    Default Lasagne question

    Do you put the pasta sheets into the dish first and start layering from there, or do you start off with the mince first?

    Thanks

    I put sheets first cause it makes it easier to serve!!

    Yes this is what i normally do, for that exact reason

    How do you keep the bottom sheets from going crispy/hard? Sometimes the bottom ones are soft but other times they don't cook properly and harden instead.

    I put a couple of teaspoons of water in the bottom to keep them moist and they don't stick to the bottom either that way!!

    I usually put a layer of sauce first then pasta as this helps it to stop sticking to the bottom. Works for me!

    I always put the sheets down first...I havent had a problem with the hardening, maybe because I make my sauce just a smidge runnier..

    Thanks so much ladies

    Sounds like I need to try out a few different methods. Since it doesn't happen all the time, it might be that those times it doesn't happen my sauce is runnier... I will try making it a tad moister today and see if that helps.

    Thanks again

    I put the mince down first also - but only a little bit - enought to cover the bottom thinly - stops the sheets from sticking!

    I put a small amount of water in first then lasgana sheets.

    I then put mince and thin layer bechamel sauce and cheese and repeat with pasta etc.

    On top of top pasta i put a thick layer of bechamel sauce and coat in grated cheese!!

    Oh so yum and oh so not healthy!!

    I always put a bit of the mince down first, but not much. Just enough to slightly cover the bottom of the dish. Then the sheets don't stick.
    I made a curried tuna one the other night & it was great!!
