Buca di Beppo locations nation-wide. The Valentine's lasagna ($48) easily feeds two (or three if polyamory is your thing) and comes with a Buca small mixed green or caesar salad, garlic bread and two mini cannoli. Reservations for this dish (which can be enjoyed as takeout or in-house) are recommended.

Homemade version is hard work and not the same.

Btw, for those of you ambitious homecooks that sniff at the idea of buying a heart-shaped lasagna and say, "Bah! I could easily make that myself." Well, this intrepid reporter tried (see picture) using Buca di Beppo's recipe and it tasted great but took three hours and by the time it was ready her Significant Other had passed out from hunger. Save yourself the trouble and let Buca do the cooking this holiday.
