Though lasagna is a favorite dinner dish for many, most people don’t have time at the end of a busy day to prepare it. To simplify the task a little, you can purchase no-boil noodles commercially, with numerous brands to choose from, taking at least one step out of the prep process. If the remaining steps still don’t fit into your schedule, making the lasagna in advance and freezing it can be advantageous for the busy family.

Step 1

Cook the lasagna.

Step 2

Remove the lasagna from the oven and set it aside to set for five to 10 minutes.

Step 3

Place the lasagna into the refrigerator for 30 minutes to an hour to reduce the temperature.

Step 4

Package the lasagna for freezing in the manner that will be most convenient later on. If you will reheat the entire lasagna at once, transfer it into an aluminum foil lined baking dish and cover it tightly with another layer of aluminum foil. The lasagna can also be cut into servings and stored in rigid airtight containers.

Step 5

Mark the current date on the packaging with a marker or by attaching a homemade label.

Step 6
