Freezing lasagna

m

I'm making lasagna for an event tonight and made a double portion of meat sauce so I can keep one. To get the best result should I:

o prepare and cook the lasagna and then freeze
o pre-soak the lasagna noodles and assemble and freeze uncooked (probably not);
o or freeze only the meat sauce and defrost and then assemble/cook the lasagna?

Thanks!

    Are you making the no boil kind? I would use the boil method and assemble and freeze without cooking.

      if times not really a issue when you are going to remake it i would say to keep them seperate and assemble and cook when you want it again, because i think lasagna is best when it is fresh and gooey.

      but if you wanted to be able to have lasagna ready and waiting for you anytime, then i would say cook and then freeze. it should be fine either way

        It freezes fine - I do it all the time. Make your lasagna, cut into portions and freeze the portions.

          cook it, let cool down, freeze, reheat.
