How to Cook Lasagne Noodles the Easy Way

Lasagne noodles have to be the most cumbersome dried pasta to cook.  Stirring them in an extremely large stock pot to keep them from clumping together is almost impossible without one or two tearing.  I know there are no boil pasta sheets, but I prefer the texture of  dried lasagna noodle. I am sure fresher is better, but...I won't go there quite yet. 

So, If one normally puts the lasagna in the boiling water, why not put the boiling water OVER the lasagna?? Let's just say it works and it is the only way I use to par cook those large noodles.

*Note-- Is it lasagnA or lasagnE? Both are acceptable, but after a little research, lasagnA is one single noodle and lasagnE plural. I won't mark either wrong on your recipe card if you won't mark it wrong on mine­čśť.

How to Cook Lasagne Noodles the Easy Way

In a large roasting pan, overlap the amount of lasagne noodles in a perpendicular way to keep from sticking together.

Bring a large kettle or stock pot filled with water to a boil.  Pour the boiling over the lasagne noodles and let them soak for 20 minutes until al dente.  Remove the noodles and lay them next to each other over a clean dish towel.  Use them as needed with the recipe.
