Favorite Cheesy Lasagna – freezer meal

The secret ingredient in this Lasagna recipe sends this lasagna flying off the charts! Lasagna is the  Italian comfort food, that always gets applause from my family. Why not make a few pans ahead and freeze them, so you can have this cheesy comfort food more often!
Favorite Cheesy Lasagna (freezer meal)

My friends and I recently made this recipe during our freezer meal cooking day.   I have a lasagna recipe that I have never veered from, so I have to admit I was a little apprehensive about trying a new one.  Even though I love cream cheese I was skeptical of the cream cheese sauce.  So when Jill (freezer meal pal) said that her family loved this lasagna, “it was the best they had ever had!!”.   I had to get it out of the freezer, like pronto, and see for myself.  Yep, she was right my family said the same….new favorite cheesy lasagna!!

 

 

Favorite Cheesy Lasagna (freezer meal)Hows that for a beautiful dinner table?!  Love it!  I love dinner table photos.  If a picture speaks a thousand words, what does this one say to you?  Everything thrown shelter skelter, elbows on the table……

 

IMG_0531This lasagna recipe is from one of my well-loved community cookbooks.   I texted my friend Michelle who submitted the recipe and asked her if I could use it.  I told her I was skeptical of the cream cheese layer, but that it was amazing; so creamy, cheese, and so on and so forth and what have you…..(name that sitcom, and who said that line,  and I will make you this lasagna).   Like the true foodie friend that she is she texted back ” Oh my dear friend you should never ever be skeptical of cream cheese.  Cream cheese is a beautiful thing.”  I hung my head in shame.  Of course she was right.  How could I ever have doubted cream cheese?

Now all you cream cheese nay sayers out there…trust me on this.  My husband is a weird freekin’ guy who doesn’t eat cream cheese, sour cream, cream fresh, mayonnaise or anything marvelous and wonderful of the sort, and he loved this lasagna.  He has no idea what he was eating…of course.  He loved it.

 

 

What’s on your meal plan this week?
