My mother always made lasagna without boiling the noodles--not even the "no boil" noodles--just regular ones.

I don't know if this counts as "no boil", but this is one of my favorite basic recipes: https://www.marthastewart.com/108236...-one-pot-pasta

This is a good idea. I tried no-boil lasagna noodles once, and we didn't like them. But then again, we like our pasta is a little softer than al dente usually.

We didn't like them, either. It's not that they come out al dente. They're hard and pasty.

Yeah...pretty much. And lasagna is a fairly expensive and time-consuming thing to make, so I'd rather not ruin another batch by trying the no-boil noodles again, really.

I'm sort of afraid to try this idea of regular uncooked noodles in lasagna, because I imagine it only works if your red sauce is rather liquidy. My spaghetti meat sauce which I use is very thick so I don't know think it would cook the noodles.
