View Full Version : Freezing a white lasagna

Is it possible??
My mom makes the most delicious chicken ham lasagna. I want to make it for a friend who has recently had surgery. I already know her church group is preparing meals for her and her family for a while but I wanted to make something that she or her husband could just pull out of the freezer once the meals stop coming. Mom's lasagna popped into my head but I have never tried freezing it. The only thing I am worried about would be the white sauce separating. I don't have her exact recipe on hand but this sauce recipe I found on line is very similar
3/4 cup butter (http://www.recipezaar.com/library/getentry.zsp?id=141) 1 cup flour (http://www.recipezaar.com/library/getentry.zsp?id=64) 3 tablespoons dried onions, minced 1 teaspoon garlic powder (http://www.recipezaar.com/library/getentry.zsp?id=501) 1/2 teaspoon black pepper (http://www.recipezaar.com/library/getentry.zsp?id=337) 4-5 cups chicken broth (http://www.recipezaar.com/library/getentry.zsp?id=154) 2 cups milk (http://www.recipezaar.com/library/getentry.zsp?id=360) 1 cup parmesan cheese (http://www.recipezaar.com/library/getentry.zsp?id=467), grated

YUM.. I love lasagne. I have frozen lasagne with no particular problem in re-heating - however I do put a layer of grated cheese over the top so that when the meal is heated up this just melts into the topping. I believe a small amount of bread crumbs under the cheese can help 'hold' a white sauce but I've never tried it.
