Tips from an Italian on Cooking Lasagna

1. After boiling your lasagna noodles, place in cold water so they do not continue to cook. If they continue to cook you may be left with mushy noodles. Leave them in the water until you are ready to layer them into your dish.

2. Do you find that your noodles stick to the bottom of your pan? Use non stick cooking spray as well as a little bit of sauce before you place your first layer of noodles.

3. Let your lasagna stand for at least 15 minutes before cutting into it. This allows the cheese to really set and won't make such a runny mess at the dinner table.

4. You can use large slices of zucchini instead of noodles. Awesome way to use up your garden zucchini.

Enjoy your diabetic cheese lasagna!
