    They are out there. But, I'm with you, I generally use them for lasagna. In fact, the photo above? From my own kitchen. And if you look closely, you can see the lasagna box is actually open. ;)

    •  You don't need to boil lasagna to make lasagna. (2+ / 0-)

      I have a recipe where you put the lasagna in as is, and the sauce cooks it while it's baking. I don't have it on the computer where I can copy and paste easily, but if you want it, I'll type it up for you.

      Note: Ronzoni doesn't make lasagna in Garden Delight, but they make regular lasagna.

      •  I agree. I never boil lasagna noodles. (1+ / 0-)

        All of the moisture in the vegetables, tomato sauce, etc. is more than enough to cook the noodles.

        The only caveat is to make sure to cover the top layer with a lot of tomato sauce so that it doesn't get crispy and chewy.

        •  Another trick (0+ / 0-)

          If you want to make the lasagna noodles more pliable without boiling them first, soak them in warm (not hot) water for 30 minutes or so. They'll absorb enough water to be flexible, and they won't absorb as much water out of the sauce.

        We never cooked Lasagna noodles at our house.  We cooked a very watery sauce lowered the temperature in the oven a bit and it came out perfect every time.  There are plenty of recopies set up that way.  One used to be on the Skinner Lasagna box.

      •  Assemble the lasagna and let it sit overnight. (0+ / 0-)

        That was Mom's trick she learned from someone - make the lasagna with the uncooked sheets, pour the sauce over everything...and leave the uncooked lasagna overnight in the fridge.

        The pasta absorbs moisture from the tomato sauce - and is tastier than the water-boiled stuff when you finally pop it in the oven!
