Build a Better Lasagna

Didn't think a classic lasagna could be improved upon? Here's a new way to assemble your lasagnas that help hold their shape better and give more structure to the pasta dish.


First, arrange a row of pasta “east to west” in the pan, add fillings, then lay the next layer of pasta “north to south,” and so on. By alternating the layers like this, the pieces hold their shape better and don’t ooze so much.
