No Boiling: A Barilla Oven Ready Lasagne Review

I'm a chef, I like to cook, and I enjoy eating many types of food. When the Vine program offered Barilla pasta, I went nuts and ordered several shapes. The Lasagne is the last box I chose to use; making the recipe on the back of the box.

Barilla, established in Parma Italy during 1877, is Italy's #1 brand of pasta. Barilla Pasta, a product of the USA, is made from semolina (wheat), durum flour, eggs, niacin, ferrous lactate (iron), thiamine mononitrate, riboflavin, and folic acid. Each box contains about 5 servings of about 190 calories each. Preparation simply requires layering in the uncooked rolled flat noodles into your dish.

The first layer of the lasagna started with sauce, noodles, and then the ricotta mixture. Spreading the ricotta mixture over the dry noodles required care, or the noodles would crack and break. Most of the noodles were already broken, mostly little chips off the sides. Only one sheet was severely broken, which I attempted to piece together. I was concerned shipping would cause damaged noodles, however they seemed to hold up as well as any I've bought at the supermarket.

The instructions didn't say which direction to lay the noodles only that they would expand, so I tried both length (two rows of two) and width (one row of four), the latter seemed to work the best as the noodles expand generously.

I continued to add layers until the lasagna was ready for the oven. Once baked, I pulled the lasagna out of the oven, made some garlic bread, and served dinner. The top of the lasagna was wavy, not the appearance I would expect. The noodles were a little tough in that I could pick out a noodle with a fork and pull it out in one piece. However the noodles cut easily with a fork and were tasty.

Of all the Barilla pastas, the oven ready lasagne noodles are my least favored. The noodles do not require boiling and offer everything promised. However the texture and appearance isn't desirable for me. As a chef, I am choosy. If you don't care as much about these qualities, Barilla Lasagne will work well for you.

PROS:
Simple to prepare
Noodles expand to fill in the gaps.
Pleasing flavor
Barilla attempts to be environmentally friendly

CONS:
Noodle a little on the tough side
Expansion causes a wavy top appearance
