Lasagna noodles

I am cooking some lasagna noodles for use tomorrow. How should I store them. I don't want them to soak up a bunch of the cooking liquid. Don't want them to stick together either.

why are you precooking them over all?
the only thing I could think of is tossing them in a little oil or not straining them fully so they are still coated with a little moisture.
However, I do recommend just cooking them as you need them.

Why not just cook them tomorrow?

...takes roughly 5 minutes once the water gets rolling

I never cook Lasagna noodles before is layer them. Make the Lasagna with dry noodles. If I think the sauce is not enough liquid I add two
tablespoons of water to the top and cover it with foil and bake.Works every time.

I do the same as Josie. The liquid must cover the noodles completely however. Those no "boil noodles" are lousy in my opinion.

If you have time, make homemade and don't boil. It's not hard and takes less time than pre boil'n the hard stuff. But, I have a pasta machine, hand crank, so take that for what it's worth........oh and a daughter that likes to help.
