What to serve with it

For Italians, Lasagna is considered a primo piatto (first plate) which means after we would serve a meat and side dish. Of course lasagna is usually served for special occasions such as Christmas or Easter. Which means, yes dessert would be served also.

The baked lasagna should be stored in the refrigerator, covered with plastic wrap or stored in an airtight container for 1-2 days. It can also be prepared the day before, be sure to cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate, remove from the fridge, let sit for about 30 minutes then bake.

It can also be frozen, unbaked be sure to cover it completely with foil. When ready to bake thaw it overnight in the fridge. Bake as directed in the recipe. You can also freeze baked lasagna, just be sure to cool it completely and cover with foil. Let it thaw in the fridge and reheat in the microwave or oven.

I used oven ready lasagna noodles, but you can also use fresh lasagna noodles or even dry noodles that need to be boiled first. Whatever you prefer will work just fine.

Imagine four layers of noodles, a wonderfully thick meat sauce, chopped fresh mozzarella , lots of freshly grated mozzarella and that creamy white sauce. Need I say more? Buon Appetito!
