How long do I bake lasagna with uncooked noodles?
For top layer, 4 uncooked lasagna noodles, remaining sauce, and remaining 1 cup mozzarella. Bake covered with foil for 50-60 minutes. Uncover and continue cooking until all the cheese is melted on the top (about 5 minutes). If you are using a 13X9X2 pan---just make 3 layers to avoid boiling over.
Soak the lasagne sheets in a single layer in boiling water for 5 mins. (Although the packet says no pre-cook, I find soaking improves the texture.) Drain well. Heat oven to 200C/fan 180C/gas 6.
- Spread the remaining sauce over the top layer of noodles and sprinkle with the remaining Mozzarella cheese. 7 Bake: Tent the lasagna pan with aluminum foil (not touching noodles or sauce). Bake at 375°F for 45 minutes. Allow to cool before serving.
- Start by spreading a layer of your tomato-based sauce (either a plain tomato sauce or your pre-made ragù) on the bottom of your dish. Next, add a single layer of pasta sheets. Then, add a layer of white sauce, followed by another single layer of pasta sheets.
- Repeat that process for each additional layer, until you've used all your noodles. Pour boiling water over the noodles, and let them soak for 20 to 30 minutes. If your tap water is very hot, 160 to 180 degrees Fahrenheit, you can use water from your faucet instead of boiling water.
Some people swear you can use regular lasagna noodles without boiling them first. This works as long as they get extra moisture during cooking just like the no-boil noodles (either by soaking before assembling or using a watery sauce, and covering the dish).

To avoid mushy baked pasta, seriously undercook the pasta in its boiling phase. Perry lets the pasta boil for just five minutes before draining it well and tossing it in the sauce. Because the pasta's going into a hot sauce in a hot oven, it'll continue to cook long after it's been drained.
- Place the lid back on the pot to help bring the water back to a boil. This is an essential moment, because if you don't, the pasta will be sitting in hot water, resulting in mushy pasta. 4. Once the pot is boiling again, remove the lid for the remaining cook time to prevent the pasta from boiling over.
