Im attempting my first homemade lasagna today. Does anyone have any advice to offer me?



And why does it call for a 13.9 inch pan but the noodles are more like 10 inches long? do I just put one on in the other direction to fill that?

what recipe are you using? The only advice I have is be careful when you are stirring the noodles not to break them.

yeah just put it in the other direction.



I dont what kind of advice to offer really. make sure each layer is coated evenly especially at the top so you dont have dry noodles from the baking. Other than that a lasagna is easy.

Yes you can just lay it in the other direction or some people break off pieces to line them up exactly with the others. I'm sure it will turn out great! :)

I do that...i will fill in the bottom with the noodles going the long length of the pan, and then I will break a noodle in half and turn it to fill in the empty space up top.

I tried lasagna for the first time 2 days ago. The recipe called for 1lb of meat and 1 28ox jar of sauce. Even spreading it thin, it wasn't enough. I suggest if your recipe calls for the same amount as mine did, use 1 1/2 lbs and another half jar of sauce, you'd rather have too much than not enough.

Noodles get bigger when u cook them. I make a meat sauce and put a thin layer on the bottom, put down 1 layer of noodles and thinly spread cottage cheese on the noodles, layer of sauce, noodles, sauce, whatever cheeses u like (I do mozzarella and chedder) repeat until u have enough layers...put a decent amount of sauce on top and cheese and bake :-)
