Don't just make one meal and freeze it. Make four or five and freeze them in individual servings or servings for two. If you're going to cook, make it count.
Personally, I find 3 or 4 recipes and double or triple them. Shop once, cook once and freeze many 2 person servings. (If you have more people you are preparing for, freeze in batches that work for you.)
If your recipe is a 'freezer meal' that you've found and it tells you to freeze everything together, edit that one out immediately - and any others with it. The person who wrote that doesn't know what they are doing... I've made this mistake.

If you are one who requires precise measurement, you can find this recipe formally listed here.
... Done. SO easy! Makes great tacos, great on rice alone, great in a taco salad.... LOVE, love, LOVE this one. You can serve it up right away or freeze it in smaller portions to have available whenever.

NOTE: Adjust your timing with consideration that you will now be putting the lasagna in the oven as a frozen meal. This exact length of time is TBD but I started with doubling original cooking times instructed.
Side note: Technically, I'm showing you how to make a cake drum (thick) with cake boards (thin). However, I don't often go for technicalities so I call everything a cake board. Sorry folks, that's just how I roll. (I'm also one of those people who refuses to order a Starbucks coffee using any of their fancy lingo. It's a Medium Soy Latte people... nothing more, nothing less.) But I digress...SO, this is a GREAT tip if you need a cake board that is of a custom shape or size! I am showing you how to make it with standard 12" round boards, but once you know the skills, you can apply them however you'd like!
