Weird baked pasta trick! :)

I used to use a metal measuring cup turned upside down on top of a lasagna to “tent” the aluminum foil cover so it won’t stick to the melty mozarella. However, I don’t like the way the cup leaves a ring in the cheese top of the finished lasagna. Also, when I remove the cup, it usually takes a bit of cheese with it, leaving a tear/hole in the cheese.

I think I have found the perfect solution: run a pair of bamboo grilling skewer through the aluminum foil and rest them across the top of the baking dish.

The result is an almost perfectly clean foil after baking:
