using gyoza wrapper for lasagna noodles?

I don't know if this would work so rather than wrecking some ingredients for the sake of experimentation, I thought that I would ask if anyone has tried this.

  1. Works for ravioli, but sounds a little thin of premise and pasta for lasagna. I've never tried it, but it would have to be pretty dire circumstances.

      don't they come covered with cornstarch? don't know what the flavor would be like. Bland, I'd imagine. But thinness? I roll my pasta at the next to last setting for lasagne. I like it thin! More layers!

        I've heard this many times, and tried using gyozas for ravioli and didn't like them at all. They were too chewy and...just weird.

        To each his/her own, I suppose.

      2. There was a post on this board recently where there was a link to someone who made mini-lasagnes using wonton wrappers.

            Thanks Hannaone! It was third link.


            Reene, I would definitely not boil the gyoza. They're too delicate. The recipe that I linked to actually doubles up on the wonton wrapper for each layer. But as gyoza is a bit thicker than wonton wrappers, you may want to experiment.

        1. I actually tried this a couple months ago... loving my pasta layers thin but being too lazy to roll it out. Anyways, it didn't work out very well. I boiled the wrappers prior to layering, and they ended up being way too mushy. If you decide to go forward with the idea, I would layer with raw wrappers.
