No, the plastic will melt in the oven ============= You can't wrap the DISH in plastic wrap then foil, but you can wrap the FOOD in plastic wrap, then foil, THEN put it in the dish to bake. Keep the temperature no higher than 350*F (177*C). Works great with ribs. Well I'll have to disagree with this answer. Just last night I baked a plastic wrap covered Lasagna in Pyrex..... in fact, I made two 9 x 9 dishes without consequence. The pasta heated nicely in 45 minutes @ 350*. Easy removal without any cheese sticking to the wrap.... unlike it does with aluminum foil.
