Step one: You need to bake lasagna in any dish which can be frozen.

• If you are thinking about giving a better taste to your lasagna, you can do so when you are baking it. When you are baking lasagna, you can add some fresh herbs on its top. This will give it a great taste.
• Always use herbs which are fresh when you are baking. When you shall ultimately have it after some months, the aroma shall be well released in your baking table.
