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 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.
I have learned that pasta always needs to be cooke
I have learned that pasta always needs to be cooked for longer than the packet says. But this lasagne pasta is still hard and chewy no matter how long it is in the oven. I will try fresh pasta next time.
Needs way more than the recommended time in the ov
Needs way more than the recommended time in the oven - needs at least an hour on that heat otherwise the pasta is still hard....Glad I read this before serving up - it would've ruined an expensive meal!
Won’t be buying again
Awful. Take longer than the packet says to cook. Was in for 45 mins and still hard, not buying again.
Good enough for straightforward lasagne.
Hadn't bought it before, often make lasagne and thought I would try it as cheaper than its competitors. I wasn't disappointed.
Could be good for you
Great in lasagne.Can use without cooking first.Excellent price
No pre-cooking required!
Rare to find good lasagne needs which need no precooking but have done in this product. Sheets stay formed after being oven baked & you only need 2 layers to give a hearty meal. This makes the pack sufficient for more than one meal & good value
