Can you use regular lasagna noodles without cooking them first?

No. This recipe doesn’t have enough liquid to make regular lasagna noodles soft while cooking. You’ll need to use oven ready, no bake noodles to ensure your lasagna noodles are soft and delicious

How long do no boil lasagna noodles take to cook?

Most recipes that use no boil lasagna noodles let the lasagna cook, in sauce, for at least half an hour. This yummy lasagna rollup recipe from Amandas Kitchen just dips the no boil noodles in water before rolling (but then bakes them in sauce for 40 minutes).

Do no boil lasagna noodles work?

Yes! Absolutely, we cook with no boil lasagna noodles all the time!

However, since no boil lasagna noodles are basically just regular noodles that have been cooked and dehydrated, you need to make sure that they’re cooked in a sauce that can add moisture back into them. They do need moisture, just less of it than regular lasagna noodles.

The trick is that you do need to let them bake in a sauce that has some liquid, for at least half an hour, like in this vegetable lasagna with no cook noodles.
