Homemade lasagna noodles recipes FAQ

We've gathered some quick answers to common questions first-time noodle makers have. Read on to make sure your lasagna noodles come out flawlessly.

How thick should homemade lasagna noodles be?

The great thing about homemade lasagna noodles is that you can roll them as thin or as thick as you like. Of course if they are too thick, the noodles won't cook properly when the lasagna is baking!

We recommend trying to size your noodles to around 1/16 of an inch thick and approximately 3 inches across in width.

How long do I need to cook lasagna noodles?

Lasagna noodles do not take long to cook. As we already mentioned in the instructions, you only want to boil them for 30 seconds. Any longer than this and the noodles will become too soft, which means they could turn to mush later on when they are baking (remember that you will cook the pasta sheets later on as part of the lasagna!).

Can I prepare homemade lasagna noodles ahead of time?

Homemade pasta will stay fresh for at least 24 hours, so you can make it the day before or in the morning if you're tight on time in the evenings. Just leave it in the fridge once you've cooked the sheets and left them to cool down.

Alternatively, if you're not going to bake a lasagna for a while, you could dry the pasta sheets out. The best way to do this is to leave them to hang on a pasta drying rack (if you have one) overnight. If you don't have a drying rack, then you can either leave them on parchment paper or place the sheets into a resealable, airtight container to dry them out quicker.

Dried pasta will keep in the cupboard for months. When it's time to cook with them, you'll need to boil them in water for a few minutes (rather than a quick 30 seconds) before you can then layer up your lasagna and start baking.

You could also freeze your fresh pasta right after it's cooled down. Freezing will keep pasta fresh as long as you keep the sheets in a ziplock bag or resealable container.
