How to Use No-Boil Lasagne Noodles in a Regular Recipe

1. Figure out how many noodles you’ll need. (You may need to line them up in the pan to see how they’ll fit, then multiply them by the number of pasta layers you plan to use. Keep in mind that they’ll expand a little bit wider after soaking.)

2. Soak the noodles in plain water for at least 5 minutes, then layer them according to the recipe directions. It should take the same amount of time to cook.

So what happens if you don’t soak them?

1. Make sure your sauce is liquid enough, since the unsoaked noodles will draw water from it.

2. The cooking time is likely to be at least 10 minutes longer.

I don’t know what your energy bill is like, but ours is cringe-worthy, and as I write this, it’s summer temperatures outside… so I think I’ll just go ahead and soak mine. 🙂
