I always buy the no boil noodles to make my lasagna. It is so much faster especially when I am in a rush to get dinner on the table. Well, I had my daughter fix it for us one night, only when she got the noodles at the store, she bought the boil kind. I had told her she didn't have to cook the noodles - thinking she would get the right kind. Well, needless to say that when we ate the lasagna the noodles were still a little crunchy since they hadn't been boiled first. We still ate it.

Yikes!   I never had crunchy lasagna.  I hope they softened up more for the next time.

I always use the regular lasagne noodles and I don't boil them either.  I put in extra liquid.  My sauce is pretty juicy and it is absorbed by the noodles.  I usually let it rest for 20-30 minutes before serving.

I put extra liquid in too so that I don't have to boil them.

I always buy the regular lasagna noodles and just add a little extra sauce and it always comes out great.

I haven't made lasagna in a long while either, but when I did I usually parboiled the noodles. When my sons were in high school I made lasagna at least once a month. They were in competitive swimming and needed lots of carbs!

I too buy the regular noodles and never parboil them. I just make my sauce a little thinner than normal and it cooks the noodles just fine.
