Expert Tips

Wrap the dish of unbaked lasagna tightly with aluminum foil and freeze up to 1 month. Bake frozen lasagna covered 40 minutes, then uncover and bake about 40 minutes longer or until hot and bubbly.

You can use 6 ounces of chopped imitation crabmeat for the canned crabmeat in this recipe. It adds a nice touch of color!
