Spinach & Ricotta Lasagne

Does this freeze well? I'm hoping to freeze it uncooked.

Spinach & Ricotta Lasagne

Hello plum123,

I haven’t tested freezing this recipe but I think you could do providing you take the time to extract all of the liquid that you can from the spinach.

Best wishes

i can i think vouch for our James here, and confirm that this recipe behaves very well made a day or 2 ahead of time, and also for freezing.

I would however recommend that you defrost before "cooking" even if previously uncooked - as it does - depending on size of dish - take forever to cook.

great dish for making into individual portions for ready meals (that just take about 40-45 mins to cook from frozen in the oven) enough time to get home from work, turn tv/radio on, shower, change into your pj's, dry hair and have a glass of wine.

Thanks, Sam. If only it were for a relaxed night in, it's for the veggie option at a large "do" which is why I'm stressing about it rather more than is strictly necessary.

When you've prepared it a couple of days in advance, did you cook and reheat or assemble, chill and then cook it when needed?

Final question on the subject, I promise....

I prepare and assemble everything allow to cool, then cover, pop in the fridge - all uncooked, ie last bake, for 50 mins.

then about 15 mins before i want to cook it, take out of the fridge so its not proper cold prior to putting in the oven.

ps. I never add the pine nuts.

Thanks

Thanks again, Sam, very much appreciated.

I'm in Arundel & taking the dish to Sompting so can always pop and ask you for any last minute advice!

PS Glad to hear that you don't use the pine nuts, they're soooo expensive.
