I like to soak no boil pasta noodles in water before layering them since it gives them a special taste. However the noodles like to stick to each other in whatever container i put them in. How do you prevent them?

    Do you mean texture or flavor @BarAkiva? I'm not sure how soaking them would change the taste of the end result, could you elaborate for my own curiosity?

  • Why not just get regular and soak them in hot water?

  • This might be a good use for one of those 'microwave bacon racks'. I'd also be one to try putting a little bit of rice in between layers so they can't make complete contact, and it could be scraped off.

Layer them between wax paper, parchment paper or microwave cling film.

    An edit and an upvote. ;-) Microwave cling film is perforated and will allow the water to reach the lasagne whereas normal cling film will prevent the water from reaching them. Feel free to roll back: no offence taken! 0:-)

  • @Fabby I am in the United States and have never seen or heard of perforated cling film for microwaves. It is not sold in either of the two supermarket chains in our county/area.

    Well.. The only advice I have for you is not to use any cling film in the microwave then. Here is what I'm talking about. You can ping me in chat

  • @Fabby The OP doesn't mention heating the lasagna noodles (microwave or otherwise), just soaking them.
