When making lasagna you do NOT have to boil the noodles first. And you do not have to use the special no boil noodles. I've used white and whole wheat pasta. Both work just fine. All you have to do is layer like normal. Cuts down on prep and clean up time.
Looking at the Nutrition Facts on my former favorite noodle snacks left me passing them up, until I found a better alternative. Mama Bean Thread Noodles (50 cents or so at Wal*Mart) have a mere 140 cals/3.5 g fat for the whole package. My MO - Steam bok choy & mushrooms with the seasoning packets in the microwave, then add the boiled noodles. Spicy and a little garlicy & won't send you over your tracker count...who could ask for more?
