How do I make lasagna without boiling the noodles?

You can make lasagna without boiling the noodles by using no-boil lasagna noodles. No-boil noodles are specially designed to be used directly in the lasagna without the need for pre-boiling. Here's how you can make lasagna without boiling the noodles:


  • No-boil lasagna noodles
  • Tomato sauce or meat sauce
  • Cheese (such as shredded mozzarella, ricotta, and grated Parmesan)
  • Fillings of your choice (such as sautéed vegetables, cooked meat, or spinach)


  • Preheat your oven to the temperature specified in your lasagna recipe.
  • Choose a baking dish: Select an appropriate baking dish for your lasagna. It should be deep enough to accommodate multiple layers of noodles and fillings.
  • Layer the lasagna: Start by spreading a thin layer of sauce at the bottom of the baking dish. Place a single layer of no-boil lasagna noodles on top of the sauce. The noodles will expand as they cook, so leave a small gap between them.
  • Add sauce and cheese: Spread a layer of sauce over the noodles, followed by a sprinkling of cheese and any desired fillings. Repeat the layering process with another layer of noodles, sauce, cheese, and fillings. Continue layering until you use up all the ingredients, ending with a layer of sauce and cheese on top.
  • Cover and bake: Cover the baking dish with foil, ensuring it's tightly sealed. This helps trap steam and moisture, ensuring the noodles cook properly. Place the dish in the preheated oven.
  • Bake according to the recipe: Follow the recipe instructions for baking times and temperatures. No-boil lasagna noodles typically require a longer baking time compared to regular noodles since they absorb moisture from the sauce during cooking.
  • Remove the foil: During the final portion of the baking time, remove the foil to allow the cheese to melt and develop a golden-brown crust on top.
  • Rest before serving: Once the lasagna is cooked, let it rest for a few minutes before serving. This allows the layers to set and makes it easier to slice and serve.
