Can anyone give me some advice?
I've assembled my lasagna and put it in the fridge for DP to "cook" in the oven tomorrow as I am late home. Recipe says 180 for 30 minutes but I have a feeling that's for when it's just prepared. How long should he cook it? What temp? Any ideas?

I'd cook it now and he can reheat tomorrow. If he takes a portion and puts it in an ovenproof dish, then puts in the oven on 180 (fan) for about 15mins, it should be OK. That seems fine when we do it.

lasangne grin. It will be fine, so if it takes 35 - 40 mins it will be fine.

If it’s been chilled at 4 degrees then 180 for 45 minutes makes it perfect. If frozen increase it to at least an hour

Although it will be cold, the pasta will have softened from the sauce so it shouldn't take too much longer.

Thanks, @30to50FeralHogs. I was weighing up the cold dish v semi cooked pasta.
I don't want to bake it tonight and then reheat as there are 4 of us looking forward to home made lasagna tomorrow evening!
Will ask him to put it in at 6pm and take it out at 6.45 and put in the garlic bread then. Hopefully it will all be fine! I should be back for 6.30 if I'm not delayed DP has many many skills but none of them are culinary :-)

@elephantoverthehill are you trying to correct the OPs spelling. Because "lasangne" isn't right either.

Cook it now, lasagne is loads better the second time, heated through the next day.

I usually cook mine for about half an hour to start with and then another 15 minutes to heat it up. That way your pasta doesn't go soggy which it might do if you leave it overnight- it might also soak up the liquid and then you get the double whammy of soggy pasta yet not enough sauce. So I'd do it for half an hour today iyswim?
Enjoy your perfectly spelled dinner! wink

@Bean I was just having a bit of a laugh with Help with lasagna, please, as I didn't really help grin no offence intended.
