LAZY DAY LASAGNE
When preparing lasagna for the freezer there's no need to
precook the noodles.
12 ounces lasagna noodles, uncooked
5-6 cups spaghetti sauce
2 cups cream-style cottage cheese, or ricotta
12 ounces Mozzarella cheese, sliced or grated
1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese
In two greased 10x6x2-inch baking dishes, make layers in the following
order: half each noodles, cottage cheese, Mozzarella slices,
spaghetti sauce, and sprinkled Parmesan cheese. Repeat. Make certain
the dry noodles are completely covered by sauce. Wrap pans completely
with foil; label and freeze. (To make this meal incredibly
rich, add one 8-ounce package cream cheese. Pinch off nickel-sized
portions of cream cheese and plop evenly over lasagna just before
adding the second layer of uncooked pasta.)
To Serve: To thaw, take meal from freezer at least 24 hours
before serving. Place in refrigerator. Bake tightly covered at
350° for about 45 minutes, or until edges are bubbly and center
is hot. Take cover off during final 10 minutes of cooking time.
Let stand 10 minutes before serving.
