Heat Up Lasagna In A Pan Instead Of A Microwave

Heat Up Lasagna In A Pan Instead Of A Microwave

If you have some leftover lasagna, your first instinct might be to throw it in the microwave to heat it up. If you slice it and fry it up in a pan, you’ll upgrade your leftovers.

Serious Eats explains why lasagna doesn’t reheat well:

Like macaroni and cheese, once it cools and sits overnight, the pasta absorbs liquid from the sauce. What was once a nice loose casserole with creamy sauce and al dente pasta turns into a solid, semi-dry mass with the texture of overly firm custard and no distinct layers, even after reheating it.

Their trick is to slice it and then heat them up in a pan. The cheese melts and each slice crisps up. Best of all: there’s no fighting over the corner pieces here because every slice tastes like a corner piece.
