Boil before backing
After reading other reviews, I thought it would be a good idea if I blanched these before putting them in the lasagne. It worked a treat! I put four sheets at a time into boiling water and timed them for three minutes. I followed the rest of the instructions according to the pack and they were perfect!
New lasagna = Rubbish
They used to be amazing, my favourite lasagna sheets however the recent times I have tried them they have been too thin and have come out too soggy. When comparing the boxes of a recently bought lasagna sheets with a slightly older one (the good one) I have noticed that the source/supplier has changed from Tuscany to Verona. For any potential customers, look at the back of the box, if the source is: *Tuscany = Good! :) *Verona = Bad :( Tesco please bring back the old lasagna sheets!!!
Cheevy, do not bother. Tried twice. No good.
Chevy after 40 mins cooking time. Tried twice and very chevy and horrible. Usual Barilla brand not in stock for five months at least. A great shame since the family loves lasagne but we will never buy them again.
After cooking for the recommended amount of time, they usually come out not fully cooked. I tried tweaking my recipe but no different. I used another brand and had no problems using exactly the same recipe.
do Not bother with these.
Awful awful awful Cooked with twice now, both time’s for 40 mins in a lasagne and both time’s came out hard and chewy the sheets are too thick and don’t cook well, dinner ruined twice. Will not buy again. Co op ones are cheaper and better quality and cooK in 30 mins. I’m very Disappointed By this Tesco’s.
Yes if you want really soft pasta it does require about 15 minutes longer but I like the texture of the pasta sheets being a little firm in my lasagne. I've tried the fresh and the dearest and there is no noticeable difference between any of them.
Takes a lot of cooking, hard and chewy otherwise
It takes a hell of a lot of cooking. To be transparent I usually buy Napillina or one of the other premium Italian brands as they are just better in my opinion. This Tesco stuff was hard even after oven baking in the usual way, I'm sure longer would have eventually cooked it. If you like a very wet and sloppy lasagne and are prepared to cook it to death then its fine, but not for me.
A couple comments are saying these pasta sheets ar
A couple comments are saying these pasta sheets are too hard and chewy when put in the oven, but you have to boil them in water before putting them in the oven then you get a soft lasagne sheet with crunchy edges.
Good value egg free pasta. Not all lasagne pastas are egg free.
