Lasagne noodles can be transformed into many different dishes. Appetizers, main courses, and desserts can all be made from lasagne noodles. Lasagne noodles are often purchased in a dry state, but must always be cooked before adding them to any dish. This prevents the noodles from remaining hard, and reduces the chances of damaging teeth.
