What do you mean by tenting the aluminum tray?
In the directions what does it mean to "tent" aluminum lid over product tray And place product tray on a baking sheet. Does it mean to take aluminum lid off the product tray, fold it in half and place it over the product tray like a tent? I've never heard the term "tent" before with baking. Thank you.

Bend the lid down the middle to form a "tent" shape and place loosely on tray to prevent steaming while baking but prevent cheese from burning.
A tent foil lid means that when you put the lasagna in they want you to cover it in foil but not tightly like you would if you were putting it in the fridge. They want you to create a "tent" over the lasagna surface to that air can get in and any cheese on top doesn't stick to it. Basically, do not seal around the edges of the pan. You don't want to crimp the edges to the rim of the pan, because you want it to be able to breath some and for the cheese not to stick to the top. Hope that helps!

Yes, that's basically what it means. Fold it slightly lengthwise down the middle. Just enough that it's not touching. This is to prevent the top layer from sticking to the lid during the first, initial part of the baking process.

We recommend bending up or “tenting” the lid to keep it from sticking to the product while baking.
