Pre-boil fresh pasta sheets for lasagna?

I'm making lasagna and I have some whole wheat fresh pasta sheets. Do they need to be pre-boiled or can I just layer them as is?

Layer them as is -- no need to pre-boil them. We make lasagna with fresh pasta a few times a year and always just use it as is. Enjoy your lasagna!

Agreed. We do the same thing.

When using uncooked pasta sheets,i think all would caution you to use a good amount of wet sauce layered w/ your noodles.

Fresh pasta sheets don't need to be cooked before layering your lasagne. Actually, you don't need to pre-cook dried lasagne noodles, either. Just add an extra dollop of wet sauce, and it bakes up perfectly.
