Should I cover lasagna while cooking it?

Will covering it help to prevent it from drying out? Merry Christmas!

Answer:

Hi Bonnie,

You don't need to cover it, no.

The key thing is to save plenty of sauce to put on the very top layer, along with a sprinkling of grated parmesan. (Don't add mozzarella or basil however, as these will burn.)

That's what I do and dry lasagna is never a problem!

Merry Christmas to you to, have a great holiday.

Matt.

What if I forgot to get foil & I have the no-boil lasagne & I already put the mozarella cheese & parm cheese on the top & I have people eating over waiting?

As explained above, you don't need to cover it.

If you have any tomato sauce, left, add a little to the top.

As for the cheese etc., just put it in the bottom of your oven, at 180C/350F, and watch it carefully to see it doesn't burn.

It'll be fine! :-)
