Freezing lasagna - before or after cooking it?
by Barbara Stewart
(Round Rock, TX)
I have lasagna all layered in a freezable dish and I'm not sure whether I should freeze it before it is cooked, or after it is cooked... ?
Please advise Matt!
We always cook the lasagna and then let it cool for a good while before freezing it.
The reason is simple - lasagna tends to take on a more stable, secure form when cooked and cooled, whereas the layers and ingredients of an uncooked lasagna can slide around a lot in the freezer drawer.
You'll find more info, including a free downloadable Freezing Lasagna quick-guide, over on this page.
Hope that helps,
