Nothing but Noodular Perfection

If you've been riding along with us on our little culinary journey you might recall a certain obsession that was recently quenched with the acquisition of some new kitchen gear. You know the one...the culprit of the worlds most delicious brownies?

Well my friends, I'm here to share more success from our tiny kitchen and the result of this new acquisition. Behold! The perfect piece of lasagna:



No sunken center or too gummy edges, just plain noodle-y goodness all around. And straight from the pan this bad boy was perfectly browned on top and along all the edges (from the gobs of cheese of course!) and maintained its shape like a pro to boot!



So there you have it, yet another reason to invest in your kitchen. Besides, the results are more than worth the investment!

p.s. we're coming up on our 100th post and are so excited to celebrate. stay tuned for a fun contest to celebrate this milestone and the realization that i can, in fact, blabber for 100 days!

that lasagna looks fantastic! I bet it weighed a ton.

did you have to cut down the noodles to fit them in the pan?

do you pre-boil the noodles?

hello amandajean!

the lasagna was really great. you don't have to pre-boil the noodles, but i did for about 4 minutes just to guarantee that they were done and also b/c i didn't use a ton of tomato sauce (i prefer to use a little in the lasagna and then offer some on the side.

after i preboiled the noodles i cut them down to fit the size of the pan. once i cut one i used it as a reference for the others.

all and all it was a fun, easy, way to bake :)

thank you for reading and as always, happy eating!

You are having fun with that pan! Your well-behaved lasagne looks delicious as well as 'propre'!
