Barely cook them then put them in the lasagna. You can NOT cook wheat noodles and tgey will be fine after the lasagna bakes but I don't know about rice.

I actually don't cook them at all, just make sure that there is enough sauce so the noodles don't dry out.

I have had good success with not cooking the noodles and adding about 1/2 cup of water to the sauce. I also cover the lasagna for most of the cooking.

Please let us know which suggestion you used and how it came out. This being my first Christmas gluten-free I'm using Stuffed Shells from a local Pasta store. I've enjoyed there Ravioli and gnocchi, hope the shells are as good. Happy Holidays.

Lasagna was always our Christmas eve dinner. This is my first year gluten-free. I bought Tinkyada lasagna noodles, but I'm afraid of how the lasgna will turn out. My gluten eating family will be very disappointed if it's anything like the DeBoles pasta I served recently.

Please post how yours goes? I'm thinking about skipping it this year rather than serve something sub-par.

I made "traditional" lasagna using Tinkyada noodles and no one knew the the difference.

I read somewhere on the forum that corn pasta is a mess in lasagna. For spaghetti I use corn/quinoa and everyone likes it.

When I made lasagna with the Tinkyada noodles, I did not cook them first and just made sure that every inch of noodle was covered by sauce. I cooked it for about 45 minutes (which is how long I cooked my gluten filled lasagna) and it turned out perfect. I think I may make it myself for Christmas eve since the dinner is usually fish which my daughters and I have never liked and it has to be meatless or my grandmother would probably be very unhappy. I hope that yours turns out well.

I'm starting to feel a little braver. The package says to pre-boil the noodles. Maybe if I cook them for a couple of minutes(but not the full amount of time) it will remove the extra starch?

I know I should have experimented before now so such an important meal wouldn't be so scary? :(

Don't be afraid to try them ---- It will not be a disaster. I have made Lasagne with the Tinkyada noodles before, but I thought they were too soft for my liking, although the other people eating the lasagna did not seem to notice. I did precook those noodles as directed on the bag at that time.

But this time, I am NOT going to cook them beforehand--

Enjoy your lasagna ! :)

I was fretting. Hubby suggested a pork roast with carmelized onions and pan roasted potatoes. It's something I've made for years, so it wouldn't add to my stress level.

This may sound silly..but thinking I had something figured out and then having something else suggested has the opposite effect from relieving the stress! :blink:

Undercook the noodles quite a bit, and what has worked for me in the past is to carefully remove them one at a time from the pot by draping a noodle over a wooden spoon, rinsing it under cold running water, then setting it in a colander to drain as I rinse the others. This is pretty labor-intensive, and if you cook them too long, they still fall apart. Last time I just dumped them into the strainer all at once, and that was not successful. I had to construct my lasagna with noodle puzzle pieces, once I got them peeled apart. I'd recommend the no-cook method. I haven't tried it, but I'm going to next time.

Thanks for sharing those tips! In the past when I was using gluten noodles occasionally I'd tear a noodle or two and have to piece them back together. I can't imagine having to do all of them!

I guess one of the things that had me thinking I'd have to pre-boil is the fact that the noodles get bigger as they cook? I usually put a bit of sauce in the bottom of the dish, then a layer of noodles, a bit more sauce, noodles, then a layer of ricotta or cottage cheese mixed with an egg, then repeat the noodle/sauce until I run out of noodles. I was thinking the cheese layer might not work out and be where it should if the noodles change size?
