When you make lasagna do you boil the noodles before baking?

  • I do
    But, they do make noodles that you do not have to boil before baking. I don't like them as much, but a friend of mine swears by them.

  • Nope, I have a no boil recipe that adds water to the lasagna before baking it.

  • Yes, I do. I usually use Barilla brand no bake noodles for lasagna and it turns out just dandy!

  • Most of the time I do, but sometimes I feel lazy and get the noodles you don't have to boil. Both types are just as yummy to me.

  • Oops, that was a little confusing...I meant I do boil them when I use regular noodles!

  • Yes. On the box of noodles I always buy, there is a recipe on the back to make lasagna where you do not have to boil the noodles, but I've found that I think lasagna tastes better when you do boil the noodles first.

  • I boil mine, but its been so long since I've tried the no-boil kind that they may have improved their taste.

  • No. I don't, and you don't have to buy no bake noodles. You just rinse the regular ones right out of the package and make your sauce a little thinner than you normally would.
