Lasagne...pre-cook noodles or ?

Tripper | Nov 6, 201106:20 AM

I have two packages of Barilla lasagne dried pasta noodles. One with the curly edges that you pre-cook...this is the one I have always used. One box you do not pre-cook. I want to try the ones you do not pre-cook and wonder if you have tips for ensuring success? I searched the board and one person suggested submerging in boiling water for a few seconds. One suggested adding extra water to the tomato sauce, covering with foil and baking...I don't like the sound of that idea.

If you have used these before please chime in with any suggestions for making sure this turns out. Or maybe I should just use the ones I am familiar with since I have friends coming for dinner and don't want the main part of the meal to not turn out well?

Thanks for you comments in advance!
