This make ahead lasagne recipe for late dinner guests can sit in the fridge for up to 36 hours before baking slowly for an hour in the oven nicely timed to serve. The good thing about it is, that as it sits, the pasta sheets become softer and the whole dish flavours merge a little, resulting in the best lasagne ever.
People are frivolous, and often don’t realise how turning up late can ruin a meal for their host. You know yourself, set a time, and some arrive two hours late. So, we have to cater for all.
Lasagne is a great make ahead dinner for a crowd, and if you’re not sure how many are turning up, you could make several dishes of this recipe, and freeze any unused food afterwards.
Lasagne is delicious served with crispy garlic bread, coleslaw and freshly tossed salad, or serve it with skinny French fries like my sons do.
This easy lasagna recipe can be easily personalised, by making your own favourite red sauce recipe for Bolognese or using your favourite ready-made jar of sauce. Either way, you will be delighted at how much this make ahead dinner recipe takes the strain out of entertaining guests.
