'Unsticky' Lasagna Noodles
It really irritates me when I'm making lasagna and the noodles stick together and tear when I try to pull them apart. I finally found a simple way to prevent this from happening.
Boil your noodles until they are almost done, I think they call it al dente. Drain off the water and rinse with cold water. Fill a baking dish, like the one in the picture, half full with cold water. Add the noodles one at a time and set aside until you're ready to use. Make sure the water covers the final layer of noodles.
This works great. I was able to pick up each noodle from the pan and place them in the baking dish without tearing even one! That is a 1st for me. You may have your own way of accomplishing this little task but this one works for me.
