  • I use oven ready pasta noodles that you don't have to boil and they work great! It takes a lot of the work out of making lasagna

  • you don't have to boil them, but bake it 15-20 minutes longer, lower the temp 25 degrees & add 1/4 cup of water to the sauce & cover with tin foil.

  • You have to buy the oven ready noodles. If you use the standard noodles it will not come out right. The recipe is right on the box of the noodles and it works great (c:

  • you don't HAVE to by the oven ready noodles. I make lasagna with regular lasagna noodles just like my grandma did. They are not "oven ready" & i never boil them. Comes out perfect every time. I don't like the size or shape of the oven ready noodles. i prefer to use the regular kind.
