This is the best lasagna ever!! The noodles are so nice and thin and there is NO PREBOILING!! I will never purchase any other lasagna other than Barilla. I’ve been making this now for 3 years and everyone agrees–the recipe makes the very best! The instructions are right on the back of the lasagna box. I usually make multiple batches and freeze them. Its a great housewarming or “new baby” meal for a friend!

When it comes to storing your pasta, there are a few key things to keep in mind.
- First, always make sure that your pasta is properly sealed in an airtight container. This will keep it from drying out and losing its flavor.
- Second, if you’re going to be storing your pasta for more than a few days, be sure to put it in the fridge. This will help to keep it fresh and prevent any bacteria from growing.
- Finally, when you’re ready to cook your pasta, be sure to bring a pot of water to a boil before adding the pasta
. This will help to ensure that it cooks evenly and doesn’t stick together.

There are a few things to take into consideration when trying to figure out what to serve with Princes Pasta. The first is the type of pasta being used. If it is a more delicate pasta, then a light sauce or even just olive oil and garlic would be best. If the pasta is more hearty, then a heavier sauce or even meat could be used. Another thing to consider is what other ingredients are going into the dish. If there are already a lot of strong flavors, then something simple like bread and butter might be best. Ultimately, it is up to the chef to decide what will pair well with their dish.
