Let's be really honest. Lasagne is delicious. But few of us have time to make it... it's got too many individual components (and it creates a lot of washing up!)
This dinner is the classic version: slow cooked bolognese sauce, layered with pasta and topped with béchamel sauce and parmesan cheese.
When madness looms large on the horizon (work overtime, additional music practices) it is a great meal to have on standby in the freezer too. Delivered to your home frozen, it cooks beautifully straight from the freezer. Indeed, put it straight from the box it's delivered in into the waiting oven (but do remove the plastic packaging first).
If sanity permits, you can defrost overnight in the fridge before putting it in the oven.
