SOS HELP with Lasagna

HELP!!!
I have two pans of Lasagna that I put together yesterday, parked in the refrigerator until about an hour and a half before we serve.
The directions on the Barilla Lasagna Noodles box directs to cook the cold pan for 60 minutes, but then for the "just made up pan" it says to bake covered for 20 minutes and then top with the last layer of cheeses....
So with that said, would I still add that last layer of cheese at the last 10 minutes?

I've never cooked lasagna this way before... can ya tell?

Yup!

Depending an the size of the pan I would allow 90 minutes for baking the cold lasagna and 20-30 minutes to allow it time to rest before serving.

I put all the cheese on at the beginning and then cover the pan with foil bake it and remove the foil for the last 15 minutes to brown the cheese

Yep, this is exactly how I would bake it, too. I've always added all the ingredients at once, then take the top off the last 10 or 15 min for the cheese to brown. I'd probably take the lasagna out of the fridge for 30 minutes before putting it in the oven though, just to make sure the inside gets nice and hot before the outer edges get too crispy.

I agree with Bea. The difference is I add the last layer of cheese in the last 10-15 minutes.

Cheryl, that might be a good idea too!
Our guest just called to ask what he could bring,
and he got the ETA wrong, but I couldn't correct him, so....
QUICK! Come on DH, get dressed!

I always put cold lasagna in the oven when I turn it on, so they preheat together. And I also cover it with foil, with the cheese layer on top, till the last 15 minutes. It will happily wait while you make the garlic bread

BAHAHA! I just hope I have enough wine...
I wasn't sure what to get, so I have a bottle of white, a bottle of red
a six pack of regular as well as light beer... and DH doesn't drink; not sure what his buddy drinks, so... more for me
