Slip 'n' Slide Lasagna
We know that letting a dish of lasagna sit for 15 minutes or a half hour will help it firm up (and it'll also prevent diners from scorching the roofs of their mouths), but if you've taken that step and the cut lasagna is still runny, with all the layers sliding apart, it's time to rethink your presentation. Put each serving in a bowl and call it a "free-form" lasagna, says Lahey. You can melt some cheese on top to give it a finished look or, as Beisser suggests, slice it into strips so it looks more like tagliatelle. (And tell everyone at dinner that this was intentional, of course.)
