lasagne - help me figure out how to make ahead

jono37 | Oct 8, 2008 08:17 PM

I want to make 2 lasagne for a dinner party, with home-made noodles. I would love to prepare ahead as much as possible - I actually would love it if I could start a week early, since I have lots of time this weekend.

Should I make the entire lasagne, bake them, freeze them, then reheat for the party?

How about making all the elements and assembling the day of or the day before?

Is it possible to make nice, thin, homemade noodles a week in advance without baking the lasagne and freezing them?

Any tips would be appreciated.

By the way, I plan on parboiling the noodles before I assemble the lasagne - that's what I've done before, and they come out really silky and delicious that way.
