How long to cook lasagna sheets?

Cook the lasagna sheets so that they do not stick to each other. To do this, before cooking, pour a little oil into a large amount of boiling water, and only then spread the pasta sheets. Cook lasagna sheets for 5 minutes until half cooked in a wide saucepan or frying pan. If there is a need to cook until fully cooked, then cook for 10 minutes.

How to make lasagna sheets at home

Take 600 grams of flour and sift through a fine sieve. This will not only get rid of unnecessary impurities and lumps, but also saturate the flour with oxygen, which will make the dough airy. Pour the sifted flour in a handful on the table and make a hole in the middle.

Crack 3 eggs into the hole and add 1 teaspoon of salt. Gradually knead the dough. It should be steep and elastic – when pressed, the trace should disappear. If the dough is too thick, dampen your hands with water and continue to knead. Cover the resulting dough with a towel so that it does not dry out, and leave to rest for half an hour.

Divide the dough into several pieces. Sprinkle a little flour on the table and roll out each part in succession into a sheet 1-1.5 mm thick. Cut the finished sheet into rectangles or squares of the desired size. As a rule, a baking dish is taken as a sample.

Lay the sheets on horizontal surfaces to dry. The sheets should not dry out, otherwise they will begin to crumble. Store prepared lasagna sheets in a sealed container.
