NO BOIL! Yep, this recipe uses dry lasagna noodles and the oven does 99% of the work! If I didn't have your attention, I do now! 

And let me add... These aren't the actual no boil variety. This recipe uses the regular every day kind-- and makes them into NO boil!

Just made lasagna today :) I bought no cook and regular cook noodles on my first time out and made two pans so that we could test them side by side. I would totally do no cook because they taste the same and they are way easier!!

I have made my lasagna this way, using traditional lasagna noodles, not no-boil noodles, for close to 20 years. It saves time, has better flavor and doesn't slide apart so much when serving!

I have used them before and I love them. When I make regular noodles they stick together.
