Ultimate meat lasagna

When it comes to comfort food, meat lasagna is up there on top of the list! The best part of this dish is that you can serve it as a weeknight dinner (prepared previously), as a Sunday lunch, for holiday celebrations… It’s just perfect! So, here’s a few tips to keep in mind!

Basic Lasagna with meaty sauce – This is the perfect dish to make when you have sometime because it can be made in advance. It is prepared with a homemade tomato sauce, ground beef, and layers of three kinds of cheese and lasagna noodles.

Italian Sausage Lasagna – This is a family favourite for so many people. It is very easy to make and satisfying, and it’s sure to be a hit with your family, too. It’s made with Pavão’s Italian sausage (mild or spicy) in place of the usual ground beef, prepared with a classic tomato sauce and the cheese combo (ricotta, Parmesan and mozzarella) we all love.

Instant pot lasagna – Yes, this is an awesome take on lasagna. It’s made with ground beef, mozzarella and Parmesan cheese, marinara sauce, and oven-baked lasagna. And it’s ready in about half the time.

Freeze lasagna – One of the best things about lasagna is that it freezes really well. Perhaps the biggest question is if you should to bake the lasagna before freezing. While lasagna freezes really well, baking, freezing, thawing, and re-baking inevitably takes a toll on the quality of the ingredients. A baked, frozen, then re-baked lasagna will still be good. But it’s at the margins where quality is affected. If you’re making this lasagna for your own household, this might not be as important. But a lasagna is a perfect dish to prepare as a gift for someone who has just had a baby, getting over an illness, or is grieving. And as such, giving someone a baked, then frozen lasagna is like giving them leftovers. Whereas giving them an unbaked lasagna is giving them a fresh meal.
