Can I prepare my whole lasagne in advance?

I am visiting a friend in hospital later and visiting times are when I would usually be prepping dinner. I am wondering if I can prepare and layer up the whole lasagne then put it in the fridge so all I have to do is put it in the oven when I get back. I will be using home made red sauce and shop bought white if it makes any difference.

Be absolutely fine smile it's the perfect make ahead dish. Means you can get the washing up out the way too and just have the plates.

I'm doing exactly the same thing today.

Lasagne is much better after a reheat. It's even better after 24 hours.

Yeah you can do this the day before if you want

I'd cook it too when you make it, and then reheat in the evening.

I've had the top pasta sheet curl up from the moisture if its not cooked.

But yes, you can do this - into the fridge or freezer either cooked or uncooked.

Yes but re bet it takes longer to cook from cold - don't do shop bought white, follow Jamie's advice and use creme fraiche instead, it's less claggy, less effort and gives better flavour.
