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.
