How to Customize the Size of a Casserole Dish

How to make any casserole dish smaller when you don't have the right size pan

Recently the father of a good friend passed away. In times like these the last thing people want to worry about is getting dinner on the table. I immediately put together my quick lasagna and dropped it off with garlic bread and salad so they would have at least one home cooked dinner that week. I didn’t want my friends to worry about getting a dish back to me so I bought a tinfoil throw away. The pan was way bigger than my noodles so I used this little trick to customize the size of my casserole dish.

How to make any casserole dish smaller when you don't have the right size pan


I love to use no-bake noodles from Barilla when I make lasagna. You just layer everything in with them and there is no reason to pre-cook and dirty another pot. It’s quick and easy. The throwaway lasagna pan I bought was way to big and I didn’t want the lasagna spreading out all over the pan making a huge mess when they cooked it. After I layered my lasagna in the pan I got out my tinfoil and customized the size of my pan. All you need to do is take off a big piece and crumple it up. Put it down in the pan between your casserole and the side of the pan. You many need to do more than one piece depending on the size. You want it to be firmly in there.
