Lasagna Freezer Recipe

I love making easy freezer meals ahead of time and always having a freezer stocked with homemade, ready to eat food. Lasagna is one of the easiest and tastiest freezer meal recipes around. I’ve adapted my Italian sausage lasagna recipe to be very freezer friendly with minimal prep involved! Now you can make your own freezer lasagna recipe instead of buying preservative laden meals at the grocery store.

Servings 8


  • 1 # ground Italian sausage or lean ground beef
  • 1/2 cup onion chopped
  • 1 clove garlic minced
  • 3 Tbsp fresh parsley chopped
  • 1 Tbsp fresh basil chopped
  • 1 tsp sugar
  • 1 14 1/2 oz can diced petite tomatoes
  • 1 15 oz can tomato sauce
  • 12-16 lasagna noodles uncooked
  • 2 cups cottage cheese
  • 1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese
  • 1 Tbsp fresh oregano chopped
  • 2 cups shredded mozzarella cheese


  • In a large saute pan cook sausage, onion and garlic over medium heat, stirring occasionally, until no longer pink.
  • Drain grease and return to pan.
  • Stir in 2 Tbsp of the parsley, the basil, sugar, tomatoes, and tomato sauce.
  • Heat to boiling, stirring occasionally.
  • Mix together cottage cheese, 1/4 cup of Parmesan cheese, the oregano and remaining 1 Tbsp of parsley in a medium bowl.
  • In a 9x13 pan (or 2 8x8 pans), spread 1/2 of the sausage mixture on the bottom. Cover the sausage mixture with the uncooked noodles (they will cook later during normal cooking and don't need to be boiled ahead).
  • Spread half the cottage cheese mixture over the noodles.
  • Sprinkle with 1 cup mozzarella cheese
  • Add a layer of uncooked noodles
  • Top with remaining sausage mixture
  • Top with a layer of uncooked noodles
  • Cover with remaining ricotta cheese mixture
  • Sprinkle with remaining mozzarella cheese and remaining 1/4 cup of Parmesan cheese.
  • Then freeze: Cover with a layer of plastic wrap pushed down against the cheese. Then wrap in a layer of foil, label and freeze.
  • To cook: Thaw in fridge overnight and bake covered at 350 degrees F for 45 minutes, uncover and bake an additional 15-20 minutes until hot and bubbly. If cooking from frozen add an additional 35-45 minutes until hot and bubbly.

SOLO Chalkboard Cup

My husband and I are pretty much up for anything so when my family stopped by the other night I popped one of my frozen lasagnas in the oven and broke out the SOLO cups and plates and we had an impromptu get together. It was a blast!

Chalkboard SOLO Cup

I thought the peel & scratch cups were pretty cool. They look like a chalkboard and you use your nail to scratch in your name. I love not getting my cup mixed up with anyone else’s cup too! I’m a bit of a germ-o-phobe.

The kids were happy to have fun cups with a special drink in them too.

Carson said “What IS this?!” because we let him try some root beer. He thought the fizz was funny!

  2. Oh this is just great. When I make a lasagna I always make two. One for now and one for freezing 🙂 Thanks for sharing your recipe.

  3. I am going to have to give this a try. I am working on making foods to stock up our freezer now that we finally have it up and running again – this is perfect for my boys.

  4. Freezer meals are so great to have on hand. Being able to whip out a great meal when you have unexpected guests is wonderful. Those cups are pretty neat and perfect for a get together!

  7. I love the chalkboard idea on the solo – how clever! Nothing more annoying at a party than trying to figure out which glass is yours! Ive been experimenting with lasagne recipes, and the italian sausage adds a big layer of flavor into it, definitely essential. If you don’t want to buy it, you can easily add your own seasonings to meat.

  8. This recipe sounds yummy! I can’t wait to try it! I do have a dumb question though. Do I need to remove the plastic wrap from underneath the foil before I bake it?

  9. Can I mix the cottage cheese with ricotta cheese for the mixture? And can I use no boil oven ready lasagna noodles?

    1. I use cottage cheese but it is really just preference. You can use either one! Yes, those noodles should be fine. I just use the regular noodles though, no need to buy no boil.
