How to Freeze Lasagna for Individual Servings

How to Freeze Lasagna for Individual Servings

When I was coming up for meals to make for my frozen week I did a lot of research on what types of dishes freeze well.

Lasagna came up on almost every google search and forum that I read as the best frozen meal.

The problem was that everyone had a different opinion about how to freeze lasagna correctly.  Some said you shouldn’t freeze meat versions, some said you should freeze the lasagna before cooking it, some after.

I compiled all of this info in my noggin and came up with a great lasagna recipe that freezes very well. Also, I’m pretty sure that I came up with the best way for how to freeze lasagna! Feel free to debate if you want, but I’m pretty sure I nailed it.
