wisdom of the crowd?!.....when you make lasagna....

......you don't need to precook the lasagna noodles......just soak them in hot tap water while you cook the other ingredients, about 30 minutes [ no need to buy 'no boil' lasagna noodles - you can use regular lasagna noodles ].......


....same goes for baked ziti or any baked pasta dish......

Do you add extra liquid?

Save water. Just soak it in bath water. Give quick rinse afterwards.

So the main difference between pasta dishes is the shape of the noodles. You could make lasagna with angel hair by layering it, or spaghetti with lasagna noodles. With the right spices and cheese, it would taste the same

Yeah, I know it isn't the same but still - why does Lasagna cost $15 a slice at a restaurant while baked spaghetti is $4.99?

It is like Taco Bell - the same ingredients on different shaped tortillas for different prices. A brilliant marketing scheme.

A whole lot more time and effort goes into the creation of a lasagna than in a plate of spaghetti.

I still prefer the no-bake noodles as much easier to handle.

Lasagna is way different from spaghetti. It uses various cheeses, sauces and herbs to create a textured deliciousness that is not present in spaghetti. Also, if you're going to a restaurant that sells spaghetti for $4.99, you are unlikely to get something worthy of the name "spaghetti".



"In science it often happens that scientists say, 'You know that's a really good argument; my position is mistaken,' and then they would actually change their minds and you never hear that old view from them again. They really do it. It doesn't happen as often as it should, because scientists are human and change is sometimes painful. But it happens every day. I cannot recall the last time something like that happened in politics or religion." (1987) -- Carl Sagan

Now for the big question: Do you prefer your lasagna to be constructed from the bottom sauce, noodles, cheese mixture, noodles, sauce,,, so that the cheese mixture and the sauce stay (mostly) separate until they're in your mouth as do I, or do you prefer sauce, noodles, cheese mixture, sauce, noodles,,, where the cheese mixture and the sauce combine and dilute each other's flavor during assembly?

No. To use your analogy, you are comparing a taco to an enchilada or chile relleno. Two completely different dishes that use similar ingredients.

I never soak the noodles. Can be a bit al dente if I didn't buy the oven-ready, but no one's ever complained.

I always make the bottom layer noodles, but after that I lose track and end up with all the mozzarella on top.

Sauce mingles with cheese--better flavor that way.
