Lasagna Prep Pointers

To keep lasagna from becoming soupy, be certain to drain the noodles well and pat them dry. Use a thick tomato sauce. Add a beaten egg to the ricotta or cottage cheese filling to help bind it together. Saute and drain well any vegetables such as mushrooms or zucchini that may add extra liquid. Be sure to let baked lasagna stand for 15 minutes before cutting. Another option is to try no-boil lasagna noodles, which absorb extra moisture while cooking. They can be found in the pasta section of most grocery stores.
