Woman sues over burning hot lasagne

A WOMAN in Illinois is suing a local restaurant over their lasagne, which she claims scalded her left hand.

Theresa Thomas is seeking AU$65,000 plus lawyer fees from Osteria Ottimo Ristorante in Orland Park.

According to the lawsuit, Thomas was served an impossibly hot lasagne by the eatery, and when she touched it with her fork, "without warning, piping hot marinara sauce shot from the lasagne and onto Theresa's left hand, scalding the skin and causing a large burn."

A woman wants $50k from the restaurant that cooked her lasagne.

The Chicago Tribune reports that the lawsuit alleges Osteria Ottimo Ristorante was "careless and negligent in preparing unreasonably hot and/or dangerous food, serving such food, failing to cool the food, failing to train staff members to serve cooler food, and failing to warn Thomas and others that their food was hot or dangerous."

The woman was served lasagne and the scalding sauce burnt her hand.
