Very boring topic, I'm sorry! I'm heading away for a week and leaving my very poor defenceless husband all on his own. I wanted to freeze a few meals for him. I always cook, but never have frozen stuff! Lasagne- do I cook everything- or leave pasta sheets uncooked in it? See I am a useless wife, what else can I leave that he literally just has to stick in the oven, preferably stuff that won't need longer than a frozen pizza, because I'm not sure he'll be able to wait that long!

Cook the meal as if you were going to serve it - then portion it and freeze it.. All he has to do is defrost and re-heat.. Enjoy the hols!!

on the topic of freezing food, I've often wondered about how you would freeze certain foods. Like lasange or Shep pie for example... what do you put them into before putting into the freezer?

Sniper If I make lasagne or shep pie I leave it cool and go "solid" (sometimes do it the next day when its kind of fully set if that makes sense) and then cut it into portions and wrap it tightly in cling film or put it into sandwich/freezer type bags. So handy to just take them out and leave them in the fridge to defrost.
