Lasagna from FC #44

Anu's picture

I noticed the instructions say to make 3 lasagnas in 9 inch or 8 inch square pans.  How does this recipe work if you just want to make a regular size lasagna in a 9x13 pan? 


thanks,


Anu

I havena't checked the recipe, but it would seem that if you halved the ingredients, you could use a 9 x 13 pan.

Hi Anu,

I've made this lasagne recipe three times in a regular 9 x 13 pyrex pan, and it has been fine.

It is amazing, by the way.

I made it last night and got a very full 9x13 pan and a 8x8 pan out of it.  I think I need a 9x13 with taller sides instead of the old pyrex thingie.   I'll freeze the small pan for later and have the larger pan for dinner tonight.  Lasagna is supposedly better the second day.


thanks for everyone's help. 


cheers,


Anu

EXACTLY!  They are just not deep enough and even most "lasagna" dishes that are advertised as such are the same depth. For my veggie lasagna recipe (which I make more often than meat lasagnas) I use a foil pan for the depth.

BUT NOW, I have it covered.  I finally realized that I do have a deep pan in my cupboard, right after I ordered a stainless roasting pan (for not much) and resisted getting a LC pottery lasagna pan at Costco (which is really nice and deep--but $60) and also resisted getting Mario's lasagna pan.  Plus now I have my LC open roasting pan which is nice and deep and BIG!!

I like that you can use it as a roasting pan and a lasagna pan.  I try to avoid single use items.  thanks for the idea.

It was $20 on Amazon (where else!). It's a nice pan with a rack.

Well, pyrex 9 x 13 pans come in different depths. I have and a blue 9 x 13 dish, and the blue is about an inch deeper than the brown. This recipe fits in my blue plan perfectly (it was a "fancier" one that came with its own cover) but I do think it would not fill my brown one.

Mine are all 2-3".  I even ordered a "lasagna" pan and it is the same depth. I have spent a good bit of time looking for deeper ones (4" is what I aimed for). Mario's made the cut for a while, and the LC pottery definitely did.


I am not really talking about that recipe in particular--I am talking about "my" lasagna recipes.  I just prefer it to be deeper than the glass pyrex dishes that I have--(2,3 and 4qt dishes).  Maybe I  make my layers thicker or whatever, but  I finally have solved all my "problems" with dishes that look better than the foil pans. But the veggie lasagna still tasted good even in foil--and it freezes in it.

I don't make lasagna very often, and my kitchen is so overpacked that I try to keep any extra items to a minimum. To make it worse, my mother is a potter so I'm SWIMMING in stone cookware. The one big dish she made for me that was appropriate for lasagna, however, cracked and broke.

I really cracked up at your mention of swimming in stone cookware. Even at handbuilding my pottery always had a problem. The wheel was devastating. If I had gifted you with pottery, you only would have had to worry about cat dishes. LOL.


PS I no longer take a pottery class.  Lucky for my relatives and friends.

I end up getting my mother's "seconds". She does a few shows every year, and I only get the stuff that has a problem with the glaze or some other flaw -- but it still usable and pretty. I have been BEGGING her for a tagine, though.

Ooooh, that would be lovely!  I need to look around for one.  I have the LC one, but I understand the pottery ones are much nicer.  Of course, don't use the one I have.  Scratch that idea!

Unfortunately, my mother does not take requests. Well, she does take them but she just doesn't fill them. She keeps promising that one of these days she will make me one. I'm not holding my breath, though.

Gosh, I am NOT enabling. I'm REALLY not....

And I am NOT buying this either. Even though it is an awesome deal. Just walking away...

Good thing you didn't have your heart set on it--no longer available. I saw that just before I clicked on "add".

What a mean thing to post that, I would have bought it in a heartbeat at that price!   Sigh.

For me, anyway. But I think some people here would have liked to order it.

OK, this is probably a dumb question, but I haven't navigated this site much. Where will I find the lasagna recipe in question?

Sorry. I was referring to the lasagna recipe from last fall. The one with the fresh noodles and bechamel sauce in place of cheese. Wrong recipe.
