Easy Homemade Lasagna (with a Make-Ahead Freezer Option!)

This delicious and easy homemade lasagna with a freezer option is perfect for dinner with family, friends, or on your own! This lasagna recipe can also be frozen before baking, so it can be used as a make-ahead freezer meal for yourself or someone who needs a dinner, like a new mom.

Hey y’all, Tiffany here.  This homemade freezer lasagna recipe has been handed down in my family.  My mom is a professional at making it!  It’s also one of our favorite 12 easy make-ahead freezer meals.

Easy Homemade Lasagna

  • 1 pound cooked hamburger
  • 1 box cooked lasagna noodles (I cook with a tbsp of vegetable oil in with the water to prevent sticking)
  • 24 oz cottage cheese
  • 4 eggs
  • 3 Tbsp parsley (optional)
  • 2 large jars of tomato sauce
  • grated cheese (cheddar, mozzeralla, and more)

Lately, I’ve actually been preferring to use oven-ready lasagna noodles for my homemade freezer lasagna.  They seem to make the lasana more firm.  We also enjoy experimenting with different types of cheese.

In a bowl, mix the eggs, cottage cheese, and parsley (also some grated cheese if desired).

In a casserole dish, layer tomato sauce on the bottom. Then place a layer of lasagna noodles. On top, layer cottage cheese mixture and then sprinkle hamburger.

Repeat these layers one more time, then top with a layer of noodles and put the rest of the grated cheese.

Bake in oven at 350 for about an hour (follow directions on the box of the lasagna noodles) and until the cheese is bubbling.

Freezer Option for Easy Homemade Lasagna

Once you’ve put your homemeade freezer lasgna layers together, just cover with tin foil and pop in the freezer!

When you’re ready to make it, let it defrost in the fridge or on the counter, then cook for the usual amount of time.

We like to use tin foil casserole dishes to make our freezer meals. This way we don’t use up all of our nice dishes in the freezer, and it makes them easier to give to a new mom or someone who is unwell.
