Healthy Cooking Tip

For convenience, Quick & Easy One-Step Spinach Lasagna uses no-boil lasagna noodles that are pre-cooked and then dehydrated at the pasta factory. Recipes that call for pre-cooked noodles are specially developed to include enough liquid to surround and rehydrate the noodles, either by calling for more tomato sauce or for water in addition to the sauce.The convenience of no-boil lasagna noodles is twofold: You get to skip the separate step of cooking pasta, and the rigidity of the noodles makes it easier to assemble the layers. Also, there are no “puddles” at the bottom of the lasagna dish when you use pre-cooked noodles, because the noodles soak up the added liquid.
