An Australian bakery has launched a limited-edition lasagne pie in stores across the country.
The filling is made from layers of pasta sandwiched between Australian beef and lashings of tomato, garlic and cheese, all encased in a flaky pastry shell.
The pie – which is part of the bakery’s signature range – is available for $7.95 online via Uber Eats and in stores nationwide for a ‘limited time only’, so you’d better move fast.

Banjo’s Bakery CEO, Jessica Saxby, said the pie was created to give Australians unable to travel overseas this year a taste of Italy on home soil.
‘We’re committed to providing our customers with unique culinary experiences through fresh, daily baked goods that leave Australians happy and satisfied,’ Mrs Saxby said.
‘Our diners are often on-the-go, so it made sense to develop a pasta-filled pocket and ‘Signature Pie’ flavour that was easy to enjoy on the run at lunch time, on the side-line of Saturday sport, at your next family picnic and anywhere in between.’
The Italian classic follows in the footsteps of Banjo’s wildly cheeseburger pie, which sold in record numbers when it launched in September 2020.

Photos of the cheeseburger pie drew delighted responses on social media, with comments including ‘looks awesome’, ‘wow I need to try this’ and ‘sounds good’.
‘Oh my God, this is Maccas in a pie,’ one woman said.
‘Thought I’d try one of these at Banjo’s Lindisfarne yesterday. A unique experience for sure! Somehow I don’t think it’ll be my last,’ said a second.
The unique treat even caught the attention of pie lovers overseas, with many begging the cafe chain to expand into America.
‘You need to open stores in the USA! Especially Las Vegas, Nevada! This looks so good,’ one man wrote on Banjo’s Instagram account.
