Same here, I cook mine in a disposable foil lasagna pan for 30 minutes covered. then remove the foil, add an additional lb. of shredded mozzerella on top of the naked lasagna and cook for about 10 minutes.

All great input. Here is mine: Cook your pasta al dente. Use a stainless steel pan. Place little tomato sauce between layers And make alternate layers of the ricotta mix on one and a cheese layer following. This will give you most of the cheese within the lasagna.

The top layer "little cheese". Cover with release foil. And cook for 50 minutes covered. Remove the release foil and let the top layer of cheese melt. Let stand before cutting. If there are any leftovers.....cut into individual servings and wrap in plastic wrap and then place in freezer. Remove plastic wrap, place on a plate cover and heat (this will take about 10 minutes). I have a large plastic cover I use. After the time alloted (depending on size of serving) test with a fork in the center). A little warmed sauce and it tastes like you just made it.

They make special pasta that does Not need to be boiled. Ordinary pasta
Does need boiling. The pasta package will give EXCELLENT directions.

Do you know the difference between regular pasta and no boil pasta?
The price

Barilla makes a good one. Look on the package for words like "No Boil" -- they should be prominent. If they don't say it, you have to boil.

Nope, both macaroni are the same. Only difference in the two are the price. Whether youre cooking baked ziti or lasagna there is no need to boil the pasta first. I guess they figure that as long as there's someone willing to pay more for the box that says "No Boil" there's money to be made $$$$$

Hmmm. I stand corrected. The only time I tried it I wound up with rubber in the middle and edges so crunchy they'd break your teeth. But I only make lasagna every few years, so .... haven't perfected it.
