Anything airtight is fine. If the sheets will fit in a Ziploc, that would be perfect. Another option that would certainly be big enough is a bread bag, well sealed. If you still have the box the pasta came in, you can put the bag inside the box to give the pasta a small measure of protection against breakage. I checked with Still Tasty and they didn't have ...

In Italy, when we refer to Pasticcio we are usually referring to other kind of pasta rather than the lasagna noodle. As almost the totally of the italian dishes obviously this differ from the part of Italy you're referring, and so the ingredients could change. The classic lasagna is made with rag├╣ and besciamella, as the pasticcio, but I simply love the ...

Stack them, like this: Rotate them 1/3 and 2/3 the way through cooking, figuring perhaps 25% longer cooking time than each would call for separately. Use an instant read thermometer, look for about 165F (74C). Also look for a bit of browning and bubbliness. It may be that they won't be done at exactly the same time, but they'll be close enough that they ...

Here is the link to that recipe. ...

When I make lasagne to put in the freezer, I do not bake it first. For me, the best way to freeze it is using a sheet of Glad's Press-N-Seal over the top of the lasagna, pressing down to get all the air out if you can, between the top layer (sauce/cheese) and your press-n-seal. You want more or less a vacuum seal (the cheap way). I seal my press-n-seal to ...

Once again I will bring up America's Test Kitchen (AKA Cook's Illustrated). They like the no-boil sheets, but they have experienced some of the same problems already brought up here. To ameliorate those issues, they recommend soaking the sheets for 10 minutes in hot tap water before use. I've done it, it works great.
