Can you freeze lasagna?

I made way too much lasagna tonight. Can you freeze a homemade baked lasagna that has mushrooms, ricotta and cottage cheese? And, if you do you bake it when you're ready to eat it again?

  • Yes, it works out well when frozen and is a nice treat later on. I usually freeze in a 9X9 or so pan to fit better in my small freezer. Freezing in a big pan means it will take a while to heat in the oven unless it is thawed first. But freezing in single portion sizes, although quicker to reheat in the oven, and able to be heated in the microwave, get lost in the jumble in my freezer. What you could do to freeze individual portions is to confine them all in a bigger bag. If you freeze the leftover lasagna in a microwave-safe dish, you can reheat it in the microwave. About times: remember that lasagna is dense. So it takes a while to thaw in the refrigerator or if not thawed, a good while to heat in the microwave or warm in the oven. Warm it unconcovered, since it doesn't need moisture baked out.

  • Oh yum :) Yes you can freeze it. I cut it up in individual pieces and put in individual ziplocks. Great lunches and single meals. Or just cover the pan well and put it in the freezer. Its good for a month or so.

  • You sure can. I always make more than what my family can eat so that I can freeze the leftovers. It makes for quick meals and lunches.

  • Yes, you can. Either whole or in individual servings. Not sure how to heat it up once it's frozen.
