Kraft Kitchen Tips!
Serving Suggestion
Serve with a green salad tossed with your favourite Kraft Dressing.
If you only have 1 (13x9-inch) baking dish and want to free it up for other uses, line the empty dish with foil, with ends of foil extending over sides. Assemble lasagna in prepared dish; cover with plastic wrap. Freeze until firm. Use foil handles to lift lasagna from dish; wrap tightly with plastic wrap. Freeze up to 2 months. When ready to serve, unwrap lasagna and place in 13x9-inch baking dish sprayed with cooking spray; cover with foil. Thaw overnight in refrigerator, then bake as directed.
