Tinkyada Lasagna Noodles

Do I need to precook like it says on the box? I have used deboles lasagna noodles and not precooked and just covered in aluminum foil for an hour and they turned out fine.

Thanks

I have made lasagna with Tinkyada and did not precook - it just takes a little longer - about 80 - 90 minutes.

If you can, avoid pre-cooking. They stick together horribly and fall apart. They still taste great, but it makes assembly quite the process.

I learned ALL NEW vocabulary words when my husband made lasagne with cooked rice noodles :rolleyes: Next time we're going with the extra time (His lasagne is always a little runny anyway, so this may help!)

Adding egg or egg replacer to the sauce helps eliminate the "runny" problem..

That's exactly the problem that I always have. Next time I'm not pre-cooking them.

If you pre-cook them for about half the time, they won't fall apart and they'll cook faster in the oven. Also - add some olive oil to the boiling water just before adding the lasagne noodles and they won't stick together.

Hey - when I make lasagna I put the noodles in a giant bowl of hot water - not boiling - with a splash of olive oil & let them sit until they are soft, works great for me!

I laid them flat on a cookie sheet and poured boiled water over them and let them sit for about 10 minutes. This made them plyable but not too wiggly. They cooked great in the recipe. Even the leftovers were divine! Not mushy at all.

I've always precooked them, and thrown them in a bowl - never had much of a problem with sticky/runny assuming I drain them when they're done like all pasta. A little bit of stick together, but no more than regular pasta and it wasn't too hard to get them apart. The only 'runniness' in my lasagna comes from the fresh tomatoes, spinach, and bell peppers. :)

    • Hi Beachgrl, It won't hurt anything to go gluten-free now, except the possibility of getting a diagnosis of celiac disease.  When i went gluten-free, it seemed like the initial changes were spread over about 6 weeks.  I had gut spasms for that time.  And other changes, all for the better.  Initial recovery from celiac damage can take up to 18 months, so it can be a slow thing.  Some people get better much faster of course, because we are all individuals and not identical. Going gluten-free for celiac disease is a lifetime commitment though, and some people have a hard time doing that without a diagnosis.  Even minor amounts of gluten can cause us to react, so it is best to eat a very simple diet of whole foods at first.  Avoid dairy and processed foods.  I hope it works out for you.  I know some people with Crohns disease eat gluten-free and find it helps them.  Gluten is a tough thing to digest for all people, but most don't have an immune reaction to it like celiacs do.  
    • Honestly, I would not trust the school to provide a gluten-free meal except for fruit, salads, veggies, etc. I sub in a school cafeteria and I swear everything is breaded or on bread. Utensils are shared. They're very clean but unless you have a very knowledgeable person in there, I just wouldn't chance it. I found a slim Jim type snack that says gluten-free on it. If you want to give me your email or FB account, I can send you some very valuable info on 504's though. They carry the student right through college. I kept a copy of what a friend wrote about her daughter being in a sorority and just how the 504 helped immensely. But, I would definitely get one and still be prepared to pack a lunch. All our meals are delivered frozen and we just hear them up. If your school actually fixes food, that's different. 
    • Oh, I would suggest providing gluten-free goodies (e.g. Candy) or even a frozen cupcake (kept in the teacher's freezer) in the event of a party.  My daughter's classmate is severely allergic to peanuts.  Her mom did that and Abby was never left out!  😊
    • Hi Nobody, Welcome to the forum!  I noticed you said you have been avoiding wheat products.  That's good, but are you avoiding rye and barley also?  Wheat, rye, and barley are the 3 grains that cause reactions in celiac patients.  About 10% also react to oats. If you haven't had the full celiac antibodies test panel, it might be worthwhile getting that done now.  The ttg is just a basic test and is generally followed up by an endoscopy or the full celiac panel. I wouldn't worry a lot about getting cancer.  That doesn't happen often. It is possible some of the other grains you might be eating are contaminated.  A group did a test on several off the shelf products a few years ago that would not normally be thought of as having gluten and found some actually did have low levels of gluten.  Things like corn meal for example.
