The best part of make-ahead freezer lasagna is that the dish is a huge time saver in the long run. Forget that pot of boiling water and reach for no-boil lasagna noodles over regular ones, as recommended by Kitchn. Following your recipe, as usual, layer the uncooked, no-boil noodles in your baking dish for tender, rather than mushy, results when baked.
Keep in mind, though; no-boil noodles require plenty of liquid to cook through while they’re baking, so when you’re assembling, make sure you’re covering each pasta layer with a generous amount of sauce and cheese for best results, per Epicurious. When it’s time to pull your lasagna out of the freezer and bake it, wrap the baking dish tightly in tin foil for the majority of the cooking time, as doing so will create steam, helping to cook the no-bake noodles while keeping your dish from drying out.
Lastly, beware of common mistakes everyone makes with lasagna to whip up a cheesy, saucy, and comforting dish your family will remember fondly for years to come.
